Tango – Hanoï Milonga: the essentials of Tango
Tango classes can be a couple's night out or a social dance evening, but more than anything a form of exercise and a way to get confident with one's body and expression. Due to its origin and style, these classes are aimed at adults with no previous knowledge of the Argentinian dance. The main objective of this course is getting to know the technique, the music, and the general principles of this South American dance, while also enjoying the chance to perform and learning to improvise.
