This series started in January-- intermediate level dancers can join us. The American style tango (AKA social tango) is pretty much the original tango as it was danced in Argentina a century ago. It is more accessible (easier to learn) then the present day Argentine Tango. It's a wonderfully fun and creative dance. We'll start with the basics as needed before teaching lots of interesting flourishes and moves.
