Argentinian tango class at Urdang Covent Garden

The class I teach again. Argentinian Tango is starting to grow in London. Especially now that some venues have begun to play more modern Tango. There were venues stuck in a time warp only playing music from the 1940's and 1950's. This was to miss out on the wonderfully emotional tango's of Astor Piazzolla. And now lots of new modern tango's from groups like Gotan project. There was an attitude that "we do only real tango" A very limited definition of what is real. The Freudians and post freudians would have a field day with that, especially the lacanians.
i do dislike some of the very limiting attitudes. there are patterns you need to know with Tango to communicate on the dancefloor. After that just enjoy yourself.
