Ivan Terrazas & Sara Grdan workshop weekend

As instructors, Sara & Ivan have developed a modern systemic approach to teaching traditional tango. Their goal as teachers is to instill strong fundamentals by emphasizing technique, analytical thinking, logic, naturalness and comfort in both the close and open embrace. We are excited to have them in LA for an intensive 2 day workshop series on October 22-23 (Sat/Sun).

John Hernan Raigoza & Yaisuri Salamanca Workshops

March 4-5, 2017

We're so excited to have John & Yaisuri back in LA this coming week!  When we first saw John and Yaisuri perform we were amazed. Not only did they have the speed, precision and ‘wow’ factor of the top stage dancers in the world but they also had the comfort, creativity and connection present in the best social dancers.

We were able to work with them last year and loved their approach to tango, their knowledge and their generosity.  This year we are lucky to have them for a week; don’t miss out on your opportunity to see them dance or learn from them.

2 Day Beginner Bootcamp

beginner level

 

Something about this 19th-century immigrant dance seems to flip people's worlds upside-down; the beauty of improvising one of the world’s most complex dances with another human being is a beautiful and extraordinary experience that has earned its reputation for being notoriously addictive.

Tango 101 Intensive Workshop:

In this workshop you will learn the essentials to get started leading, following and connecting to the music and your partner. It's a summary of the first 2 months of the Tango 100 curriculum for anyone who's never danced Tango before, but also for the experienced Tango dancer to go back and clean up their basics. See details below!

Friday Feb 24

workshop I (3 hours)

8-11pm Studying “La Salida Basica”, or “The Basic Exit”, which is the first of several classic figures designed over decades to develop strong skills in the dance. We'll also introduce a few of the most common steps used on the social dance floor.

Saturday Feb 25

workshop II (3 hours)

2-5pm More physical drilling of the basic tango movements, followed by an exploration of the second classic figure, “El Ocho”, or forward ochos from the cross. The last part of class focuses on the most useful Milonguero variations based on the inherent rhythm in the ocho cortado.

FAQ:

DO I NEED PREVIOUS DANCE EXPERIENCE?

No!

DO I NEED A PARTNER?

No! During class we encourage everyone to rotate partners to get the most out of the lesson, but if you feel strongly that you’d rather dance with one partner, that's ok too.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Please wear comfortable clothes that allows you to move your legs freely. No pencil skirts or super skinny jeans!

COMFORTABLE SHOES FOR DANCING?

Leather soles please! For ladies, a low-heeled comfortable shoe with a closed toe. For guys, dress shoes/loafers, on the narrow side. You can also get by in sneakers like Puma, Converse or Tom's shoes. If you have no suitable shoes, socks will do just fine!

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

Water & breath mints - the latter, a Tango dancer necessity! But don’t worry, we usually have some on hand in case you forget :)
