The Fall Session will begin on Sunday, September 16, 2018. You must pre-register by contacting us either by email or at (613) 789-9996, so we can create leader-follower balance.
We offer regular classes for each level of dance. Wherever you are in your tango journey, we can help.
Tango 1: Fundamentals for beginners – the embrace, leader-follower connection, basic walking, the cross, ochos, simple musicality, and essential floorcraft.
Tango 2: Continue your tango journey. We’ll build on the fundamentals and explore turns, the cross system, and begin working on milonga. (Pre-requisite: Tango 1)
Intermediate Tango: Dive deeper into tango. We’ll explore turns and strengthen fundamental concepts for social dancing. We will also cover milonga and vals, as time permits. (Pre-requisite: Tango 3)
Dancing in Place: Dancing in the same spot at a crowded milonga is an essential skill. Doing so creatively is a challenge! We’ll give leaders options to navigate with confidence; followers will learn to contribute in a smaller space. (Pre-requisite: Intermediate/Advanced Tango)
Tango with brigitte and Francis: Create a more connected, musical dance by delving into the little technical details. We challenge you to go beyond “steps” and take command of your movement for a more vibrant, creative tango.
We will offer Mini-Sessions on Sundays and Wednesdays.

September 16 – October 21: Musicality 1
Choices based on what you hear in the music create greater presence in the moment. Learn about the underlying structures and patterns in tango music, and interact more deeply with the music and your partner. With Francis and Jewel. (All levels)
October 28 – November 25: Musicality 2
Not all tango music is the same; why dance the same way to every song? We’ll talk about using changes in intensity, dynamics, and movement quality to have a more “co-creative” dance. With Francis and Jewel. (Pre-requisite: Basic Musicality)
Wednesdays, 8:00 – 9:30 PM
8 classes, 90 minutes each
$150 per person, $135 for full-time students. Includes HST.
