Muma in Bend

Muma will be in Bend June, 7th through the 11th for Workshops, semi-private and private lessons.  
Muma's goal as a teacher is to provide the skills needed to dance successfully in the social tango setting. She concentrates first on the fundamental elements of tango dancing: posture, balance, the embrace, and walking on the beat. Once the students walk on the beat, in the embrace, and with the correct posture, steps commonly used in the milongas are introduced, including crisp turns to the left and to the right. The lessons are aimed at building up student self-confidence and giving them technique skills to make them stand out as social tango dancers.  

PRIVATES: Important: Muma will be available for privates June 7th to the 11th, individuals or up to four people having similar dancing skills. Material to be jointly arranged by students and teacher. 1 person, $70; 2 people $90, 4 people $150 per hour. NO studio fee.
Schedule: June 7th and 8th, 10 am - 7 pm; June 11th, 10 am - 5 pm. Limited times during the weekend. Reserve your time calling Alicia at 541-330-4071 or sending an email to bendtango@gmail.com.
