Tango Classes, Beginner 1 and Beginner 2


For the months of September and October Dan Feldman and Sabine Sladek will conduct a special 8 week progressive basic tango series at the Arts Society of Kingston on Tuesday nights. This series is designed to bring new dancers from simple walking, all the way to dancing in a lovely connected embrace with smooth and elegant turns. You will be ready to go out and dance at a social level at one of the many local milongas. For experienced dancers here is an excellent opportunity to refine these fundamentals of traditional Argentine tango.


Immediately following the basic class will be an intermediate level class. Here we will continue to refine the quality of connected movement, discover leader and follower embellishment, explore the nuances of musicality in Tango, Vals and Milonga, as well as introduce elements, such as ganchos, boleos and sacadas.
