Tango in Atlanta 1

You’ve heard about Argentine Tango and seen it in the movies. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie danced tango in “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” so did Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Lopez in “The Wedding Planner,” and Salma Hayek and Ashley Judd in “Frida.” The music of tango was used in such movies like the “Scent of a Woman” (Al Pachino’s performance was unforgettable) and “True Lies”…

You have an opportunity to become a part of Argentine Tango in Atlanta – the dance, the culture, the community:

Join Tango Bohemia Classes in Atlanta

In our classes we offer a clear, straightforward instruction with an easy and fun attitude that makes newcomers feel comfortable from day one. We never forget we were all beginners once… And although you can spend a lifetime exploring tango, you’ll quickly learn enough of the basics to get on the dance floor. You do not need to learn elaborate moves to enjoy Tango. A well-known Argentine Tango dancer, teacher, and a star of the famous show “Forever Tango” Carlos Gavito used to say that “there is nothing more beautiful than basic steps…”

Sometimes people say they want to learn Argentine Tango but somehow get intimidated by it. Our suggestion is simple: start learning with only one expectation – to enjoy the dance and the process. Argentine Tango is a natural and improvisational dance; it is an art of communicating and connecting with your partner without words. You do not have to have a regular dance partner (although it helps with learning). Students are rotated in classes; and at parties (milongas) we dance with everybody.

For some Tango can become more than just a dance. It is a wonderful social activity which increases your elegance, poise, and balance; it also enhances cooperation and trust in relationships and friendships. When you join our community, the art and skill of Tango will become a part of your life. It will relax you and add confidence. It will keep you in good shape physically and emotionally. Learning and dancing Argentine Tango can become a healthy “addiction” for life.
