Cross-Foot System Tango Sequences (Int./Adv.)

This is our new series for 2023! We will be introducing the wonderful world of the cross-foot tango system. There are two systems in tango- parallel system, and cross-foot system. One thing that makes tango unique from many other dance forms is the cross-foot system. A solid understanding of both systems means there will be no wrong foot when dancing- never get lost in the dance. This class series will explore many fun and unique sequences for both the leader and followers using the cross-foot system and show you how to change between the two systems.
