   IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO

 Do you have a partner and would like semi-private tuition together? 

Regular tuition and practice are the keys to confident dancing.  Couples often get so used to dancing with each other that they compensate for the mistakes the other partner makes.  This results in difficulties when dancing with others, and leaves them at a loss as to how to ‘fix’ the problem.

Regular tuition can help you overcome those entrenched habits and get you dancing together (and with others) competently and confidently
 

Would you like to be able to practice your tango with a regular partner?

Many people would like to improve their tango with a regular partner, gaining certainty in their moves in order to feel confident when asking others to dance.  If you are one of these, ask someone you get on with if they would like to partner you.  You will never know if you don’t ask!

Wendy and Joe welcome both novice and more experienced pairs.  Partner up with someone around the same level as you and come along.

Cost is $10 each week and you are encouraged to practice what you have learned at the Milonga Roja at no additional cost.  

Thursday 21 September:

"Playing with the Milonga Rythm"

A Course for All Levels Do you want to improve your Milonga skills? Learn Milonga from scratch?

Well here is your chance.

George is running "Playing with the Milonga Rythm" an 8 week course starting this Thursday 10 August starting at 8.45pm. George ran this course last year and unfortunately there were some who missed out because they were away or didn't learn about the course until later. So here is your opportunity.

The course is suitable for all levels and will be multi-layered to provide the more basic elements for beginners and extend the more experienced. This course will explore what steps can be used and when. The course will cover Milonga liso, double time, quadruple time, traspie, half time and more. Milonga is a cheeky Rhythm, it's lots of fun and there is lots to play with within the Rhythm. There are more than 30 steps or sequences that can be incorporated into milonga. As well as knowing the steps/sequences, the most important thing is to know where to fit them in the music!

To dance really well you need to know the music! If you are thinking of joining the class start listening to Milongadel 900, Milonga Sentimental & Milonga Mis Amores- all by Francisco Canaro. If you don't have copies of these contact George - george.3dwards@gmail.com

So come along, join up, enjoy and extend yourselves. Please come a little early at 8.15pm on Thursday so we can get the registration and payments out of the way before the lesson starts.

Please bring cash to pay for the fees as we do not have card facilities. The 8 week course fee is $60 plus a Club membership fee of $20 if you are not a member.
