Thursday Class with Lu Ann: Do you hear what I hear?

  • ArtsPlace 161 North Mill Street Lexington, KY, 40507 United States (map)

In this class we will play with the rhythmic opportunities to be found within the music of some of the Golden Age masters. Leaders: You carry your favorite steps and combinations and navigational solutions around in your head. Can you find new ways to execute them based on a different rhythmic structure? Followers: You hear the music, too. What happens when your partner doesn’t seem to be dancing the same song?

Register in advance with Lu Ann at, and let her know who you have arranged to be your registration partner. To ensure balance and a pleasant experience for everybody, we need even numbers.

$12 per person. Exact change appreciated! ArtsPlace Studio 3B.

Lu Ann’s Thursday night “close embrace” classes will focus on creating a more satisfying experience for both the lead and the follow. If you choose to dance in an open embrace outside of these classes, you will find that the skills you develop here will still be of benefit. We will strive to create a nurturing and forgiving environment that induces a lot of smiling. Laughter will also be encouraged. When we are tense, our body can confuse our partner’s body.

Argentine Tango is a social dance. For that reason, we will rotate partners throughout class.
