We offer Argentine tango classes in the Boston area for dancers of all levels. No partner necessary.
Fresh from Buenos Aires! The new MIT classes are starting on Monday, Aug 19 – please join us or tell your friends who might be interested.
5 MONDAYS, Aug 19 – Sep 23 (no class on Sep 2 – Labor Day)
We will be rotating in both classes. **However, those who register with the partner for the intermediate/advanced class at 8:30pm will be allowed to dance with their partner (should they desire to do so).
7:00 – 8:15 pm: Cruces, Cortados & Media Lunas (adv.beginner/intermediate)
These are the most important elements for social dancing. We will explore the technique for lead and follow, as well as the possibilities of combining these elements to interpret the music, follow the line of dance and maintain the flow on the social dance floor.
8:30 – 9:45 pm: Batidos & Boleos (intermediate/advanced)
Batidos are very pretty moves done by the follower that involve (like boleos) pivoting left and right with the follower’s feet together or crossed. Batido in Spanish means something whipped or mixed. The move can be led or done as an adornment. As they don’t take space they are perfect for social dancing. Boleos involve bigger pivots and are often done with a lifted leg. We will focus on the technique for leading and following both of these movements, their aesthetics, and combinations.
Location: MIT Building 36, Room 156 (50 Vassar St., Cambridge, MA)
Admission for one series/both series: MIT students $50/$90, other students $60/$110, general $80/$150. Admission for MIT spouses adjusted to the status of the spouse.
