Tango 101: Free Dance Lessons
Wednesdays, January 8 – 29, 2014
7 – 8 pm
Walker Court, Art Gallery of Ontario
Come and take a spin around the Walker Court “dance floor” as we celebrate the period of the Great Upheaval — and the 101st anniversary of the tango! — with a participatory series of free tango lessons and guest dancers.
Although tango is a partnered dance, you do not need a partner to participate. You will find a partner at the lessons, and we change partners during the lesson so you will have the opportunity to dance with different people. Couples that join the class are also encouraged to rotate partners. Wear comfortable clothing so you can move with ease; leather-soled shoes are recommended but not required.
