Improver Classes

Improver Classes

Improver level classes are designed for a broad range of tango dancers. The only requirement is having done at least one beginners course. The classes look at a variety of topics, developing more experience in the foundations of the dance, and moving on to explore new techniques and ideas. These classes are also good for more advanced dancers who wish to look more in-depth at their dance.

At Improver level, we have Tango Improver Dynamics classes on Wednesdays and our Improvers Course at Dance Base on Tuesdays.
 
On Tuesdays we teach at Dance Base. Our Improvers classes there run in terms. To book, just contact Dance Base www.dancebase.co.uk.

On Wednesdays we teach our Tango Improvers Dynamics classes. The classes are in 3-week modules. If you have already taken some tango classes, you can just drop in to any class.  For full information see Wednesday Classes.

Module start dates for Spring/Summer 2017 are: 10th May, 31st May, 28th June.

Wednesday Classes


Wednesday Classes (Improver)

[View All Wednesday Classes ]

On Wednesdays we teach our Tango Beginners Basics and Tango Improvers Dynamics classes. These are excellent classes arranged in modules of three weeks.

Tango Beginners (Basics)

These classes cover the basic principles of Tango Dancing, teaching you how to hold your partner and yourself, how we move and connect, tango techniques and of course a range of core steps that we use when we dance tango. In these classes you will start to find your tango feet, and to understand and move to tango music.
 
- These classes are especially for beginners, but are also great for those looking to revise aspects of their tango dance.
- The classes are in three-week themed modules, focusing on the foundations of the dance.
- There are 4 modules in total, making the whole course 12 weeks long.
- For absolute beginners, we recommend coming first at the beginning of a module.

Module start dates for Autumn 2017 are: 6th September, 27th September, 25th October, 15th November, 6th December

On Thursdays we offer a Core Tango Session and Practica Redonda, an assisted social dance/practice. It is open to all Levels.

A twenty five minutes session to inspire you in your own tango. Each week we pick a theme, such as posture, embrace, dissociations, quality of movement, rhythm or one of many other possibilities. The sessions usually focus on each dancers own movements, but also often include partner work. All welcome. For all levels. No partner necessary. 

Class Information:

TIME: Thursdays. 8.05pm-8.30pm
VENUE: Kirk O' Field Church Hall, 140 Pleasance, Edinburgh
CLASS CARDS: Core Tango+Practica = one class for pass holders

La Redonda Practica

Without the restrictions of a class setting, Jenny & Ricardo are free to work with each dancer or couple individually on whatever is needed. It is a place where even the most advanced dancers can practice essential basic technique, where dancers can go over class material that was difficult or that warranted further exploration, and where questions are welcome, and mistakes part of the learning process. Beginners are very welcome too.

The practica provides an opportunity for dancers to take responsibility for their own learning experience, with supervision and direction where needed. It offers dancers time and space to gain dance practice in a relaxed environment outside the class, without the rules of the Milonga (social dance environment), and yet while gaining many of the skills that make a successful social dancer.

You can arrive with a theme to work on, or ask us to suggest a direction of practice. All welcome. No partner necessary.

Class Information:

TIME: Thursdays. 8.30pm-10.30pm
VENUE: Kirk O' Field Church Hall, 140 Pleasance, Edinburgh
CLASS CARDS: Core Tango+Practica = one class for pass holders. Practica Passes available. Student Discounted passes also available.
DROP-IN PRICE: Core Tango+Practica = £8; Practica only= £6
