Weekly Classes at Tango By The River

Posted to Featured, Grid Services April 12th, 2012

Northern California’s premier venue for Argentine tango, Tango by the River, is located in the picturesque and historic district of Old Sacramento in California’s state Capitol.

The studio itself has been called the “nation’s most elegant tango salon.” With over 1500 square feet of beautiful hardwood floor, spacious fourteen foot ceilings, and five 12-foot windows overlooking Old Sacramento, it is also probably the most romantic.


Weekly Classes

Every week, we have three classes plus a practica to get you on your way to dancing Argentine Tango socially. Check out this great program:

Tuesdays, Beginning Tango – 6:30-7:30 pm

In our beginning class on Tuesday nights, you learn the fundamentals of Argentine Tango: the basic elements of the tango walk (caminada) and introduction of basic steps, emphasizing posture, leading and following skills, and interpreting the music.

Tuesdays, Intermediate Tango – 7:30-8:30 pm

The intermediate class on Tuesday night focuses on pivots and turns, and how to apply all steps learned so far into the social setting.

Thursdays, Close Embrace Tango, 7:00-8:30 pm

The Close Embrace Tango Class on Thursday nights changes every month but always focuses on dancing in the close embrace, technique, musicality, and steps appropriate to the social milonga. A minimum of 3 months of tango [or instructor okay] is required before taking this class.

Thursdays, Tango Practica, 8:30-9:00 pm (not a class but a chance to practice)
