Argentine Tango Milongas and workshops. San Francisco, Lafayette, Walnut Creek, Orinda, Danville, San Jose, Cupertino, Campbell, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Milpitas. With Marcelo Solis at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires.Welcome to Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires.

My name is Marcelo Solis. I was born and raised in Argentina, the same country where Tango was born.
I grew up intimately involved in Argentine Tango and since 1994 it has been my profession in addition to my passion.

Our 8-week training program for beginners is organized in a way that will allow all of you to get to know what Tango is, and eventually make the decision to continue learning this art that is going to change your life and make it a work of art.

We will focus on:
1. Posture
2. Walk
3. Awareness
4. Musicality
5. Connection

Posture and walk, the first 2 items in our list, are the aspects of Tango that can be learned.

Posture and walk, the first 2 items in our list, are the aspects of Tango that can be learned, provided the expertise of a knowledgeable and experience teacher. These elements are also named “technique”. It is through exercises and repetition that we intend for correct technique to become second nature, which will allow you to contemplate the next items on our list.

Awareness of your own body, of your partner, and of the other couples.

Awareness of your own body and its movements, awareness of your partner, in intimate proximity to you, becoming a mirror in which you can discover yourself, and awareness of the other couples dancing on the same dance floor as you, since Tango is a social dance that requires a measure of responsibility regarding those who share the same passion.

Musicality is where your emotions will come into play, and this is what you bring with you to Tango.

Musicality is where your emotions will come into play, and this is what you bring with you to Tango. Music, in general, and Argentine Tango music, in particular, is a language that makes emotions talk. I will share my knowledge and passion for this music with you. I regularly post the most relevant songs on my website, and I offer well crafted and professionally selected tango music that you can purchase here or online.

Argentine Tango makes of the human embrace a work of art.

The last item on the list, embrace, is perhaps the first characteristic of Argentine Tango, the last development that appears in the social partners’ dances, the characteristic that allows us to pin down what Argentine Tango is: the embrace. Argentine Tango makes the human embrace into a work of art.

I want to clarify that this 8-week introductory series for beginners is no more than that, an introduction. If you decide to continue with learning more about Tango, your next step will be the intermediate series, which runs parallel to this series on the following hour.

Also, I must tell you that, if you want to get a real and profound understanding of this form of art, private lessons become necessary.

And also to travel to Buenos Aires and see Tango in its own environment. I regularly organize trips with my students.

Let’s begin.
