Classes and Practica at The Factory on Grant Hi All,
We start a new cycle of lessons, for experienced couples, looking to advance their tango knowledge and skill.
As usual the cycle is for the month of Thursdays through July – R800 per couple for 4 Thursday…
and as there is 5 Thursdays this month, you get the 5th lesson free. (First Thursday – 6th July)
In this cycle we will look at the “Giro” from a new perspective
bringing in “quadrant work” that leads to understanding of “Secadas”,
and other interesting foot workings for both the man and the woman.
Class starts at 7:30pm at The Factory on Grant, Norwood, and ends at 8:30pm
Dancers are welcome to arrive early to practise and stay after
the class – to practise - as we allow this time for “Practica” at no extra cost – to all.
