Tuesday Beginner and Intermediate Level Classes at Crown Dance Studio

Tango is a dance of polarity, of the masculine and the feminine. Dancing tango socially is, basically, spending a moment with your partner under the music and with other dancing couples.


Tango was a dance of common people before the rise of tango performances. Enjoying tango dancing does not require athletic skills of a professional performer. Standing right, embracing right, walking right, understanding of marking and following, and the ears for tango music are all that are needed to enjoy dancing tango. With food as an analogy, it is already a basic but nice meal. On this solid foundation, more skills and technique add colors and flavors and increase depth.


In the beginner level class, you will learn how to make that basic but nice meal of tango dancing as well as tango’s unique codes of conduct which were developed for the best interest of everyone so that you will be ready for milongas (social tango dancing events). In the intermediate level class, you will learn and find the deeper pleasure of dancing tango and prepare yourself for the real world of social tango dancing.
