Milonga Traspié with Guillermo García
Buenos Aires tango star maría blanco will co-teach from June 9th through June 30th

Every Thursday
8 PM to 9:30 PM

The fast-paced milonga rhythm can be a lot of fun to dance to, especially when mastering the rhythmic steps called "traspié", but it can also feel like a senseless workout if not done with the correct technique and musicality. Guillermo's goal is to make you a big fan of this great dance.

In this class we work on:
- Musicality: developing a sense of rhythm
- Technique for fast rhythmic steps
- Musicality: understanding the structure of the milonga genre, and how to use it in your dance
- Lots of fun steps!

You can bring a partner or come alone.

All levels welcome
Class fee: $15
