Our next series is

7:00 – 8:30 pm Fundamental movement, technique and tango.

8:30 – 10:30 pm Milonga, free to all students. $5 at the door.

Location: Owl Bakery, 295 Haywood rd., Asheville, NC

Class: $50 per person  

Milonga: $5 at the door.

In our fundamentals tango classes, we explore and practice basic tango movement technique and concepts. The series is designed to give students the tools to understand the connections among movement, the music, one’s partner, and the flow of the dance floor. By the end of the series, students will be able to comfortably approach and navigate the social dance floor.

Clint Rauscher in Asheville!

Clint Rauscher in Asheville!

Based in Atlanta, Clint Rauscher is an ever popular teacher, DJ, and dancer throughout the Southeast. His philosophy of tango is distilled in three words: “Passion, Connection and Technique.” Those who have studied and danced with him know that each is deeply imbued in his dance and teaching methodology. In addition to the class topics, Clint always focuses on musicality and proper dance floor etiquette (floorcraft) as well as perfecting the embrace and posture.

We’re excited to have him join us and share his experience and love for Argentine tango with dancers from Asheville and beyond.

The Truth About Boleos, March 8th

The Truth About Boleos, March 8th

A Boleos Workshop and a Victorian-themed Milonga!

For this year’s workshop before the Victorian Ball, we decided to explore so many dancers’ favorite theme: Boleos!  But this is from our perspective– so class will be filled with lots of juicy body movement explorations, partner connection exercises, and straightforward understandings of just how these things actually work (when they work well).  We hope you will join us!

~ Eric and Susannah Gebhart

Saturday, March 8th

1:00 – 2:30 PM      The Truth About Boleos I: Finding and Using our “Edge” in a spiral

3:00 – 4:30 PM      The Truth About Boleos II: Crafting boleos for the music– the communication & the expression.   

9:00 PM – 1:00 AM “Victorian Ball” Milonga

CLASSES

The Truth About Boleos I: Finding and Using our “Edge” in a spiral.  1:00-2:30 PM

Through exploring and applying the dynamics of our internal spiral, we will learn how to find the space where balance, extension, and release intersect, giving rise to the potential of the boleo. Followers and leaders alike will find and play with the “edge” from which the boleo arises. Intermediate.

The Truth About Boleos II: Crafting Boleos for the music– the Communication & the Expression.  3:00-4:30 PM

This class will expand on the concepts explored in the first class, to explore a range of expression in boleos. Using principles of the dynamic “edge”, we will examine the technique needed to communicate the quality of a boleo to our partner (both for leaders and followers). In the music, we will explore big & swoopy boleos, tight & quick boleos, and low and high boleos.

A SPECIAL CATWALK MILONGA

“Victorian Ball” Milonga

9:00 PM to 1:00 AM

Hosted and DJ’ed by Lisa Jacobs
Cash Bar
