Yes, short notice but we felt inspired today.

Beginning October 15 & 16 and continuing on the third weekend of every month, an Intensive Tango Training class will be offered at Dance Moves Center, 220 E Commercial Blvd, #201, in Lauderdale by the Sea.

Once again this is a class with Eddy and Veronica. Here is a quote on the gist of these classes.

"We will work essentially, in depth on the technique necessary to understand from where the movements come to obtain a perfect connection that allows to mark (lead) and to follow fluidly while we enjoyed music. To understand the movement and the energy generated in its dynamics, is the element that allows us to improvise fluidly while we interpreted music"

We will focus on the social dance and the Milonga's codes to help you to enjoy more the Milongas and keep the essence of the tango like in Buenos Aires. Body Posture, Connection, Comunication, Technique and Improvisation will be our main vocabulary.”

We do try to post stuff that isn’t Eddy and Veronica…Really we do!
