We will cover what it means and feels to be a leader and follower while also combining those skills with the style of walking.

May 23 | 7 pm | Wednesdays | REGISTER >>
May 26 | 2 pm | Saturdays | REGISTER >>

Beginners II

6 week 1 hour course for those that have taken Beginners I or have shown a solid working knowledge of leading, following and walking technique.

We will cover front ochos and back ochos, molinete (follower turns around the leader), giros (turns), parada (stop) and sacadas (displacement) as well as re-enforcing our walking technique, leading and following.

Upcoming course begins:
May 23 | 8:15 pm | Wednesdays | REGISTER >>

Beginner Workshops

Practica Every Wednesday

After our beginner classes, we leave the music on and have our weekly practica, Practica de Los Amigos.

A practica is where we leave the music on, no cortinas (no breaks) and in a less formal setting and etiquette, we practice our Argentine Tango.

Every Wednesday from 9 pm to 11 pm.

Milonga Every Last Wednesday

Caminito Amigo holds a milonga on the last Wednesday of  every month. Milonga de Los Amigos.

We play our favorite tandas and dance the night away with wine and munchies.

Our next Milonga is on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 from 9 pm to 12 am.


Don't Have Shoes?

While you can use your low heels and leather sole shoes to attend a class (no sneakers or platform shoes), we recommend for good beginner shoes at a reasonable price Fu-Hau Dance Wear. Ask for Judy. 703.508.3870. She recommends to call before going.

We know style is important, but it's more important to have a well fitting shoe. Select your shoes by comfort.

For other Milongas in the DC Metro area, we recommend looking at the Capital Tangueros calendar.

Tango is a feeling, a "sentimiento" that you dance to.
When you start the dance, you do not start with a step, you start with a feeling.
