Tango Drills

I want a drills class. One where we come together for an hour -- 15 minute warm-up, 35 minutes of drills, then cool down.

Every other dance I've done has this kind of class, but I'm not seeing much of it in Tango. At least, not in my community. And certainly not in the classes. The best milonga classes I've taken spend half their time on drills.

I guess I could email teachers and ask for a drills class. Or maybe get a group together of others who are interested in a drills class, and have each of us take a couple to lead the rest of the group.

Any ideas on this? And where I can get examples of drills?

For Jennifer Bratt's drills. Did three hours of this last Saturday (which is too much, but it was a workshop and very worthwhile.) do a workshop with her if you get a chance. In the meantime these drills are good to do on your own. You could get together with people and do them.
