PE 160 Argentine Tango

An introduction to the beautiful dance of Argentine Tango, known to be a dance of passion and grace. Argentine tango is a highly individualistic and improvisational dance, with endless possibilities for expressing the music. A true social dance, based on the art of leading and following, students will find it to be ever exciting, challenging and fun. In this class students will explore both the close embrace and open embrace, "Milonguero" and "Salon" styles and movements of tango. Music education will include a wide variety of traditional classical tango orchestras as well as popular alternative tango music. Variations of movement and the depth of emotion and expression will be explored in traditional tango, fast paced playful Milonga, and the elegant Vals. Tango is a dance of present moment connection and zen, highly addictive, and a worthwhile adventure
