For the admissions officers, enrollment managers and presidents of American colleges and universities, few issues are as important or challenging as efforts to diversify the student body. Educators worry that many groups of students -- under-represented minority students, the disadvantaged, those whose parents didn't go to college, and more -- are not enrolling at rates proportional to their representation in the country's population.
Tango is a rich and complex improvisational dance, considered to be the most challenging yet most fulfilling of all the partnered dances. Starting with a salida, learn to link basic movement patterns so you can have a dancing "conversation" with your partner. Learn the language of Tango and "speak" it with the music. Tango can improve your balance, focus, sensitivity and your ability to work with and respond to a partner. Plus, it's loads of fun!
