Tango Waltz

Would you like to improve your Tango Vals skills?

Following on from the "Playing with the Milonga Rhythm" course last term a new course - "Vals Rhythm" started on  Thursday night the 12 October.
You can still join on Thursday 19 October at 7.30pm.
The course is suitable for all levels and will be mullti-layered to provide the more basic elements to beginners and extend the more experienced.

The Vals is a rhythm that is well suited to turns and pivots and we will revising those you know and add others. In addition we will also be exploring what steps from tango can be used in Vals and where, and how to adapt them to suit a the 3/4 Vals Rhythm.

Vals is great fun and the music extends from the more sensitive and delicate slower numbers like " Desde el Alma by Puglese" to the beautiful wonderfully exciting and fast "Cortando Camino by Di Sarli" to the Viennese like "Etincelles by Canaro" and Ballet like "Tres Jolle also by Canaro " . They all easily transport and carry you away to another world as you dance.

To dance really well you need to know the music! If you are thinking of joining the class start listening to above Vals tracks. Send George an email at george.3dwards@gmail.com and he will send you copies of these tracks plus some Youtube links to great Tango Vals videos.

So come along, join up and extend yourselves. On Thursday please arrive at 8.15pm for registration and bring cash to pay the fees as we do not have card facilities.

Come to the club at 8:15 to enrol and prepare for the 8:30 - 9:30 class.

Cost: Each course is $60 for the 8 weeks payable at the beginning of the Course.
