A Chat with Argentine Tango by the Bay- Mobile, AL
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are the only dance group teaching authentic Argentine tango in the greater Mobile, Alabama, area. We use a unique accelerated approach that focuses on partner connection and the rules of communication. No pattern memorization! Learn the basics in just one month. Be dancing with a partner the first week.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Men and women: Be sure to wear comfortable flats or heels with straps or laces to stay on your feet securely. Leather soles are best, but just make sure you can easily slide your feet on a wooden floor. Wearing shoes that stay on your feet and also slide easily will make you feel like a pro.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
One of the greatest misconceptions about Argentine tango is that it can only be danced to specialized music. This couldn't be further from the truth. Argentine tango is probably the most useful dance for all situations and venues. We love showing people just how versatile this dance can be.
What do you love most about your job?
Argentine tango is a beautiful improvisational dance that has gained international popularity since the 1980s. Those who dance it love it. The joy of dancing in complete sync with a partner and the music is indescribable. To teach others to experience that joy is the best part of the job.
