The Philadelphia Argentine Tango School's weekly advanced class helps students take the basic elements of tango - walking, pivots, ochos, sacadas, boleos, ganchos, paradas, etc. - and learn to combine them in more complex ways. Persistent themes include: technique for lead-and-follow improvisation; musicality at the level of the beat, the phrase and the whole tango, vals or milonga; and developing an understanding tango structure so that dancers may create their own sequences and improvise fluidly.

Cost: $25 or use you class card

The class is followed by the D'Arienzo TC Practica with awesome guest DJs, refreshments and fun. Practica: 9 pm-midnight (included in the cost of the class)

Don't miss Elkin Guerra Najar (Colombia) who will be in Philadelphia from August 23 to August 27.  This will be his only time teaching our advanced class during this micro-residency.  Class topic 8/23 with Elkin Guerra Najar: Improvisation ideas for crowded spaces.  Circular movements for the dance floor.
