Oxygen Tango‘s instructors find joy, discovery, and passion in Argentine Tango, while also educating students to seek joy by delighting others. The venture was founded in 2009 when owners Mitra Martin and Stefan Fabry put their decades-long infatuation with the dance and extensive research into tango instruction to use. The staff and instructors divulge the secrets and techniques of the sultry, improvised dance during classes. This is infused in the curriculum, which gives students of all skill levels a series of progressing goals to drive achievement. On weeknights, they take to the floor offering tips and advice to help students embrace and flow their way through tango steps. Every third Saturday of the month, teachers and students gather for a 4.5- to 6-hour milonga, replete with a DJ, dancing, and partying. The schedule also includes prácticas, or practice sessions, where students may have the opportunity to dance freely with dancers of all levels in an attempt to perfect the intricate footwork and trade their favorite tango idioms.
