Weekly Tango at The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis

Remember we do pay to have the opportunity to dance at the Ritz each week, but we do not talk about money per The Ritz instructions. $5 is a great bargain to dance at one of the nicest rooms in town. Please remember to feed the box and have the tradition continue.

Thanks again for your support; we have quietly completed 6 years of dancing at The Ritz. We are also well into our 7th year of our weekly Tango event.     Michael Flanagan, TSL

Nuestra Milonga in the Lobby Lounge of The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis every Sunday evening

The evening offers a free tango lesson taught by one of the instructors in our community. You will learn enough to dance for the evening and help you decide if you would like to learn more about Argentine Tango. The lesson is 1 hour and begins at 6:00pm.

Open dancing begins at 7:00 and ends at 10:00pm. There is a $5 cover to dance as we pay to have the floor for the evening. Dress the way you feel. Come out and experience a peek into Buenos Aires as you enjoy the dancing of Argentine Tango by St Louis locals and visiting guests. The elegance of the Ritz coupled with the magic of Argentine Tango a great way to spend a Sunday evening.

THEY ARE BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Before I reveal the exciting classes NICK & DIANA will be offering, please accept my apologies for having to schedule these last two workshops only two months apart. As my intention is to provide 2 weekends of guest instructors a year, this may be the last workshop I organize for 2015 so I hope you can take advantage of this visit. Note they have added an extra class bringing the total to 6…with a twist. The 3 Saturday classes will be sold as a package (No partner required). If they do not fill, they will be offered individually but know that the classes will remain progressive. The Friday and Sunday classes are available individually and with out a partner required. As always, classes will be balanced! Space is limited and most likely will fill so hey, why not use the N.O.W. theory to sign up? Privates are available ($100 for one coach/$130 for both).

Friday 7:30-9:00
Paradas, Barridas & Pasadas
(Stops, Sweeps & Passing Steps) These are some of the most iconic steps in the Tango Vocabulary. Alone, each one is a powerful tool, but put them together and the results can be surprisingly evocative.
Saturday ~ Concept of Embrace (Sold as a package)
1:30 – 2:45 Técnica y Abrazo
Entrancing movement and the embrace for which you yearn.

3:00 – 4:15 Soltadas w/ Different Mixes of the Embrace
Soltadas are movements in which we release the embrace, but not the connection or communication. In this class we will explore Soltadas and Different Embrace Positions.

4:30 – 5:15 Combining and Exploring Embraces
So many expressive and sensory possibilities to explore. Each embrace offers a different window into the world of Tango. Playfully explore different textures, movements & sensations!

3:00 – 4:30 Turn Entrances, Accompaniments and Exits
This class could be expanded to be the topic of the entire weekend! Here we will explore some of our favorite and most subtle movements.

4:45 – 6:15 Beyond the Basic Ganchos
We will quickly review some of the most common ganchos and then introduce and explore more… unique possibilities!
