Group classes are designed for those who wish to learn the dance in a non-competitive and friendly group environment. Each class is about expressing the personality and story through body movements along with proper techniques, and of course, beautiful tango music. Together we instill confidence in one another through the group dynamic exercises as we build on relationships with ourselves to the music and to our dance partners. Group classes are also a great way to try the same sequences with different people and in the process become even more self-aware of body movement and check if you are leading/following correctly.
There is no need to be afraid to make mistakes because tango is the improvisational dance without strict patterns like in other partner dances such as rumba, waltz or foxtrot. Each movement in tango could become solely your creation as long as it doesn't hurt the body and make you or your partner uncomfortable. Of course, there are basic steps and essential techniques that each serious dancer needs in order to truly enjoy the dance and create new sequences.
Lastly, group classes are about having fun, meeting new people, and experiencing dance together.
Currently I am teaching group classes for all levels every Monday and Thursday at 8pm at Atlantic Ballroom Dance Studio on Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn! Call the studio for more info (718) 332-3272.
