Intro to Close Embrace Argentine Tango

Room: 1359 Mason Hall

Pre-requisite: NONE!

Cost for entire 8 lesson series: see membership page

In this 8 week series, our instructors will be teaching the fundamentals of tango with an emphasis on rhythm, musicality and especially the connection between the leader and the follower.

Beginners are encouraged to stay after the lesson and dance with the intermediate and advanced dancers during the practica (typically from 9:30-11:30pm). Practica has a more informal and less intimidating atmosphere than the milonga. This is a good opportunity to work on your dance skills and get/give help from/to others. Dancing with more people will help improve your dancing much faster than dancing with the same person.

Please see the schedule for the latest information on lessons and other events. If you have questions or comments, please send email to umtango@umich.edu.
