  • What will I learn in this course?

    In this course, you'll learn the basics and many popular variations of Tango. Whether you choose to learn to lead or follow, after taking this course, you'll have a good understanding of how to dance Tango.

  • Why should I learn Tango online?

    In our online classes, everyone gets the best view, instead of having to crane their neck to see what the teacher is doing. In addition, when learning online, you can watch the lessons over and over again (now, and any time in the future), as well as rewinding or slowing down the video if you need more help with a particular step.

  • Why should I learn Tango from you?

    Unlike many other sites that offer online classes, where you might only get a quick demonstration of the steps, in the hours of detailed instruction you will receive in this course, you'll actually get a step-by-step breakdown of each variation as well as many specific tips about the finer points of leading and following them. In addition, in developing this course, we thought carefully about how to arrange the variations so that each lesson builds on what you've learned in the previous lessons, so you'll always know exactly what's going on.

  • Do I need a partner?

    No! In addition to teaching the variations in a partnered context for students who are learning with a partner, in each lesson, we virtually dance the steps with you so that even if you're learning solo, you'll have us to dance with.
