Our first order of business? Wishing the best of luck to our students and teachers at the 2018 Metropolitan Dancesport Championships on March 8-11, 2018 in Long Branch, N.J.! We know they will do their best and make us proud.
Back here on the home front at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Albany, we have a few very special days ahead. From March 13-16, we’re focusing on Argentine tango coaching with Oscar Casas.
Oscar grew up in Buenos Aires, breathing tango. His father was a milonguero (a social tango dancer) who organized milongas (places where the tango is danced) in Parque Patricios, a tango barrio in Buenos Aires. Oscar is a well-known ﬁgure in the milongas of Buenos Aires, and his distinctive style is greatly admired by other milongueros. He is also extremely popular with young tangueros. He teaches with energy and humor, emphasizing concepts, specializing in improvisation, always interpreting the music and respecting the character of the different orchestras.
Oscar is especially interested in the dynamics and cadencia. Everything he teaches is applicable to crowded milongas.
Talk to your instructor about being part of these fabulous sessions with Oscar Casas. And make a note to yourself – on March 16 at 8:20 p.m. we will have a special group class with Oscar following with Argentine Tango Practica.
The tango is a wonderful, sexy, sensuous dance. Join us for Oscar’s days in the FADS Albany studio and you too will be gliding across the dance floor in perfect rhythm!
