GINGERFRED ARGENTINE TANGO
At GingerFred we teach social Argentine Tango - we focus on the steps and techniques taught in Buenos Aires and teacher Louise takes regular visits to the vibrant city to ensure she is up to date with the social steps.
We really encourage absolute beginners; enjoying offering the very beginnings to embracing the important methodology. To dance as a social pleasure.
The Argentine Tango is a rich and playful dance between 2 people. It is danced in both modern and traditional styles all over the world - there are also many styles within these styles!
Here at GingerFred we share the methods of a more relaxed social tango. This encourages a natural and comfortable posture - making it much more doable for the apprehensive person new to dance!
Attention is given to the truthful physical conversation that exists through learning a genuine and confident 'Lead and Follow'.
We welcome beginners, couples, people on their own (we don't rotate partners) friends, we even have siblings - we are very welcoming! We have found people gain so much from thoroughly learning the basics - how to walk, pivot, change weight....
Many people think of ballroom tango when they think of tango yet they are very different; ballroom tango leans to large sweeps and gestures governed by slows and quicks and a strong frame. Argentine Tango is improvisational and grows out of walks to wonderful music and listening to where the steps want to go.
The same can also be said of the tango you may have seen on shows such as 'Strictly' - this is Show Tango and the large, dramatic moves are focused on competition and spectator.
The tango we want to show you at GingerFred belongs in the cosy dance halls with ordinary folk learning a dance of sensitivity, collaboration, musicality and vibrancy.
We know you will love it - send us a message today - if the class is full we can put you on the waiting list!
