It’s Leads to a Sizzling, Communicative Relationship
Tango is a sensual dance in which partners solely communicate through the movement and interconnectedness of their bodies. Dance partners learn to read each other’s bodies and anticipate their next move, which leads to strong communication both on and off the dance floor. The moves of tango are intimate and expressive, creating a sensual feeling that leaves the dancers feeling sexy and beautiful.

It’s Great for Any Age or Body Type
Unlike many other dances, Tango is more expressive storytelling than fast rebounding on rhythm. No matter your age, body type, or skill level, you will find success and growth in tango as you learn to communicate with your partner and develop awareness of your own body. Tango is used therapeutically throughout the world, and is currently being used in several Parkinson’s studies for posture, balance, and body awareness. It’s a great way of getting to know – and love – yourself and your body for who you are.
