Home >> Our Classes & Events >> Atlanta: Monday Tango Class & Practica

We teach simple, elegant, musical and playful ideas to be used on the social dance floor from Atlanta to Buenos Aires.

You do not need a partner to take our classes. We switch partners during the class and make sure that everyone gets plenty of dance time.

This class focuses on intermediate and advanced topics, so you should have a firm understanding of cross vs parallel system, giros, ochos, and cruzadas.

Every Monday Evening
8:00pm to 9:30pmInt/Adv Class

$15 for Class

Daza

Atlanta, GA 30305

What to Wear
There is no dress code. Dress casually in clothes that allow you to move easily. We recommend wearing shoes that hold comfortably to your feet. We do not recommend flip flops or shoes with thick soles. You need to be able to feel the floor and to easily pivot without your feet slipping in your shoes. 

 What to Expect in our Classes

We teach simple, elegant, musical and playful ideas to be used on the social dance floor from Atlanta to Buenos Aires.

We demonstrate and teach the moves in both open and close embraces and YOU are free to choose which embrace you use during class.

We listen and practice to Golden Age Tango Music during our classes, with the only exceptions being specific exercises or a class which is advertised as dealing with a specific sub-set of tango.

We spend a significant amount of time in each class dealing with Men's AND Women's techniques, as well as musicality.

WE DO NOT TEACH COMPLEX PATTERNS. Anytime you string 2 steps together you have created a pattern, but we do not teach complicated multi-step patterns. The figures we do teach are classic and used regularly on the social floor.

Everything we teach takes 'line-of-dance' and floorcraft into consideration.

We try to give plenty of personal attention. We usually let students dance 2 or 3 songs between group instruction so that we can go around and give more personal attention and allow people to practice what is being taught.

Our classes are appropriate for everyone from advanced beginners to very advanced dancers. We try and give something for everyone. If you came and did not get something very valuable out of our class, I would be very surprised.
