Pre-requisite: Advanced Beginner Series
No partner required!

In this 7 week series, our instructors will emphasize the social dancing in open embrace prioritizing your partner, music, and the people around you.

Several steps taught in the close embrace levels (beginner and advanced beginner) will be expanded in addition to new steps. It's highly recommended that one take the close embrace classes before taking this class.

You are encouraged to stay after the lesson and dance with others during the practica (typically from 9:30pm-11:30pm), since that is what you will be doing in a social dance setting anyway. 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. Also dancing with more people will help improve your dancing much faster than dancing with the same person.
