Argentine Tango School

Ways to learn Argentine Tango

In-person classes in San Francisco, San Jose and Lafayette, as well as virtual and on-demand classes.

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, you are in the right place. I got in-person semi-private classes and private lessons for you.

If you are anywhere else in the world, this is the place to learn about Argentine Tango. My blog is full of articles about it, and you can start with "What is the best way to learn to dance Argentine Tango". Also, I offer remote classes and private lessons, and video tutorials.

My name is Marcelo Solís, founder and director of Argentine Tango School. Born in Argentina, I've been involved in Argentine Tango all my life, dancing, teaching, choreographing, and performing professionally since 1993. Find out more about me...

Private lessons

In-person and virtual lessons available

Private lessons are the best way to learn Argentine Tango.

During private lessons we focus on:
  • Good, relaxed posture.
  • Awareness about your body, space, and partner.
  • A nice embrace that connects you to your dance partner.
  • Musicality: how to listen to Tango music.
  • Footwork and technique.
  • Basic Argentine Tango patterns.
  • More complex patterns and combinations.

NEW: In-person semi-private classes

Each class begins with brushing up on the fundamentals of Tango: walking to the rhythm, proper posture and comfortable embrace.

  • We study movements, from basics to sophisticated.
  • We work on technical details through exercises and drills.
  • We demonstrate the elements’ function in connection with the music, the dance floor, your partner, and the line of dance.
  • You learn to gracefully navigate the dance floor as well as the whole cultural context of Argentine Tango.
