Argentine Tango private lessons
You would have learned from your relatives and friends.
In your teenage years, you would have gone to “practicas”, Argentine Tango practice gatherings in your neighborhood, where experienced dancers would help you improve your dance.
Money was not involved in this transference of knowledge, beyond paying the club fee at the facility where the practica took place.
The system functioned based on familiar connections and on your interest and commitment to dance well:
if you were committed to improving, you would get more practice and more precise explanations on details, and get to practice more complex dance patterns.
Your eventual connection to the milongas and the community of dancers who were regulars there was rooted at the practicas in your neighborhood.
These maestros were great dancers themselves.
In the 1960s, there was a gentleman called Gaeta, who taught Tango by mail, copying the idea from Arthur Murray, and would send you paper patterns to place on the floor to guide your footwork.
But I don’t know anyone in the milongas who learned this way…
Our goal is to share with you the powerful beauty of Tango, as it is a jewel that needs to be passed as part of the best of our human nature.
We know you will share our love for Tango.
Neither group classes nor private lessons alone will make you a good dancer. You need both.
