April Intensive for All Levels: Cross System

Every month, tango classes in Boise take on a new theme, allowing beginner dancers to learn a new aspect of tango through repetition ... or allow experienced dancers to deepen their skill in a particular subject. April's theme is “cross system”. Here's a level guide so you can choose the class or classes that are right for you:

Level 0 (Never danced tango before)

  • Beginner series lesson, 7:00 pm - 8:00 every Thursday night at Ochos (see description below)

  • Beginner lesson, 7:30 pm - 8:45 every Sunday night at Solid (see description below)

  • Monday's beginner tango lesson hosted by BSU Tango Club, starts at 7:30 pm (more info)

Level 1 (Some experience with tango)

  • Tango Level 1 lesson, 6:45 pm - 7:30 pm every Sunday night at Solid (see description below)

  • "Beyond Beginner" lesson, 8:00 pm - 9:00 every Thursday night at Ochos (see description below)

Level 2 (Comfortable with tango)

  • "Beyond Beginner" lesson, 8:00 pm - 9:00 every Thursday night at Ochos. You don't need to have taken the 7:00 beginner class to participate in the lesson (though you should anyway!)

What is cross system?

Normally in tango - and the majority of other dances - lead and follow step with the same foot. In tango, there is a whole world of possibilities when we get on opposite feet or “crossed feet.” When this happens, we refer to it as “crossed system,” not to be confused with the movement the “cross.”

Intermediate and advanced dancers can flow in and out of cross system seamlessly throughout a song. Learning how to get in and out of cross system, and the possibilities you have once you’re in it, is a big step in progressing in your tango skill!
