Pupils take a total of six lessons—three on Saturday, May 5, and three on Sunday, May 6, all held on at the main gym in the south gym building on the Santa Monica High School campus. On both days, lessons begin at noon and end at 4:15 p.m., and cover basic steps, crosses, turns, molinettes, and other fundamental moves. After the lessons conclude, students can choose a social-dance (milonga) date from the calendar. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and shoes with covered heels. Shoes with rubber soles or Inspector Gadget springs are discouraged.<p>
Santa Monica Tango Festival
Attended by more than 500 visitors from around the world each of the past two years, the Santa Monica Tango Festival introduces aspiring dancers to tango, an Argentine style of dance renowned for its sensuality. A dedicated team of regular instructors, DJs, and boot-camp instructors assist beginners in learning the movement-based art during one-hour workshops and two-day boot camps. Additionally, the festival’s milongas, or social-dance nights, allow jovial groups to gather and practice their skills in a low-pressure environment.
