We have a special treat in store for May in that we shall be having  Vals  classes for two weeks and Argentine Tango classes for the remaining three weeks. Our intent is to break it up and make it more interesting, diverse and fun.

Vals  is a beautiful dance and always fills the dance floor when played at a milonga. It can be danced slowly. It can be danced in a fun peppy way. It has a 3/4 beat which makes it different from tango and milonga and therefore is danced in it’s own special way.

Argentine tango of course is always a work in progress. The more you learn the more interesting it becomes and the more you find to want to learn. Learn to be creative in this series. We give you the foundation on which you can build.

Join us for a month of weekly instruction followed by the milonga which is included in the price.

We put a special effort into providing a follower/leader balanced class, so please register ahead of time so that we can accommodate everyone.

Apart from the movements themselves which are unique in their own right,  we concentrate more on how to attain that level of competence on the dance floor. We give you an understanding of working with your own axis and your partners axis. Both for followers and leaders. This alone will improve your connected balance and enable you to move elegantly on the social dance floor allowing you to concentrate on and enjoy the music.

Come see what it is all about. You will not be disappointed.

Let me know if I should save a spot for you.  I will need a firm commitment from at least 8 women to run this class.  You can pay at the class or prepay directly to me.   I hope you’ll join me!
