Tango Dance Lessons

Join Kent Boseman, Professional Tango Instructor, starting Thursday, July 11th for Argentine Tango Dance Lessons!  Argentine Tango is both a genre of music and dance invented at the turn of the century in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  Argentine Tango is a social dance which should not be confused with Ballroom Tango. In Argentine Tango, there is no basic step; the couple relies on an intense awareness of each other’s movements and energy which allows them to move in unison to the music. The ability to improvise a dance with another person and move together with such strong connection is a fascinating and addictive experience for many people.  Cost is only $20.00 per couple per session!  Class meets every Thursday from 7:30 – 8:30 pm. 
All participants must be Recreation Center members or pay the daily guest fee plus the rate of the class.
