Revealing “The Secrets of Tango Milonguero”
This pre-registration class is for advanced–couples only with at least two years of intensive experience. It will cover: creativity and musical expression; changes of velocity and direction; communication: a dialog where partner’s bodies listen and influence each other’s dance; dancing the pauses and the silences; using energy transfers and not a physical force.
Cost: $35.00 for one class only, or $30.00 each for two or more classes.
Private classes: May 14, 15, 18-20th. $100.00 with either teacher, $150.00 if both. Scheduling for private classes and “couples-only” class: Armando/Diana at 206-232-2580 (H) or 206-427-4036 (M).
Organizers: Armando Lindner, Ilana Ruben and Amy Allison
Both teachers will attend Milonga Cachirulo on Friday, May 15 at Belltown Dance Studio and Dance Underground on Saturday, May 16.
