We offer Argentine tango events in Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Ventura county. The calendar below is all-inclusive of group events.

Thank you for visiting our Events Calendar!

We dance tango for the love of music  and for the joy of it!

The music is always a reliable partner: it can bring joy into your life every time.

Dancing well to music demands attention to fundamental technique rooted in the structure.
 

That structure is NOT associated with a style: "Salon", "Nuevo", "Milonguero", ... 

Classes are dense of information and accessible to everyone, guaranteed to engage the mind as actively as the body. They challenge some popular technique and lead-response concepts, and offer clearly-reasoned alternatives. All material is immediately useful for social dancing at a Milonga.

Since 2003 we have taught hundreds of social dancers by emphasizing the things we can articulate unambiguously and teach effectively, and without suggesting or implying that we can teach in a dance class anything meaningful about subjective concepts like passion, romance, elegance, and love. This approach avoids disillusionment, hastens progress, and, we have found, enhances the enjoyment of the dance. We have done this without pigeonholing dancers into hyphenated so-called "styles" of tango: salon-tango, nuevo-tango, milonguero-tango, ... Consequently, our students are able to confidently dance well with more partners than students of the teachers who teach a so-called "style" of tango. Unlike most social dancers confused by the advertising hype, they are also able to tell the difference between someone who has a gift for teaching the tango, and someone who has a gift for dancing the tango, and someone who has a gift for producing entertaining tango events and milongas.
