The Argentine Tango is mostly danced in either open embrace, where the leader and follower connect at arm’s length, or close embrace, where the leader and follower connect chest-to-chest. To learn the basic steps of this impressive dance or to further develop your current skills there is no better experience than living and studying the dance, whilst learning Spanish in Buenos Aires. The Tango college used is only 8 blocks from the language college and talented instructors provide the tuition, all of whom are bilingual.
An intense, passionate dance form with an emotional focus that feeds on improvisation. Dancers talk of the “dunde” – the spirit that enters them as they near exhaustion: this spirit is said to take control of the body, making each performance unique and a spontaneous expression of the moment’s emotions.
Three elements make up the dance
1/ the staccato steps of the dance,
2/ the singer’s passion and
3/ the driving force of the guitar.
The Flamenco dance is performed with passion, fervour, even tortured expressions, but always strives for grace and dignity. The dancer beats his or her heels from a gentle whisper to a frenzy while clapping to define the rhythm or curving arms to create elegant patterns in the air.
Whether you live to dance, or would like to try it for the first time – these programmes allow you to improve your Spanish and discover the wonders of Tango, Salsa or Flamenco with local Dance Studios or Teachers.
Group Tango classes
Private lessons: Timetable varies
In addition to your Spanish course why not put on your dancing shoes and learn to Tango!
Generally students follow a two weeks+ Spanish language course with their Tango classes.
Lessons are given by local qualified dance instructors in a nearby Dance Studio, and can be booked in advance or once in Buenos Aires, in addition to the various language courses offered. There is nothing so impressive as a dancer who can really tango!
On your first Monday in the Spanish language school, during a break or after classes, the school receptionist will discuss the timetable options with you. The school will then reserve your first class and you will be provided with a voucher for the tango lessons booked. You can then arrange the timetable for the remaining dance classes directly with the Tango Academy. If you prefer to arrange the full timetable in advance, this can be arranged instead.Get a Quote now
