I’m back, I’m unpacked, and I’m ready to rock and roll …. er…. tango with all of you again! I danced tango in 3 different cities (Austin, Albuquerque and Santa Fe) and country western in one (Yeehaw! Heavens, the various embraces…!!) and they all send their best regards to our community here in Bellingham.
This week we will focus on the energy and depth of the embrace, and body alignment, while refining steps or issues that you may wish to tune up. So bring your list, and I’ll bring my zen-energy meter, and we’ll take a peek at the topics of the coming weeks. Normal schedule this week. Next week may be a bit different, according to your needs.
ALL MID-WEEK CLASSES AT REBECCA’S HOME STUDIO, 2610 LIKELY CT. Park on the street, then walk down outdoor stairs on right side of house to lower entrance. Please email or call to register for classes prior to your first time:

WEDNESDAYS 5-6:30 $10. Early Intermediates.
Early Intermediate class, with good reinforcement of basics, technique, posture, and creative options to discover “what can we do from here?” Bring me your dilemmas, your balance issues, your struggling molinetes yearning to breathe free….
THURSDAYS, 7:30-9 pm. $10. Intermediate +.
*Includes posture, technique and balance drills, open and close embrace issues. Your increasing success with these techniques will determine what level dancer you become through personal practice.
*Fundamental patterns everyone should know, and/or review.

*Understanding milonguero vs salon style
SUNDAYS, 6:30-9 pm: ALL COMMUNITY PRACTICA Drop-in. Bellingham Dance Co, 1705 N State St, B’ham. Plenty music, plenty space, plenty tango friends just working out the details. Practice is imperative for improvement! All for $5! (PRACTICA DOES NOT MEET ON FIRST SUNDAY DUE TO TANGOLIFE MILONGA.)
Private lessons are still a steal at $40/hr or $50 for 1.5 hour for one or two people (lead or follow). Typically we accomplish a month of development in one session focused entirely on your personal needs. Highly recommended if you have skipped a class or two. Call to schedule.
