Without dance, people could only hum along to the "Macarena," and Jane Austen characters would be forced to say what was really on their minds. Let movements speak with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get 10 group dance lessons for one at ARTango Center (a $135 value).

ARTango Center's instructors specialize in the social and passionate Argentine tango, transforming students into smooth-stepping hip swivelers during group lessons. The center follows the techniques of 21st-century tango, fusing the tango developed in the 1930s with the eclectic beats of contemporary music in a lounge-like studio. As Latin melodies light up the studio, dancers’ limbs swing mellifluously in unison with their partners’ movements, creating a dancing duo that moves with the graceful power of crime-fighting swans. Beginners work directly with the instructor to establish the basic steps, and more advanced students benefit from advice on how to move more smoothly and comfortably. Classes are generally limited to between 15 and 30 students to allow for more personal interaction. As is the case when playing solitaire or rowing a boat in circles, students do not have to bring their own partner.

ARTango’s studio was built to reflect an authentic Argentine home, with a disco ball that splashes the wall with flickering light, a multichromatic mural, and smooth wood floors held in place by participating dancers.

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!!!
