Argentine Tango Social Dance Program
Enroll in the Argentine Tango Social Dance Program - a structured way of understanding and furthering your tango.
This is your opportunity to be among pioneers in a brand-new initiative developed by the Canadian Dance Teachers Association BC Branch (CDTA BC).
Register and get started on a journey of discovering your tango!
The program defines specific goals to explore essential concepts and elements of Argentine tango dance and culture. It is designed to convey and preserve the authenticity and cultural heritage of the dance.
Along with an assessment report, the student is awarded a CDTA pin:
Pearl Pin for part 1 – Linear Motion: Walking & the cross (Caminada & Cruce) ,
Ruby Pin for part 2 – Changing Direction: Rock steps & pivots (Rebote & Ocho), and
Emerald Pin for part 3 Circular Motion: Turns (Molinete/Giro).
With instructor permission, a student with adequate experience may enroll to challenge the program and be tested on all three parts in one assessment.
