End of Class Demo
We're missing a lot in lockdown and one of them is our end-of-class demo.
But we have so many videos from past demos, we thought: why not post one once a week! Especially as the vast majority have never been posted on our blog.
And David and I will also keep posting videos of us dancing in lockdown with tips and inspiration on how to keep your tango alive!

Followers' Technique Workshop
And last Saturday, the focus turned to the follower, with our Followers' Technique Workshop.
Your teacher was thrilled to spend two hours exploring her favourite topic with such an amazing group of ladies (and gentleman!)

About Last Night
Missed last night's class? Here is a short clip of our end-of-class improvisation, demonstrating the movements explored.
The class was centred on calesitas (carousels), with different variations and creative decorations for the follower. Level: intermediate.

Tuesday Night Class
Here is a little clip of the step we studied last Tuesday night in our Intermediate Drop-in Class.
The class focused on how to create a more circular turn and finish with an unusual cross for the follower!

Intermediate Tango Class Review
A video of our improvised demonstration at the end of our Intermediate Tango Class on Tuesday 5 September.
As always, the focus of the class was not to memorise the sequence but to understand how to lead each element of the sequence and play around with them creatively.
Tuesday’s class involved leading the follower lovely series of movements down the leader’s right hand side finishing with the lead of the front boleo. A step that feels as beautiful as it looks!
We worked with the followers to help them release their free leg to create more dynamic boleos and gave them a few ideas for decorations. Creativity in tango is not solely the territory of the leader!
This video clip features the step sequence several times (can you spot it?) but shows how it can be slotted into other tango movements too. As always the music is a top priority!
Any questions about this step or any other tango matter, just let us know in class!

Mini-Clip of Our Tango Class
A mini-clip of our improvised tango at the end of our Intermediate Drop-in Class last Tuesday, illustrating our step of the week.
It always feels amazing when David leads this step so I was excited to share it with you.
When you watch this video you’ll see the series of steps taught, but what you won’t necessarily see are the tiny details that go into making this step look - and just as importantly feel - a million dollars! Those are secrets for those who come to our lessons!
No step looks or feels good without a solid bedrock of technique. And so the first part of the class was spent working with our students to understand how to initiate and execute the movements.
We hope you enjoy this clip. Any questions, just let us know in class!
Newcomers are always more than welcome. Check out our Weekly Class Schedule for the right level for you.
