Argentine Tango 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, Vals, Milonga.
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.
