Course for anyone! Absolutely zero prior dance experience necessary! In the first section, we will briefly introduce the history, poetry, and contemporary significance of Argentine tango as a global dance. Then, we will teach a fun crash course on the basics of dancing Argentine tango—from posture, walking to the cross, left check-steps, the ‘box,’ right-turns, ochos, and a few elegant embellishments! Afterwards, we will host an informal práctica where everyone will get the chance to practice and have fun cabeceo-ing, meeting, and dancing with fellow Reedies :) Make sure to wear comfortable clothing, socks, and a face mask! Please DO NOT attend this class if you have any potential COVID-19 symptoms or exposure whatsoever, for the safety of our community and so we can all keep on dancing! Led by Maya Star-Lack, Christopher Barclay, and Ethan Gregor.
