We're no longer in Chinatown! New Studio in Ala Moana! Come join Paradise Tango for 1.5 hours of traditional and modern tango music for only $5! This Practica is meant to be an affordable option for folks who want to practice their tango in a fun, friendly, and enjoyable tango space. NEW: 7:30-8:00 is a mini beginners lesson! Come join us even if you've never danced before! 8:00-9:00 OPEN Practica for Dancing! Dancers of all levels are welcome so come and join the fun and music. Let's grow the Oahu Tango community! We hope to see new and experienced dancers alike. Remember, practicas are where you can experiment and help each other become the dancers you want to be! What to Wear: Whatever you're comfortable in, though long skirts are hard to dance in. Sneakers, Slippers (flip-flops), or heavy platform shoes are hard to dance in. Try bringing dress shoes for gentleman and heels/flats that stay on your feet well and that are slippery. Parking: While there is a parking lot right out front the 1st floor restaurants/bars have sole access after 5 pm. Please find street parking or park in a nearby parking structure (2nd floor Walmart is recommended, or Ross if you need to do some shopping too).

Paradies Tango

818 Sheridan Street #206 · Honolulu, hi

What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in starting the additive journey that is learning Argentine Tango. It's passionate, it's fun, it's TOTALLY improvised. You don't need to worry about keeping a beat, or counting slows or quick steps. You don't need any previous experience or a partner either! Paradise Tango - Honolulu's newest dance company specializing in Argentine Tango - is owned and instructed by Brett and Jenny Griswold. They specialize in teaching absolute beginners (even those who think they have two left feet) as well as working to improve the technique of intermediate and advanced dancers. They great part is they're young, happy and since they teach together you get to see both parts and both the ladies and gentleman get help and comments specific to leading and following.

Right now we're in the middle of teaching our UH Manoa Outreach College Class. Information and registration for our Spring semester class will be up soon (Dates just announced for SPRING 2014: Jan 24-April 11 no class May 21-28).

We just got the keys to our new studio space! We're in the process of renovating (putting in a nice new floor for all of you to dance on) and we're planning to open for classes mid November. We'll keep you posted!!
