Kid’s Tango Ballroom Dance Class

Kid's Tango online ballroom dance video thumbnail

We’re looking at Kid’s Tango today in our online dance video.If you want to know more about our ‘offline’ classes click here.

With our Under 8’s Rainbow class we start with a gentle warm-up, followed by some party dances and then today’s dance the Tango, adapted for younger kids.

The aim is to have a few fun elements that teach basic techniques, before we cover a couple of simple steps of this video’s dance.

Our Kid’s Class Tango Lesson

First of all Imogen is going to show us a warm up, but this time she’s making Antony take part!

We’ll then try our Hand Jive again (we taught this last week) before we try a variation on a dance called The Elephant Walk.

For this version of The Elephant Walk we’re going to begin by pointing our right foot out to the side, and then back in, out and in. You repeat with the left foot. Point back and in, back and in with the right foot; and then forward and in, forward and in with the left foot. We slap our right knee twice, left knee twice. Kick across with the right, across with the left. Jump and then Clap.

Finally Antony will take you through some Kid’s Tango with some help from Imogen.
