Excellent Teaching. A Friendly Atmosphere. A Life Changing Experience.
Argentine tango is a social dance, born out of the immigrant neighborhoods of Buenos Aires in the early 1900s. Over the past century, its popularity spread beyond the Argentine dance halls and into the hearts of people from all nations and ethnicities. To this day, Argentine tango is enjoyed, practiced and embodied in nearly every major city worldwide. The tango we speak of is often mistaken for ballroom tango (international or american) or what is seen on "Dancing with the Stars". Authentic argentine tango is shared between two people, not to an audience. It's a dance that is as simple and complex as any language; an improvisational conversation with the goal of communicating ideas and expressing togetherness with each movement. The Annapolis Tango community invites you to start your tango journey with us and, like thousands of others, find fulfillment, joy, and self-discovery through its music, movement and embrace.

"The Mix" Happy Hour Practica When: Wednesdays, 7:30-10pm Where: Severna Park Racquetball & Fitness Club (SPRFC), 8514 Veterans Hwy, Millersville, MD 21108, USA
Practice is the foundation of the community and an integral part of the learning - an opportunity to practice what you've learned in class and bring it into your body and into the dance naturally. This is the time to make a plan on what you want to work on, agree to a strategy with the dancer partner you are working with -- be it for an hour or for 15 minutes --- practice -- and give each other feedback. THIS is how we practice! You don't need to come with a partner. ALL LEVELS come and practice with each other!
