Argentine Tango is a walking dance, defined as "One body with four legs," or a "Sad thought that can be danced." More precisely, it is a language, means of communication between lead and follower. Having started in Montevideo and Buenos Aires towards the end of the 19th century, it grew to a culture practiced in Milongas: Tango dance parties, in most major cities.
Objectives: Study how two people can move together as one unit in a harmonious way, attentive to each other, together with the music: an amazingly satisfying activity. Develop techniques to facilitate communication: axis, contact, walking, as well as basic building blocks of movement such as ochos, crusadas, ganchos. Learn main music forms: Tango, Vals, Milonga.
Requirements: None. Argentine Tango is a social activity. Students would have the opportunity to join a few Saturday night Milongas on Campus to practice and improve. Argentine Tango has objectives far from those of other social dances, so prior experience in other social dance forms is not needed. In any case, we start from scratch. Need no partner, roles be changed. Leather soled shoes help.
