Classes We Offer
Join Our Dance Community
The Bergen Tango Akademi offers a comprehensive program of (private and group) classes for absolute beginners ( soon we will also offer classes for intermediate and advanced students) focusing on the social aspect of the dance, its techniques and dance etiquette.
Learn the essentials of partner communication and connection that build the foundation for leaning tango. We focus on technique for the embrace, the walk, understanding parallel and crossed system, pivots, ochos, paradas and basic turns.
Learning Argentine Tango is like learning a language or a martial art and it takes time for the dancer to integrate these elements into their body language. We work with classic sequences to develop technique however the ultimate goal for our students is to build their capacity for musicality and improvisation. As students are ready we focus on fluidity in combining and breaking apart sequences for improvisation.
Private and semi private lessons are a great way to accelerate learning, address difficulties you may be having in your group classes, build fundamental technique, correct bad habits, work on special topics, add embellishments or prepare a choreography.
