You won’t want to miss this Sunday when instructor Jay Aland brings us more fun Tango instructions to the dance floor.  At WaltzPlay we focus on Social dancing, which is improvisational and where we use the music to connect to our partners; this is the kind of tango that the Argentine people do every evening when they go out to the Milongas (as I saw several months when I was in Buenos Aires).  No fancy figures. No complicated rules. This is a tango which anyone can learn. 

This class will start with a review the Tango basics and previous learned Tango moves. As usual in social dancing, this will not be studied figures or postures; it will be improvisations based on our individual interpretations of the music.  Musicality. And it will look at how we can connect to our partners, to make them feel good and look good. Connection.

After the lesson we will dance to a fun playlist. In addition to various styles of Waltz, we also do many other types of dances: Swing, Two-Step, Rumba, Tango, Foxtrot, Cha-Cha, Hustle, Blues, Cajun, Zydeco, etc.

Also, mark your calendars for September 22nd to attend our fun Octoberfest Party and Polka dance lesson with instructor Jay Aland.  Polka was the dance craze that took America and South America by storm almost two centuries ago.  Polka dominated the dance scene for years, and even became a “ballroom” dance, but this is not how it started.  Originally the Polka was an improvised dance, with many possible moves, which allowed for great inventiveness.  We will learn the original polka – the improvised way of dancing.  Release your dance creativity, and connect with your partner in the lead/follow mode used in improvised dancing.  Dance for pure fun, instead of “getting it right”.
