Try Something New!

The Argentinean tango holds a unique place in couple dancing. It is a social dance that can be enjoyed at many levels. It is relatively easy to master the basics of form and improvisation and yet great subtleties of feeling and fast, playful footwork can be explored as you progress. In its highest form it is capable of expressing the most profound longings that people can have about their lives, and each other.
