Beginners I Course
Begin your Argentine Tango journey with this 6 week 1 hour course for those that have no Argentine Tango experience or haven't fully grasped what it means to be a leader or follower.
We will cover what it means and feels to be a leader and follower, the style of walking, the embrace and dancing with feeling. In the end, you will be dancing a good beginner's tango.
Preparing to Enter the Dance Floor Course
6 week 1 hour course for those that have taken Beginners I or have shown a solid working knowledge of leading, following and walking style technique.
We will cover pivots, change of direction, the molinete, paradas (stop), sanguchito, combinations, the codes of the dance in preparation for entering the milonga.
All this as we re-enforce our walking technique, leading and following.
Next course begins:
July 11 | Wednesday | 8:15 pm | REGISTER >>
Practica Every Wednesday
9:15 pm - 11 pm
After our 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 9:15 pm to 11 pm.
Milonga Every Last Wednesday
Next: June 27, 2018 9 pm - 12 am
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.

We know style is important, but it's more important to have a well fitting shoe. Select your shoes by comfort.
Other Tango in DC Metro Area
For other Milongas in the DC Metro area, we recommend looking at the Capital Tangueros calendar.
Join our friendly community of Argentine Tango lovers for classes, milongas and Tango related events.
We hold beginner courses every 6 weeks, host Master Teachers from Argentina every month to expand our knowledge to the next level and hold asados (Argentine BBQ), milongas and other cultural events revolving around Argentine Tango.
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.
