The Evolution of Tango Dance seminar is in two parts spread over two days.

Saturday 20 August 10:00-14:30:  We are going to try together the most characteristic movements of each period and bring to life some of the best steps of the past! We are going to be surprised how much it has influenced the way we dance today. The golden age of tango was not only for the music, but also for the dance. We are going to study together all the fantastic possibilities that were born in this period such as "voleos", "soltadas", "colgadas" .

Sunday 21 August 10:00-14:30: How many styles of tango are there? Canyengue, Fantasia, Salon, Milonguero, Escenario, Nuevo. Why was the tango danced differently? Why do some women embrace from up and others put their hand on the man's arm? Dancing "apilado" or "in axis" or opening the embrace? We are going to answer those and more questions. The reasons and consequences. And explore the styles like tools and take the best of each tool to build our own tango dance. At the end of this seminar we are going to ask you: what is tradition and what is innovation in tango dance?
