Tango is a dance about connection: the connection between you, your partner and the music. It's also about the connection between every couple on the dance floor at that moment. Tango is an improvisational dance, but it has a structure that facilitates the communication between the partners. That communication and union of two people in that brief time is the point of this dance--not how many steps you can do or how fast you can do them.
Tango music evokes many feelings. It can be sad, happy, romantic, playful, ironic, nostalgic. Understanding and loving the music is one of the most important keys to becoming a good tango dancer.
Someone once said that every tango is a three minute love affair. Another way of saying "connection." Our goal is to help you find the path to that magical connection.
