By Popular Demand we are Re-Running this Seminar on Friday 10th March!
Designed to help tango dancers understand and connect more to the music and through this understanding, improve their dance.
This introduction is important as the foundation for the Tango Music Appreciation Seminar Series.
In following sessions, having created the grounding with this knowledge, we start using the body more to reinforce the theory.
Format: Like a talk, rather than dance lesson.
Music experience: You don't need to have experience as a musician.
Contents: We discuss specific tango music elements and how these elements connect with each other to create the genre (Tango Music) and style. We use examples of different orchestras and some visual aids, to see how the music is created by movement.

ROOM: Band Hall (Tango Garden Milonga hall)
