March Intensive for All Levels: Back Crosses

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. March's theme is “back crosses”. 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)

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

Level 2 (Comfortable with tango)

  • "Tango Focus" 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 are back crosses?

A cross is a tango movement where a dancer (most commonly the follower) crosses one foot over the other. If their forward leg is moving when the cross happens, it’s a forward cross. If the back leg is moving, it’s a back cross.

Crosses are one of the fundamental movements of tango and are super fun!
