Get ready for PART 2 of our 2 intensive Argentine Tango weekends with Canadian Champions Bryant & Faye Lopez and Tango Maestros Hernan Alvarez Prieto & Silvana Dortone from Buenos Aires!

The first one was a hit and we saw incredible progress from all of you that attended. There is something to be said about intensive training... it pays off!

The final weekend will help propulse you forward as we dive into the fundamental elements of traditional tango and those that give you most comfort and confidence in the dance:

The embrace, Figures & Musicality.

Why dance Argentine Tango?

IT'S COOL

Tango is no longer referred to as the dance your grandparents used to do. Now everyone dances tango and in every little corner of the world. You don’t have to have a specific age or any special talent. All you need is to have an open mind to learn.

IT’S UNIQUE

Tango is different than any other dance by the simple fact that it is danced in an embrace rather than a frame. And this is what makes it feel totally different. It is based on walking to the music and simple figures you improvise as you go. You have to try it for yourself to feel it.

EXPRESS YOURSELF

Because it is entirely improvised, tango forces you to discover new ways of expressing yourself through the music. You will have to use the creative side of your brain.

A CHALLENGE

The most common thing you hear when people take their first class is “ this is hard”! Tango is simple but that doesn’t mean it’s not hard. But who doesn’t like a challenge?! In tango there is always more to learn. Not only do you have to study all the orchestras to be able to interpret the music but there are endless figures and walking techniques to discover.

ALIGN YOUR BODY

Because the dance is based on the walk, the first thing you should learn is how to have proper posture. This is the best thing you can do for your body. Aligning your body helps you create personal confidence, it will make you feel more energized and avoid injuring your body as you age.

THE MUSIC

Many people that dance tango started because they fell in love with the music.  The repertoire is vast and there are many orchestras, musicians and singers to discover. If you don't like the music, you will know it's not for you.

DISCOVER A NEW CULTURE

Argentine Tango gives you the opportunity discover a new culture by the fact that it is a street dance born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It has its own codes and traditions. It is a great way to immerse yourself in the Argentine culture and maybe even learn a new language.

MEET NEW PEOPLE

You can find Argentine Tango in every corner of the world now.  And typically you can find a social where people gather weekly to dance, meet new people and socialize.

IT'S GOOD FOR YOUR BRAIN

Many studies have proved that dancing tango help sharpen your aging brain. Argentine Tango helps you focus on the present and the task at hand therefor improving your mindfulness.  Tango could also have potential benefits for people at certain stages in the development of Parkinson’s disease.

IT’S A GOOD WORKOUT

The gym is not for everyone…. Argentine Tango is good for your cardiovascular health. It might just be the thing that hooks you and gets you off the couch a few times a week!

IT HEALS YOUR SOUL

Connecting to other people forces us to partake in relationships by exercising our will, mind and emotions. When we choose to engage in partnership through tango, though we have been let down in the past, a healing process begins. The feeling of letting go is something we all need to experience on a regular basis. Take your first step... on the dance floor.

IT’S RISKY

It forces you do dance in front of people and with partners that you might have never met before. Letting someone new embrace you helps you build trust. Human relationships are what enrich our lives.

I could name many mores reasons but I think these are enough to get you to try a class. Who knows, it might even change your life...

Abrazos,

Faye AKA Muñeca Brava
