Tango Workshops

Occasionally Tango Fantástico hosts visiting Argentine stage celebrities, professional teachers and dancers for workshops and private classes.  Tango workshops usually designate an accomplishment level as the format of a workshop requires that students be able to comprehend verbal directions regarding position, movement and the partnership dynamics with a certain degree of proficiency.  Students who are properly qualified in a proficiency category will not detain the other students from advancing. 

Come join in the fun with authentic inspiration straight from Argentina - But come prepared, workshops are more intense and focused than regular weekly classes.  Professional teachers expect students to be motivated to experiment, work hard, and ask relevant questions. 

Remember, Argentine teachers may not be fluent in English and probably speak with an accent.

When we host visitors we will always provide some background information about their dancing careers.

Argentine Tango FUNdamentals in Sautee

Winter Season Argentine Tango Series

Suitable for novices and refreshers

sil1transFUNdamentals

Traditional Argentine Tango is improvised, never planned or choreographed.  Creating an improvised dance is not as easy as it might sound.  Acquiring the skills to lead or follow a partner is the key ingredient.  Heighten your senses, deepen your connection, acquiesce to the dance and let the music guide you.

In this series the focus will be developing connection through intention and invitation.  Exploring linear movement, circular movement, simple sequences and transitions and learning the Spanish names for simple tango moves.

Dancers rotate throughout the class to hone these fledgling skills with a variety of partners and circumstances.  A selection of partners makes tango interesting, fun and challenging and the social tango network emerges organically out of desire to experience new connections.

Holiday Workshops - Sautee Nacoochee, GA

Holiday Workshops in Sautee Nacoochee

Suitable for novices and refreshers

Building a Dependable Foundation

Acquiring skills takes time, effort and focus but in order to progress the foundational elements need to become second nature.  The Holiday workshops will address axis, balance, intention and acquiescence.  In Argentine Tango we move in all directions and we can start on either foot, as determined by the leader.  We share the floor, following line of dance, extending common courtesies and utilizing our skills of the dance.  The dance develops through connection, communication and sensitivity to one's partner.  Through attention to precision the movement becomes fluid and the dancers feel the private reward of unified expression.
