Tango Pulse | Argentine Tango
Our community attracts dancers from Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, New York and beyond! We are known for our welcoming community, rewarding classes and unique Assistant program. In our classes, we teach both open and close embrace, and explore elements of traditional, salon and nuevo styles of Argentinean tango. Our focus is on ways to dance and connect that support comfortable, healthy physical technique for every person. We have a large group of dancers who are in love with Tango but, at the same time, recognize that it’s not just about the dancing, it’s social…and building a healthy, friendly, open minded community is just as important.

Fundamentals :: This class is suitable for all levels, from first time Tango dancers to those who have been dancing for many years! While we are dealing with the fundamentals of tango, those of us who have been dancing for a while know how important it is to revisit and refine our technique regularly. Classes will focus on connection, embrace, technique, the mechanics of tango movement and important elements of social dancing. New students will receive 30 minutes with an experienced TangoPulse Assistant at the beginning of class. This unique service helps students advance much more quickly than traditional group class models.
Structures :: This class is designed for students who understand the fundamentals of Tango, and would like to apply them to more complex structures. We will break each structure down to understand form, connection and technique, while offering new concepts and opportunities for discovery. We encourage students to think creatively about how to enter and exit each structure, and to extract elements that excite them to add to their social dancing repertoire. September topic: Leg wraps & ganchos :: October topic: TBD .
We highly recommend that all students taking the Structures class also take the Fundamentals class, as the foundational knowledge gained there will significantly improve students’ ability to learn and retain each week’s structure. Discounted prices available for those purchasing the double class + practica package.
Cost for a 5-week package:
:: $60 for a single class + practica package (or $15 per single class)
:: $100 for a double class + practica package (or $25 per double class)
