This program is designed for anyone who wants to start their first steps in Tango. It is designed for the student to go slowly entering the dance, breaking cultural and personal barriers that may separate one from the development of the dance. In this month and a half you will work with the communication of the body and the relationship with your dance partner, the awareness of the music and space. There will be an emphasis on posture and embrace, which are essential for synchronization in the dance.
