2018 Lessons Format: 6:30pm - 7:30pm Class 1 (Ladies Learning to Lead)
This class is for ladies who want to learn to lead. There has been a request for this class and so we are pleased to present it.
Learning your partner’s role in Tango gives you added understanding and
depth to your own Tango. Besides, if you can lead you don’t have to wait
to be asked to dance – ‘winky face’ 7:30pm - 8:30pm Class 2 (Beginners Group Class)
In this class we will introduce those new to Tango to the history and
fundamentals of Tango, lead and follow. The goal is to get new friends
dancing confidently – as quickly as possible – so they will feel
comfortable joining us at Milongas.
It’s always nice to dance with new people. So, invite your friends to
come learn Tango with us. Let’s make 2018 a bumper year of growth for
our community. 8:30pm - 9:30pm Class 3 (Tango Figures Class) "
Figures are made up of combinations of steps or movements.
In this class we want to examine the steps and movements that make up
our figures; we want to deconstruct and reconstruct our figures; develop
the comfort and ease of movement that makes our figures magical to
dance; and we want create new and exciting figures of our own.
All are welcome on this class but it is highly recommended that you know
most common figures like: the Basic8, giros, ganchos, etc.
The idea is to have our ‘Ladies Learning to Lead’ class first. If we
have beginner Ladies with no partners for the Second Class, Ladies
Learning to Lead can partner & practice Leading.
If we have Single Ladies or Men on this class then the Ladies from Class 1 can help in Class 2.
Class 3 is for more advanced students… where we do Tango Figures. Ladies
Learning to Lead can once again partner Single Men - or maybe as
Leaders if they are confident enough.
We want to give our ladies more opportunities to take lessons; and more opportunities to dance at Milongas.
Thursday 18thJanuary: a Meet & Greet Session/Lesson
On the Meet & Greet Night (18th Jan), all 3 the lessons will be for Free. This we be the start of our classes. Classes will be Thursdays from 18:30 to 21:30.
It takes two to tango and, for singles, finding a committed Tango partner to do classes with is not always easy.
The Meet and Greet Session/Lesson is:
to introduce the Tango Gold Card;
to give an overview of the course work; And: so that people can meet each other to form Tango partnerships. Partners can share lessons and Gold Cards.
With this we hope that all the singles looking for Tango lesson partners will take full advantage of this evening.
Join us! Come meet new people… and find your Tango lesson partner
The Tango Gold Card
The Gold Card is R1000 per couple. Each time the couple attends a
lesson; a corner gets clipped off. This way you only pay for the lessons
you attend. Once all 4 corners are gone – you will need to buy a new
The Gold Cards can be gifted to friends, or one could gift just a corner
of your card, and let a couple of friends join you on a class – in case
they want to give Tango a try, before they buy their own Gold Card.
If you join us on Thursday the 18th
for our Meet and Greet Session/Lesson and purchase your Tango Gold Card
on the night, we will give you 20% discount on the price of the Tango
You can also plan in advance and purchase as many cards as you feel you
will need. We are not limiting the number of cards you may purchase.
This is the plan for 2018 so far. We trust you will join us and enjoy a grand year in Tango.
