      Hello Providence Tangoers,  

      Kirill Shklovsky will be teaching a three week series on Sacadas starting this Friday. Free technique is back, but just for the next 4 weeks on Tuesdays before the Continuing Basics class.  Save the date for James + Elena’s Farewell Milonga on February 11th!
        
      February 4th:

      7:00 - 8:30 Everything you wanted to know about sacadas (but were afraid to ask). In this series we will be working on all kinds of sacadas: leader/follower, front/back, easy/hard, fourth versus everything else. We will work on exercises to develop the sacada technique, and in the end we'll even get the spelling right. (Intermediate – no partner necessary $15 or use your 6 week PT class card).

      8:30 - 9:30 Guided Practica
      9:30 - 12:00 Tango Incident Milonga with 
      DJ Kirill Featuring the best traditional tango music and a healthy dose of alternative. $10 or $5 with potluck contribution.

      Two of our most beloved and involved community members, Elena + James, are moving away!  Before they go we want to have a really good time with them at their farewell milonga, Friday February 11th

      See you on the dance floor soon,

          Hello Providence Tangoers,

          Starting this Friday, Carlos Moreno is teaching a three week series on Strong and Precise Tango Turns (see class description below). Don't miss this opportunity to learn from one of the best leaders on the East coast!

          March 4th:
          7:00 - 8:30 Strong and Precise Tango Turns:
          Mastering turns is challenging but well worth it because so much of the dance is built around them. Over the course of 3 weeks, you will work on the balance, coordination and power required for strong, precise turns in both open and close embrace. You will also learn a few sacadas and boleos that can be unlocked once your turns are working properly.
          $15 or use your 6 week PT class card.
          8:30 - 9:30 Guided Practica
          9:30 - 12:00 Tango Incident Milonga with 
          DJ Carlos. Featuring the best traditional tango music and a healthy dose of alternative. $10 or $5 with potluck contribution.

                    Hello Providence Tangoers, 

                    Eric Lindgren + Rebecca Rorick Smith are here for the next two Fridays teaching classes on the topic of dancing to Biagi (Details below).

                    From past feedback, we have determined that either people find it difficult to make it to class at 7:00 or they make it on time and are annoyed that the class starts late.  So, starting this week, the Friday Intermediate class will start at 7:15 SHARP!  We will have music playing starting at 7:00 if you want to warm up before class.  

                    *  Starting in September, we will have birthday dances on the second Friday of each month for people born in that month.  This means that there will be cake!

                    Friday September 9th: 
                    7:15 – 8:45 T
                    atrumy Adornments for Everybody! Express Biagi's sharp surprising accents with fun and useful Adornments for both the Leader and Follower!

                            This Friday don't miss this class with one of the best teachers of our time on one of the most important topics in tango! Earthy Rhythms and Long Notes of Yearning - ?Dancing Rhythm and Melody (All levels) with Rebecca Shulman followed by the Tango Incident Milonga with DJ Rebecca.

                            "Rebecca Shulman is internationally regarded as one of the most influential teachers and dancers of current times. In the 1990s, she and Daniel Trenner ignited the growth of many tango communities across the country as a result of their inspiring teaching, including at the historic Stanford Tango Weeks.  Their dance, grounded in the traditional roots of Buenos Aires tango, was flavored with dynamic creativity for non-traditional possibilities. In NYC, Rebecca is the coordinator and co-founder of this country's most extensive tango program at Dance Manhattan.  She is also a co-founder of Tango Mujer, the famed all-women tango performance group.  Rebecca's "Follower's Technique" video is renowned, as well as her other instructional videos (see iTangoCafe.com ). Rebecca's creativity and improvisational skills are extraordinary.    She is highly sought after for her clear instruction on improvisation, technique, adornments and musicality." Hseuh-tze Lee Rebecca's teachers include Mingo and Esther Pugliese, Gustavo Naveira and Olga Besio, Tete and Maria, Juan Bruno, and Antonio Todaro. She has performed with the finest dancers of her generation, and given workshops across the U.S. Her dance partners after Daniel have included Omar Vega, Metin Yazir and Constantin Rueger.  In recent years Rebecca has been dancing, teaching, and learning with Evan Griffiths.
