Practica tomorrow & the future of Queer Tango

Author: Lisa  //  Category: uncategorised

Come and join us tomorrow, Monday 19th September, for our Practica Dynamica

Please note this will be our second to last QT session as you know it. With our arrangement with Crossways coming to a close at the end of September, Queer Tango has decided to change its format. We’ll no longer run regular practicas or classes but instead will focus on occasional pop up events, such as QT milongas, or sponsoring a beginner class for our queer community. Make sure you’ll come by this and next Monday to dance once more and celebrate with us the joy of dancing tango.

Practica Dynamica, hosted by Queer Tango Wellington, is a relaxed and friendly practica. Dancers at all levels are welcome. From 7-9pm,  $5 entry. Location is the usual – Crossways Community Centre at Level 1/6 Roxburgh Street, Mount Victoria, Wellington, NZ.

Come dance with us

Find intimate silence and learn to listen with your body.  Argentine Tango is an improvised dance, requiring intense concentration on the connection between partners. Mastery of the capacity to create physical connection imparts serenity, grounding, and – with remarkable frequency –  elation. Tango will also improve your balance, assertiveness, and sensitivity. And it’s sexy…

You do not need to bring a partner, previous dance experience, or “rhythm”. We encourage gender complexity and exploration. Everyone is welcome! Tango has no age limit.

Come join us on Mondays from 7-9pm. When classes are running they are from 7-8pm and entry is $15, with a free practica from 8-9pm. On nights there is no class we run a lovely long practica from 7-9pm and entry is $5. Classes and practica are all held @ the Crossways  Community Centre in Mount Victoria, Wellington, New Zealand.

MONDAY TANGO: COMMUNITY & PHILOSOPHY 

Practica Dynamica encourages fluidity of roles and experimentation. We welcome everyone to this space where you can experience and have fun with tango. Explore leading and/or following, and the exhilarating connection of Argentine tango. Dancers at all levels of experience are welcome to dance in the practica.

Spirit of the practica – we respect all styles of tango and support diversity of taste in attire, music, and self-expression. The one who invites a dance will lead, and we only give feedback after ascertaining that the person wants it. We feel free and encourage others to try new things, make mistakes and ask questions. We celebrate joyful motion, have fun and laugh at ourselves.

Looking forward to dancing with you all,
