The Art of Turning

An Intensive Study Program for students who are interested in taking the next steps on their tango journey.

During this two-month intensive series, Tomás will take you step-by-step from the foundational skills of turning (walking ochos), to the sophisticated structure of the half turn (grapevine.)

+ Class Content Details

In the first month (May), we will build your base by working on rethinking ochos. In the second month (June), we will focus on the three step turns.

Month One: Rethinking Ochos

  • Fundamentals: Slalom or zigzag? Walking ochos
  • Intermediate: Spinning and walking in harmony, pivoting ochos
  • Experienced: Double spins, synchronized partner pivoting

Month Two: Building Grapevines

  • Fundamentals: The basic parallel turn
  • Intermediate: Crossed turns
  • Experienced: Mixed turns

The intention of these intensives is to support Argentine Tango dancing and its culture in the Halifax area.

This will happen through a coordinated community effort towards expanding the offer of attractive opportunities to study and dance tango regularly and locally.
