Did you know that just TWO basic movement types make up all the richness possible with Argentine Tango? What about this? There are only THREE basic ways you can move with respect to your partner, and your partner has the same choices, and you can each start on the same or different legs.

At its heart — and our tango is a dance of the heart — we can learn tango from simple and basic principles of naturalistic movements that can become as complicated and beautiful, or simple and meaningful, as our spirit moves us. Tango Tribe teaching supports you every step of the way! How to appreciate the music (whatever kind of music you like) and express it in movement, how to move comfortably in close connection with another person, how to create variety and interest, and so much more.
