INTERMEDIATE: Acquiring the basic elements of the tango we move to perfectionate techniques and styles, the closed and open embrace and various styles (Apilado, Salon, Milonguero, Nuevo) approaching also other branches of the tango as Milonga and Vals. During this course, we start to redefine the typology of man and woman body motion. Study of the musical elements and the various possibility of balance; search for elegance and naturalness of movements. This course is also useful for those who want to solve the accumulated technical deficiencies in other forms of teaching tango even for those who have studied for several years.

  • Quality of movement (walking, moving the center of gravity, leading focus III, scroll)
