What is an Argentine Tango practica?
It is the place to grow and speed up your dancing skills outside the class or a Milonga setting. They were established since 1920s (called sometimes ‘academias’) and became very popular in the Tango’s Golden Era.
How to define a Practica and its benefits
➡️ A tango experience between a lesson and a milonga (social dance).
➡️ The practica itself is considerably more casual than the traditional milongas with a relaxed atmosphere.
➡️ Open to all skill levels. Everyone is welcome. The practica also gives you an opportunity to meet other dancers.
➡️ A supportive and friendly place to learn, ask for advice from a peer dancer or from the instructor(s) or just to workout your own ‘moves’.
➡️ For experienced dancers is a place to practice the skills you already have and develop further your dancing.
➡️ The class usually will be orientated to give participantes tools that can use for the floor navigation, dynamics and special footwork.
➡️ Unlike a milonga, it is okay to stop and discuss what is and isn’t working – to the limits of your partner.
