From a spacious studio built and designed by Argentine artists, ARTango Center’s light-footed dance instructors lead swivelers of all skill levels through 90-minute group tango lessons. Walls adorned with colorful graphics and billowy drapes bestow an authentic Buenos Aires ambiance as groups of 15–30 dancers pair off to follow the trainer’s swaying footsteps during group lessons bolstered by contemporary music and imported hokey pokey movements.

During beginner lessons, groups rotate partners while learning basics such as walking, posture, musicality, and embrace. Intermediate sessions build on fundamentals to gain more complex movements, and advanced lessons fine-tune spins to a dance-competition sharpness. For more individualized attention, singles or couples can take command of the floor with private lessons, where the instructor is able to pinpoint problem areas getting in the way of fluid movements. Students are welcome to don casual attire and are encouraged to wear tango shoes, though comfortable shoes that enable slides, pivots, and dramatic dives to silence cell phones are acceptable.

ARTango Center

ARTango Center brings 2,000 square feet of Buenos Aires to Chicago in a studio whose ebony hardwood floors, exposed-brick walls, and flowing white curtains set the stage for tango lessons and lively milonga parties. Instructors well versed in the passionate dance teach both neophytes building foundational techniques and those who already sleep with a rose gripped in their teeth at night. Rotating partners help pupils think on their feet, and private lessons intensify learning at a pace comfortable for each dancer. On Friday nights, twirlers of all levels gather for a milonga, a tango dance party that offers a light buffet and the chance to try out ardent steps in an appropriate environment instead of with a bewildered mailman.

The instructors' demo at the end showed the conversation through energy/purposeful movement; after the practice of "baby talk", this dialogue was a delight to see.

It was great fun -- we are so glad we went! We (my husband and I) enjoyed it so very much we are seriously looking to take private lessons. LOVED it!!!
