Argentine Tango in Fort Collins!


Find group classes, workshops, private lessons and social events here in Fort Collins, CO.

Classes are taught by Amy Beaudet. Argentine Tango is a beautiful, sensual, and inspiring dance form to learn. It can be a challenge both mentally and physically, and ultimately is an art of biomechanics. Amy uses her 20 years of teaching experience to break this dance down into small, approachable pieces, while encouraging fun and play throughout the learning process. 

She teaches the basic movements of Argentine Tango as a foundation upon which the core concepts of improvisation are built. This includes the frame, walking, turns, cruzada, and ochos. More vocabulary is added only as students master foundational movement.

Social Tango requires skill at floorcraft and navigation is continually reinforced at all levels.
Students are taught how to use physics to embody the connection of the dance and work with connection, technique, and musicality as a continuous integrated whole.

Amy supports the development of a clear and concise lead with a comfortable connection through simple footwork and musicality.  Leaders are encouraged to create their own dance and styling as a layer on top of solid fundamental techniques. You will become a leader who feels good to dance with. 
Followers are given insightful support from the standpoint of axis and balance, listening and awareness. Advanced technique will develop integrated, grounded connection and styling practices. You will become a follower that feels graceful and responsive as a dancer.
