These lessons are also valuable if you have been dancing a while and would like to refresh your fundamental techniques. Those who can already dance, please encourage a friend to take their first steps.

The second tango lesson (Tango 2) will build on the fundamental principles explored in the first lesson and develop these into more complex movements. We will have some fun with vals & milonga too. It is recommended for a beginner to have attended eight Tango 1 lessons before moving on to Tango 2 lesson.

Between and after the lessons there will be some time of free dance and practising (practica).

    Argentine Tango Music – part 1

    May 10th, 2016 by Bärbel | Comments Off

    Argentine Tango Orchestras

    How to start your Argentine tango music collection?

    In case you are looking for some Argentine tango music, here are the names of the most popular tango orchestras and tango CDs to look out for.

    If you are just starting your Argentine tango music collection I would like to recommend this CD box set: ‘El Tango’ pasión y emoción: Astor Piazzolla, Carlos Gardel, Francisco Canaro, Carlos Di Sarli.. [Membran LC 12291]. You will get 10 CD’s with about 20 song on each CD for a reasonable price. You can’t lose with this collection. The only downside of this purchase: the official tagging of the tracks has several faults. You can find the corrected list e.g. on www.milonga.co.uk.

    If you wanna widen your Argentine tango music collection and you are more interested in special orchestras, these five orchestras are the backbone of a traditional milonga in Europe (in alphabetical order). I have mainly listed tango CDs I personally like and I own myself. The links will bring you to the CDs on amazon.co.uk.

    The Top 5 Orchestras

    Of course you will come across many more Argentine tango orchestras at milongas, practicas and in tango classes. Check out the following blog post Argentine Tango Music – part 2 (coming up soon), which will point out other important traditional tango orchestras.

    Welcome to Tango beyond figures – Argentine Tango Workshop Series with tango teacher Bärbel Rücker | Tanzbar in Bream in 2016! The West Dean Centre, Bream in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire has been the starting point of my tango teaching activities in the UK. We will be back on some Fridays in 2016. Come and join. No partner needed.

    SCHEDULE

    • tango workshop : 7.30 – 9.30pm
    • including a 15 minutes tea &  coffee break
    The workshops will be focussed on the music and take up different aspects of the dance too, e.g. the embrace, connection, the easy way on a social dance floor, turns & ochos. A good technique will help you to relate your dance more to the music and to your partner. The classes will be open for everyone, dancing for few hours or many years. Nevertheless we will start with simpler things and getting more advanced during each session.
