Mobile purveyors of Argentine tango, Portal a Tango’s husband-and-wife team Bobbi and Patricia Lusic impart their substantial dancing savvy upon pupils around the Lower Mainland via public classes. Over the course of the beginner’s class, Bobbi and Patricia introduce students to the alluring art form by covering dance and fundamental tango topics relating to culture, musicality, and etiquette. With each progressive lesson, pupils slink and twirl through the curriculum at their own pace while honing skills of artistry and self-expression. Though not required, dancers are welcome to bring a partner or tuxedo-clad coat rack to class. Should movers miss a class, they can make it up at an alternate location, or confer with one of Portal a Tango’s astute assistants for a briefing on the previous week’s class. Fleet feet benefit from indoor shoes with non-marking soles or hovercraft capabilities in order to keep floors shipshape.
