À propos du cours

How well do you think you know tango? This two-week mini-course is designed for music lovers, musicians, and dancers who are interested in learning more about the Argentine Tango. It will explore the many dimensions of the Argentine Tango music, including its origins, popularization during the Golden Age, dissemination abroad, evolution into an artistic music-dance form, and adoption by Argentine and international art-music composers to date. The goal is to provide learners with an authentic and holistic tango experience by intersecting scholarly studies of the history, theory, and culture of tango with knowledge of instrumental performance practices. Learners can also learn more about basic tango gestures and steps that embody the music, as well as the poetry of tango....

Very interesting course on a very interesting dance. But don't take it if you want to learn how to dance it. This is about its history. Several good links to several online sources.

Very good overview with enough information who want to learn more about tango. What I did not like was separate pages for music and text. So for example, when you come across the multitude of unknown names you have to try and remember whether you heard them on Spotify. That's too complicated. In addition for me it meant having to install Spotify which I will probably never use again, but it will have my name and email and continue to plague me forever. The names would be easier to remember if one could immediately see the person on a video or hear them in an audio link.

I enjoyed this course but found that the terminology was very difficult to grasp - many technical or linguistically unfamiliar terms were introduced without explanation so one was left reeling (the wrong kind of dance step, I think!)

So, some kind of introduction to such terminology or access to a glossary (didn't see it, so sorry if one was provided!) would have made accessing the excellent materials easier!

Nevertheless, a really interesting into to the subject in its musical, dance and poetic guises...

Thanks to all who contributed!

Very interesting but the first week, dedicated to the music could be treated into more details and to help retain the information given, maybe it would be beneficial to make the lesson more visual, especially for the names of people mentioned and situating them in regards to the different phases in Tango history.

It was great, I'd only have liked to have more of it. It would have also been cool if there was more to the technical side of it. In (1) in the dance steps and how they relate to the music and (2) the music itself, the scales, melodies and how harmony is created.

The most interesting part of this course was the history of the Tango. It does a decent job in describing the musical aspect of it, although the dance and lyrics (poetry) could have been a little deeper. Someone should do a revision of the text and translation of the videos since it has many mistakes. The professor tries to do her best to pronounce the words in Spanish but the text (captions) doesn't help clarify when in doubt. Great resources too!

Well-informed teacher. The course materials were not easy to follow and the Spotify list is outdated - some of the songs no longer are on Spotify.

Definitely interesting, but it seems multiples of us could not access all of the resources.
