Argentine tango is a dynamic social dance birthed at the turn of the 19th century in Buenos Aires, Argentina. A blend of South American, Italian and West African dance traditions and music, tango not only inspires passion but also deep meditation and a playful exploration of rhythm and space, all of which have contributed to its survival decade after decade.
Join Casa Johnson Arabitg and Detroit Tango Project every Sunday for an open Argentine tango practice session (or “práctica”). Polish new moves you learned in class; work on your embrace, connection and balance; improve body awareness; and meet other tangueros in the dance community. Prácticas are valuable preparation for dancing at milongas, festivals and marathons!
