Don't Have Shoes?

We know style is important, but it's more important to have a well fitting shoe. Select your shoes by comfort.
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.
Join our friendly community of Argentine Tango lovers for classes, milongas and Tango related events.
We hold beginner classes every Wednesday, host Master Teachers from Argentina on a regular basis to expand our knowledge to the next level and hold asados (Argentine BBQ), milongas and other cultural events revolving around Argentine Tango.
