Argentine tango classes
Tango Tribe classes in Argentine tango
Conveniently located in east Oak Hill with easy on/off access to Mopac and West Highways 290/71. Directions
A new beginner series starts with the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m.
Passionate, sensual and instinctive, Argentine tango is the most captivating dance of modern times.
Each week we weave into the lesson some of the history of the dance, the natural movements basis of the dance, the codigos (codes) of the milonga (the social dance party), the styles of the famous orchestras. This series of classes will prepare you to begin attending the many milongas and prácticas in Austin and elsewhere with confidence.
No experience, no partner, no dance shoes required.
Caminar Abrazados — to walk in an embrace
Famously, Argentine tango is a dance of the beautiful walk, where we move in an intimate embrace with our partner across the floor with elegance, grace, power, musicality, and creativity.
Spirals — a universal force of beauty
Spirals of muscles in our body power our turning, pivoting movements, and spirals create beautiful patterns on the dance floor. Learn la media luna figuras.
La Cruzada — the cross
One partner takes a “shortcut” so as to confront their partner. An iconic move and one of the unique elements of Argentine tango. Add interesting musical accents to the dance.
Systems — beautifully simple principles that form the dance
Tying together all that we’ve learned this month, we see how a handful of simple ideas (two walking systems and three steps choices with respect to our partner) create all the rich improvisational possibilities of the dance.
