in Columbus, Ohio (ATCO)
Offering since 2004 genuine Argentine Tango instruction
and practice @ OSU, as danced in Milongas everywhere. Our AT is the contact,
the abrazo, one body with four legs, and we need three for AT: the lead, the
follower, and the music.
First component of our Autumn activities is the following course
at OSU Dance Department. Other activities to be announced later.
Dance 2190: Argentine Tango
Instructor: Yuval Flicker
AU14 Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5:20-6:50, at Pomerene 205
LEADS class number: 34710; FOLLOWS class number: 35213
Overview: Argentine Tango is a walking dance,
defined as "One body with four legs," or a "Sad thought that can be danced."
More precisely, it is a language, means of communication between lead and
follower. Having started in Montevideo and Buenos Aires towards the end of
the 19th century, it grew to a culture practiced in Milongas: Tango dance
parties, in most major cities.
Objectives: Study how two people can move together
as one unit in a harmonious way, attentive to each other, together with the
music: an amazingly satisfying activity. Develop techniques to facilitate
communication: axis, contact, walking, as well as basic building blocks of
movement such as ochos, crusadas, ganchos. Learn main music forms: Tango,
Requirements: Argentine Tango is a social activity.
Students would be expected to join a few Saturday night Milongas on Campus to
practice and improve. Argentine Tango has objectives far from those of other
social dances, so prior experience in other social dance forms is not needed.
In any case, we start from scratch. Need no partner, roles be changed.
Leather soled shoes help.
