About The Dances

 

Traditional Argentine Tango

Sandra_Devin

Learn Argentine Tango as it's danced in the milongas of Buenos Aires!

This beautiful, intimate, and elegant dance is based on a foundation of embrace, improvisation, musicality, and connection. Learning Argentine Tango is less about learning steps than it is about learning to let go.

It's not difficult; Argentine Tango is a social dance and can be learned by anyone of any age, physical condition, or level of experience.
