Mondays 17.30 - 19.00

In this course we learn Argentine Tango as a social dance. We learn how to lead and follow specific combinations with a focus on technique, connection and musicality. There is no need to come with a partner (we do not ensure role balance) or to have previous experience in dancing.
Come and spend a different weekend with us at the cozy atmosphere of Sähinä cultural centre, just 10 minutes walking distance from Lauttasaari metro Station.
In this course, we will learn the basics of Argentine Tango. We will focus on learning how to communicate with our partner with our bodies and how to move together. We will learn to walk together as well as some basic patterns such as, rebounds, back ocho, sandwich, and the basic salida.
