Milonga is a fast Tango rhythm, cheerful and playful. Discover the origins of this dance (African roots, habanera and candombe). Exercise finding the beat. Steps that travel sideways and facing the line of dance . La baldosa, simple with turns and soltadas.
Our feet and legs are like the bristles of a paint brush; tools to paint a picture on the floor or in the air. Taking care of them means keeping them flexible and straight. In the second half we will expound on the warm ups by learning some beautiful, and practical, embellishments to dress your tango.
