ORACLE, Ariz. – Sunday evenings are Classic Argentine Tango night in Eastern Pinal County.
Beginning Sept. 14 and continuing for 12 weeks, Central Arizona College is offering a Classic Argentine Tango class for anyone who wants to learn the fascinating dance that has produced more than 10 million participants throughout the world.
The 12-week course will be taught by Hector and Lidia Legrand at the Mountain Vista School in Oracle from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The class is $75 for Arizona residents and is one in a series of diversified programs being offered by Central Arizona College in the region.
This course offers a unique opportunity for couples to learn Classic Argentine Tango as it is danced in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Students will enjoy learning about the historical and cultural background of the famous dance while at the same time practicing and socializing in a fun, relaxed environment.
Students will learn the most popular basic steps today danced in the “milonga” nightclubs of Argentina while also beginning to develop their own elegant style. The first two sessions will be devoted to a review of the basic steps.
The Legrands learned to tango in Buenos Aires during the 1950s. They continue to conduct seminars about tango culture as well as tango dancing in the communities of SaddleBrooke and Rancho Vistoso.
The class is being offered through Central Arizona College’s Aravaipa Campus located between the towns of Winkelman and Mammoth.
