Workshop details

Argentine tango is a Latin-American dance mixed with European influences, which means, it is a rhythmic dance. Understanding its musical structure, specifically the rhythmic structure, allows us to improvise in a way that is coherent with the music and expresses its drive and speed. In this class we will work on a better understanding of rhythm in tango: what are the strong, the soft and the “off” beats, what are the different rhythmic patterns that are commonly present in tango music and how we can dance the most common figures based on those patterns.

The workshop will include:

  • Warming up exercises for the legs and the core, followed by some relaxation techniques to free the upper body from excess tension
  • Listening and walking exercises to identify various components of the rhythmic structure
  • Understanding beat counts, slow and fast tempo
  • Dancing on rhythmic patterns such as “tiempo” vs “contratiempo”
  • Identifying and dancing to syncopated rhythmic patterns
