Denver Intermediate Tango Classes

Milonguero Style Tango:
The romantic close version of tango typical of Buenos Aires milongas

Wednesdays, Starting Sept 15, 7:30 – 9:30
Denver Turnverein, 1570 N Clarkson
$20/week for 2 hours. $65 four weeks.

We will focus on three main characteristics of milonguero style tango:

  • Close Embrace & Close Connection
  • Musical Expression & Rhythmic Drive
  • Navigation & Floorcraft for Crowded Dance Floors

Steps and vocabulary will be simple, consisting of pieces of musical phrases rather than longer sequences.

When I first went to Argentina in 1998, I thought I knew something about tango. I quickly learned that while I knew a lot of steps, I knew nothing about the underlying feel and essence of tango. In the years since, I've dedicated myself to learning tango “as danced socially in Buenos Aires”.
