Beginners’ Tango Weekend

Have you always wanted to learn to tango? Do you keep putting it off? Well no longer! Jump start next year’s New Year’s resolution, or finish this year’s at the wire! Join us for a beginners’ intensive tango weekend in a gorgeous waterfront setting. Two great tango couples teach 5 hours of classes designed to get beginners dancing fast. Two special mixer dances to practice what you learn. Plus performances by the instructors and other special guests to inspire you.

Classes, Dances and Performances are just $65 if you register before January 2nd. Extra discount for full time students!

Where is the schedule?
Check out the class and dance schedule. There is also more information on the instructors.

Do I need a partner?
No! You will meet lots of great people to dance with! If you have a partner, great! If not, bring a friend!

What should I wear?
Loose comfortable clothes are best. Skirts shouldn’t be tight or too long. Otherwise, something that makes you feel great!

And what about the shoes?
Leather bottom shoes are best (for both men and women). If you have dance shoes, great. Well fitting men’s dress shoes also work well. Women should wear a low heel (1-2 inch) shoe that straps to the foot. NO platform heels. If you want to see some of the fantastic shoes that all tango dancers aspire to check out our vendors. Just seeing the shoes might inspire you to dance!

I want to learn to tango, but I can’t make this weekend, what should I do?
