Argentinian Tango 1: Basics, 1 ECTS

Dates and times: 24.7.-9.8.2023 Mon–Wed, 18:30–20:30

Content and objectives: In Argentinian tango dancing, a couple joins in an embrace to move together interpreting the music. Inside the couple there are two distinctive roles, a leader (usually – but not exclusively – a man) and a follower (usually – but not exclusively – a woman). In this course, we approach Argentinian Tango as a social dance. During each lesson we provide individual and group feedback. No previous experience in dancing is required. We recommend signing up with a couple. You can also sign up by yourself, but we do not ensure role balance. If the course is unbalanced, we may change roles during the lessons. At the end of the course, if possible, we organize a ”field trip” to a Milonga (Argentinian Tango Party).

Credits: 1 ECTS given by Taideyliopiston Sibelius-Akatemia S-Y27 (Sibelius Academy, University of the Arts Helsinki). Students must attend approx. 80 % of classes.
