Instructors: Michael Wizer, Julie Barnett and Brandon Craig
In-person at VPC Campus


Learn the basics of Argentine tango as it is danced in Buenos Aires. In this class you will learn the embrace, the walk, the foundational figures of tango, how to navigate the social dance floor, as well as the codes of the dance. You will also learn about the traditional music of Argentine tango: the beat, the instruments, and the great orchestras. And for our last class we will create a milonga (the place where dancers dance) that emulates what you would find if you went out dancing in Buenos Aires.
