Beginner Argentine Tango Lesson for Adults
You found the Tango. Or – what is more likely – Tango found you. That is exactly how it happens: when there is this special moment in your life, when you really ready, Tango will find you.
For us Tango is not just a dance. It’s a philosophy. You will not learn it by repeating followers steps and leaders steps and putting them both together at teacher’s count. Tango is about building the relationships, sharing feelings, developing sensitivity, creating sensuality, enjoying the music. And so much more.
We are very happy if you meet Tango through us. If you already encountered Tango elsewhere, but it brought you to us – we are extremely happy to. We welcome you at Ultimate Tango family.
Tango is a dance with no end. It’s a living body language. The more you know the better you can talk, the more you understand. Its hidden beauty will reveal itself to you little by little.
We hope you will enjoy taking your Tango journey with us.
