Social Tango Classes

Exception – Tango PRACTICA is a drop-in AND absolute beginners can come for the first practica (with zero experience) for a FREE try.

Tango Workshops in the FUNdamentals

As Tango Butterfly is still reasonably new in the Northern Rivers, we wanted to get the community up and active smoothly and securely with half-day Tango Workshops in the FUNdamentals of Social Tango.

Called Tango FUN – the idea is to start with I, and progress then through to II, III, IV and V

All of these cater to those desiring to learn the CORE language of Tango.

In my experience, those that take the time to respect and focus on the CORE fundamentals of social Tango, can easily stylise and personalise their Tango while still ensuring connection JOY with anyone of any level or Tango style.

Tango FUN I covers the absolute FUNdamentals of Social Tango:
walk, embrace, posture, connection, direction changes and ochos, plus play.

You will be able to dance Tango socially and attend practicas after attending this workshop.

Once the FUNdamentals are understood, the dance can be creatively deepened in its practice. It can be shared with family, friends, lovers, sisters, brothers AND even strangers.

Wednesdays in Mur'bah JUNE 2022 BannerTango Improvers classes & practica
~ Wednesdays, 7-9:30PM
NEXT: 10 August, 24 August, 7 Sept, 14 Sept

These classes are NOT for the absolute beginner.  Some Social Tango experience will be required for the class at 7PM. Beginners are welcome, however, to join us at the practica afterwards from 8PM.

It is for dancers of any level to participate in a class with an emphasis on social tango skills, techniques and (most importantly) creative play!

We may work with fundamental structures, such as ochos, cross & giros, both in and out of a close embrace, and deepen these techniques to create other things … like sacada, gancho, parada, enganchadas, combos etc …

Attendance at this class includes the practica afterwards (8PM onwards).  So you can hang, chill, chat, have some snacks and experiment with your Tango here.

Bookings for the class is required, but you can just show up to practica.
