Tango Collab Wellington

Saturday 29 April: Matthew Civil 

1:30 Fundamentals: The Basic Techniques of Tango. Essentials for all.

2:30 Open: Simple Steps to change your habits. We will practice some simple sequences to break habits and leave us more present in the dance and able to express the music within the space we have.

3:30 Int/Adv: Circular contra boleos backward and forward, left and right, but just for the follower. This is inspired by Cecilia Gonzalez' 4 day course in Nelson.

4:30 to 7:00 PM The Saturday Práctica run this week by Matthew. Post práctica everyone will quickey transform into their most "dress for sucess" clothes to attend Emilio and the Bravo Ensemble's Una Noche - Gran Milonga with live music and Peter DJing. This is simply not to be missed! And will be a suitable spectacle for your non-tango-dancing friends to come to as well. So who can you invite?
