* Atlanta Tango

Atlanta Tango offers the experience of tango as it is danced in Buenos Aires and the best festivals in the United States. Atlanta Tango aims to get students on the social dance floor as quickly as possible. We want you to be able to share the passion and elegance of this beautiful dance—and not be stuck in classes forever without a social dancing experience. We teach the close embrace style of tango, also known as milonguero or apilado, which predominates in the crowded clubs of central Buenos Aires. Unlike the performance version of tango, the social dance is improvised. The close embrace style emphasizes the connection between partners and musicality and uses a rich and subtle body language.
Teachers: Angel Montero and April Parker.


Buenos Aires Tango Academy offers tango classes on Tuesdays at Several Dancers Core in Decatur, GA. Fundamentals classes start at 7:30pm for one hour, Intermediate/Advanced are at 8:30 for one hour as well. Horacio also teaches regular workshops in North and South Carolina.
Teachers: Horacio and Marissa Arcidiacono

TE tango classes in Atlanta focus on teaching a social style of Tango which enables our students to dance anywhere in the world, from Atlanta to Buenos Aires to Paris. In our classes, we combine the techniques of traditional Tango with the newer ideas of Tango Nuevo.
