Learn Argentine Tango w/ Carrie Field
11:00am / Groove_U Studio
Come join us and learn the basics of Argentine tango. This social dance is centered around an intimate connection that is known as the "abrazo" (embrace, or better yet...the hug), and is very popular all over the globe. It is very versatile and has expression that ranges from playful, to downright sexy, and everything in between. Really, the movement is often considered secondary to the connection one has with their partner, and the music.   This workshop will start with an absolute beginner class, and each of the (2) subsequent classes will build from there. Join us as an individual, or with a partner. Register to reserve your spot!    Intermediate beginners 11:00 am-1:30 pm  br> We will also have a milonga (social dance) at Durango Winery on Saturday evening from 7p to 9p.
