Tango Nova embraces the art of the Argentine tango through the trustworthy tutelage of Margaret Spore, an accomplished tango choreographer and performer. The Level I Tango Fundamentals series introduces the basic walking structure and the dynamics of leading, following, and guiding one's partner through the mastery of extrasensory counts. In a rite of sashayed seduction dating back to the 19th century, neophytes transform into graceful-footed dance ducks, expertly flicking heels around their partners' legs until they move in skilled tandem akin to the heartbeats of twin hummingbirds. As the dance is traditionally improvised to the music, both softly soled feet and focused minds experience an elementary exercise in grace and coordination. Gender balance is maintained in each seminar to maintain tradition, so singles may be wait-listed until enrollment reaches equilibrium, couples are guaranteed immediate entry, and trios are asked to stand on top of one another's shoulders.
