Beginning Argentine Tango | Beginning Argentine Tango SPT & REC 292 lec 109

Argentine Tango is both a musical gene and an improvised couples dance. In 2009 UNESCO declared it part of the world’s heritage. Tango originated in Argentina and Uruguay but has since grown to become an international art form that bridges age, class and language.
Like Jazz, Tango continues to grow being influenced by other musical styles. In this class we will explore the three subgenres of the music, Tango, Milonga and Waltz.
The dance is based on technique as opposed to steps or patterns. These techniques form a language of movement. They promote a consciousness of body and mind as well as sensitivity to one’s partner. We will cover the fundamentals of the embrace, connection, posture, walking and musicality.
Classes are held on Mondays from 4:30-6:20 at the Kenwood United Methodist Church across form the UWM Union.
The class is SPT & REC 292, Lecture 109.
