Come and have fun dancing Argentine Tango with us. You will learn the smooth, gorgeous and elegant movements of the Tango. Easy to follow, our classes are for those who want to feel the Emotion, the Musicality and the Romanticism that makes the Tango a unique experience.

For the most common questions about our classes please see our FAQ’s page.

So, we would like to welcome you to the magic experience of tango. This is the beginning of your road to become a great tango dancer. That’s good news, since tango is a dance you can enjoy in every country of the world. It is an amazing way to meet new people, share wonderful moments with your sweetheart and also according to a research study from McGill University in Montreal, Argentine Tango improves your health and brain functions.

But, let’s say this is the first time you decide to take dance lessons or you believe you have two left feet or perhaps tango is a dance you always admired but haven’t tried yet. Then, our beginner’s class is right for you! See when it’s the next Intro to Tango Workshop.

Every week you will learn exercices in balance, coordination, body posture, tango walking, lead and follow communication, musicality and navigation on the dance floor. These are essential concepts you need to know to have a lot of fun and stay confident each time you dance the tango. See the Tango Conditioning Class.

Because we know how you feel when you begin, we will help you to feel good.

So…you think you can dance? We believe that everybody can dance and of course, you too! What you need is our expert training, a nurturing environment and your desire and commitment to become the dancer you want to be. We know many students who didn’t think they could do it and today you can’t stop them from dancing. But be aware, this may happen to you!

When we dance tango we become in a way one human being with four legs…and yes, it is true, it takes two to tango! This is the reason why we teach you to move feeling not just your body but to extend your sensitivity to include your partner. Then, magic happens! As a gentlemen you will experience the great pleasure of leading and as a lady get prepared for the exquisite joy of following.

Dancing is one of the most beautiful experiences we can have as human beings. Go for it and enjoy it!
