Argentine Tango Class--Beginner Fundamentals

Downtown Dance & Movement

It takes YOU to TANGO (sorry about that!). Tango is a beautiful dance from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Come and take a Beginner's Tango class at Downtown Dance & Movement with Marlon & Geraldine. If you can walk, you can tango, so give it a try! Come alone or with a partner. First class in the studio is $10. After that you can drop in for $15 or buy a 10-class pass for $135. PARKING: Street parking (free after 8 pm) on Hope, 12th St, Grand and Pico.
