Beginners Course in Melville

Tango Class at the Dance Cafe with Bert and Lerato 

Hi Tango Lovers and Friends,

Lerato and I continue with our Monday night classes into November.
Last month we studied the nature, behavior, and movements of our ladies legs…
In order to get a better understanding of the potentials we have in our Dance
to work with them.

Through November we want to continue with this study… but this time
from the man’s point of view.
Now that we know how our ladies’ legs move and react,
we need to understand the leads that most efficiently and comfortably
Communicate our intensions to our ladies in order to invite their legs
to dance so elegantly with us.

The class will continue on Mondays from 8pm to 9 pm at the Dance Café.
(Mondays the 8th , 14th, 21st and 28th of November)
The price remains R500 per person for the month of Mondays.
We do however request that those joining us for this class
please bring a pair of rugby or football socks to dance in
as we plan to do our exercises and figures in socks
to bring new dimensions and inputs to our Tango.

We hope to see you on the dance floor soon

Bert and Lerato

*PS. The class is aimed at more experienced dancers, however if you’re a beginner and interested
in learning, please drop us an email and we can arrange a class for beginners.
