This series of twice monthly Saturday workshops will run throughout 2012.
Every month there will be a theme, so by the end of the month you should feel that
you have reached a new level so far as the subject is concerned. Themes for the
year include: musicality, sacadas and back sacadas, giros and enrosques, volcadas,
colgadas, milonga and vals, voleos and ganchos, close embrace, nuevo etc.
There will always be general technique exercises to do – which you should aim to
perfect during the year – and then specific exercises concerning the monthly subject.
Women’s technique is focused on as well as technique for men, and during the
workshops women are given as much to work on as men.
Because these workshops are designed for those who are serious about improving their
dance, homework will be set, to encourage you to practise, and every second workshop
will include a review of the work we did in the first workshop. And we don’t intend to just
talk at you! There will always be time to practise and dance the ideas in during and after
Some of the best dancers in London have developed as a result of working at The Room,
London’s only laboratory for tango. Guest teachers will also be leading workshops on
Sundays throughout the year. We believe that to dance tango well it is necessary to
develop a tango body and a tango sensibility.
Theme for January: Musicality (the structure of tango music, dancing fast and dancing slow,
traspie and syncopation, towards a more powerful groundedness, rhythmic ornaments and
‘grace notes’ for the ladies)
We advise beginners to attend our beginners’ class at 7 pm on Thursday nights, which is
followed by our regular class for improvers at 8pm-9.30 £8 or £40 for 6 lessons.
Once a month, we intend to offer an intensive Beginner’s Day – details to come.
The Room is also available for practices £15 per hour – reducing to £12 an hour for multiple sessions.
Private Lessons at £40 per hour – reducing to £30 an hour for multiple lessons.
