Argentine Tango

Argentine Tango was born in the late 1800's in Buenos Aires, and has been changing and evolving ever since. It is a beautiful dance form that provides endless opportunity for improvisation and playfulness.

Stay for the practice led by some of the advanced students. We will review the material from the first class, and other tango basics.
