Tango lessons 1 to 10: The basics

Tuesday, December 14, 2010 · Category Art & Culture · comments 0


After having tried such Latin dances as Bachata, Salsa, and Merengue mostly throughout the years I lived in the Carribean, I believe Tango is one of the most fascinating of all dances. In september I found myself a course close to home on one of my free weekly evenings and so I started to Tango. The following videos are an excellent reminder.

Tango lessons: 1 to 10

The first basic steps are an absolute necessity although you may later find out that you are quit free to use them in parts as you wish. This is probably what makes the Tango so interesting. Where most dances require a very precise counting, Tango is just like Al Pacino once said: "The Tango is the easiest dance. If you make a mistake and get tangled up, you just Tango on."
