Classes

Effective January 18, 2016, Tango House of Madison will be offering four hours of classes per week.  Two one hour classes will be taught on Monday and Wednesday evenings.

The first class of the evening, Fundamentals of Argentine Tango, begins at 7:30 pm and ends at 8:30 pm.  This class focuses on teaching foundation technique and vocabulary.  This class is designed for people who are new to the dance or wish to refine their technique in a structured setting.  As this class is for people who are newer to the dance, time will be spent explaining the details of the technique.

A typical Monday class schedule might look like this.

7:30 – 7:50 pm  Solo technique (balance, projections, and/or pivots)
7:50 – 8:10 pm  Partner technique (high detail walking and fundamental vocabulary)
8:10 – 8:30 pm  Fundamental vocabulary (from the pedagogy)

A typical Wednesday class schedule might look like this.

7:30 – 7:50 pm  Solo technique (balance, projections, and/or pivots)
7:50 – 8:10 pm  Partner technique and fundamental vocabulary
8:10 – 8:30 pm  Musicality

 

The second hour, 8:30 – 9:30 pm, is for the Refining Fundamentals and Exploring Vocabulary, this title may be shortened to Cool Moves, is for people who are familiar with the Tango House of Madison biomechanical model of communication in the dance.  While anyone is welcome to join the class, much less time will be spent on explanations of fundamental technique.  Instead, a more rigorous repetition based approach to refinement will be taken.
