It has been about 5 weeks since I left Phoenix and I’m happy to report that I finished The Tango Workbook in time for the new semester. The Tango Workbook is a 65 page PDF document geared to the beginning Argentine Tango student. It is NOT a how to dance book – it is however, a supportive text for those students who learn visually and like to read what they might have heard or missed in class. I cover milonga etiquette, leader and follower technique reminders, a short history of Argentine Tango history; I talk about pivots, la cruzada, molinetes and more!
I have spent the last several years writing this workbook and have received feedback from students who have actually used it in their Argentine Tango course. Here are some of their comments:
It’s easy to read and to follow along with the class.
I liked the workbook and the information is super useful.
I sometimes miss things in class so when I read the workbook it helped me remember what we learned.
The section on Milonga Etiquette was very helpful. I was so glad that I read it before my first milonga experience. I was prepared!
