Novice Dancer - Tango, V. Waltz, Quickstep, Samba & Waltz


Private  Lessons

My first private lesson ( Waltz ) with Primo Garcia was back on September 21, 2011 when he had to teach me the basics.    I had since then taken a couple more private lessons.   Below are video clips of the highlights.

Silver  Tango  -  Double  Pivots

Silver Tango - Margaret & Primo





                                October 23,  2013




                I finally learned how to dance the
                double pivots in Tango !!!

Quickstep 

Quickstep - Margaret & Primo






                               October  23,   2013



            I finally got my chance to try out the
            Quickstep.    I was rather apprehensive
            that I would trip up Primo
                                                                                                                   

                                                                                                                      Samba

Samba - Margaret & Primo






                                     October  23,  2013


               I had observed many times this Samba step
               but this was the very first time that I got to try
               out the routine with Primo

                                                                                                                                                 July   2012

           I had a great private lesson with Primo  -
           He taught me left and right box turns,
           side by side and pivot turn.

                                         August   2012

              I had a follow-up private lesson with Primo
              to smooth out the steps he had taught me
              in the previous lesson.  By the end of the
              hour, I was actually dancing a routine !!!
