Beginners Course in Melville

Tango Class at the Dance Cafe with Bert and Lerato 

Hi Tango Lovers and Friends
Lerato and I continue into October with our Monday night class at The Dance Café in Rivonia.

We have been working on some detailed techniques to make
  the communication and the comfort of our Tango more clear and enjoyable.

We analyse how we step - paying attention to weight placement and timing.
Using easy figures – we apply our analysis to these and find ways to improve movements
  like sacadas, barridas, ganchos…

In October we will take a closer look at the ladies legs: the standing leg and the free leg.
Each has nature, behaviour and function.

As ladies we want to move our legs in smarter, more efficient ways
  that are elegant, beautiful and secure.

As Men we need to develop a sensitivity and understanding of how
  our ladies move their legs… how, when and why they step, wrap or hook.
In this cycle we want to play with the ideas we have about the lady’s legs
  and see where these lead us on our journey through Tango.

Our class is intimate and we try to work on the individual difficulties we each experience.
Encouraging each other to give feedback: we have created a fun group of dancers
  all working together to improve and have fun with our Tango.

The class happens on Monday nights at 8pm to 9pm at The Dance Café in Rivonia.
The cost is R500 per person for the 5 Monday nights in October (2nd; 9th; 16th; 23rd; 30th)
If you would like to join our class or would like further information, please contact us at this email address:

Hope to see you on the dance floor soon.
