All tango is created from walking:  Add some style and elegance, spice and interest, increase the pace or pause in an expressive way - Tango is unique every time and evolves as the skills are practiced and perfected.  Social Tango is not choreographed or rehearsed, it is created in the moment with freedom of musical interpretation, reflecting mood and intensity of connection. This creative class will accommodate students just starting out as well as students who have taken the basics before.

If you are hesitant to just join a workshop or class, then come to our Free Tango Symposium Saturday September 10, 2022 to find out more about the evolution of the dance, the culture of Argentina and why Tango is considered the foundation of all embracing partner dances. 

 Series Fee:  $150.00

                                  Payable at first class in full, cash/check

We invite you to pre-register and receive a pricing incentive at the Tango Symposium.  No partner required. Bring dry dance shoes and wear comfortable clothing.

Guardian of the Art

Apparently I have earned a reputation as a "Guardian of the Art".  This is a wonderful compliment and it places a considerable responsibility InStrangersArmson me to continue to protect the principal elements that characterize traditional, authentic Argentine Tango.  Since I learned of this distinction I have taken on the responsibility to focus every class on improving the quality, clarity and precision of Connection, Dissociation and Improvisation - the essence of Argentine Tango.

Connection:  Gentle touch with focused concentration, the 'connection' is best described as transcendental.  Partners focus on one another to develop an invisible but palpable relationship, defined by the desire to remain in a measured close proximity without interrupting or imposing on one another.

Dissociation:  With reference to self, dissociation is the separation and independent calculated movement of different parts of the body.  With reference to partner, we develop an understanding of how the transfer of energy may be given and received consecutively, not concurrently, which is observed as 'energy in motion'.

Improvisation:  When the partners connect and have developed sufficient dissociation they are able to move in a uniquely coordinated way that allows the dance to be created in real time.  Unplanned, unrehearsed.  The ultimate freedom of expression.

In Strangers' Arms  - The Magic of the Tango is written by Beatrice Dujovne, my friend.

Tango - Captivating & Inspirational

Tango in Silouhettesilhouette6 The principal objective of Tango Fantástico is to promote the art and culture of Argentine Tango through instruction and demonstration.

Often described as the seductive dance of one body with four legs, Argentine Tango is an expressive dance that follows artistic lines which are both improvised and led.  The dancers become the music and the music is the dance.

The tango embrace is close, soft and warm. Complicated improvised patterns are executed with precision and elegance; the tangling and unraveling of intertwined legs, deliberate and poised.  The fluid movement of the dancers is captivating and unique - an improvised dance is never repeated.
