'It Takes Two' will attract up to 5 couples. Within a small-group class setting, couples get to know each other because run as a course, participation is consistent. Kristina says 'I run it like this because commitment is key. It encourages trust, and leads to rapid improvement. It really helps the group, too, because even though you want to dance with your partner are dancing for each other. Argentine culture is about invitation and sharing space'. Argentine Tango has strong community ties and social etiquette. As couples begin to get to know one another, friendships build. Small group classes such as 'It Takes Two' can almost become a small family- it's very Argentinean.
"Differences aside there are two things that unite people the world-over", Kristina muses. "Music – and love. Tango on St Valentine's Day- bring it on!"
'It Takes Two' beginner Argentine Tango classes run every Wednesday from the 14th February to the 14th March, for 1 hour and 15 minutes. The cost is $250 per couple which needs to be paid prior to course-commencement. After you have completed the beginner course and if you want to continue, usually the class progresses as a group, or you can request specific instruction in the lesser-known Argentine Tango styles such as the traditional, up-beat 'Milonguero- style', or the romantic Vals. After 'It Takes Two', you are invited to participate in Kristina's 'Milongas' or social-dance events that celebrate Tango culture in Melbourne.
