The Argentine Tango

with Laura Balladur


Class has begun

An Introduction

Argentine Tango is an improvised dance, a communication without words with someone you may not know, an art you express. This intoxicating dance has three styles: Tango, Milonga, and Vals. After learning the basics we will focus on moving with connection, musicality, turns, pivots, the cruzada, leading, following, and social codes for the dance floor. All participants are encouraged to lead and follow. Please bring shoes with soles that slide. No partner necessary!

Laura Balladur has studied dance since her first pli’©s at age 3 and teaching Tango since 2008. She brings her knowledge of body mechanics, dance, music, and pedagogy to the classroom. Both a recognized leader and follower, she creates a fun atmosphere for you to develop into a confident dancer. She also organizes a monthly milonga in the Portland Tango community, where she is also a valued tango DJ.
