The simplest meaning of tango salon is social tango.
We are avid social dancers. And, we have a meticulous approach to teaching the mechanics of the art form - with an emphasis on posture, floorcraft and musicality. In addition to our regular
group classes in tango, we offer workshops in classic themes and special topics - such as Milonga (a festive
rhythm in the family of Argentine tango), Tango Techniques, Canyengue (a vintage expression
of Argentine tango), Tango Doble Frente, Embellishments, and Transitions in the Embrace (going from close to open and vice versa).
We have been guest teachers and performers in:
Augusta, Columbus, Macon, LaGrange, and
Nashville and Knoxville, TN
Charlotte and Wilmington, NC
Auburn and Montgomery, AL
New Orleans, LA
Jensen Beach, FL
Newport Beach, CA
Kauai and Big Island, HI
As performers, we extend our social dancing to fit the setting and event - visually communicating the
intimacy of the partnership and richness of the music - often with larger and more complex movements than
the social dance setting permits.
