This Immersion Seminar is designed for those who want to understand better the structure and logic of tango, and to build a solid technical foundation to be able to dance and improvise with ease.

In this seminar we will focus especially on Turns, Sacadas and Boleos.  It is not necessary to have attended other Immersion Seminars, but previous experience with these elements is recommended.

Focus points:

  • Understanding of the structure and logic of tango steps
  • Preparation, action and reaction
  • Geometry, positioning and orientation for safe dancing
  • Special technique for leaders and followers
  • Smooth transitions between tango elements
  • Expanded repertoire and possibilities for improvisation
