Argentine Tango Classes

There are two types of Tango: Tango Salon (Social Tango) and Tango Escenario (Stage/Choreographed Tango). Tango Salon or Social Tango is an improvised dance and is danced across the world everyday in Milongas (social dance events) every night of the week. Tango Escenario or Staged Tango is choreographed and rehearsed before being put in front of an audience.

In our classes, we study the social Tango Salon aspects of Argentine Tango. We learn to embrace each other, move as one and how to improvise together.
