While it only takes two to tango, it takes an entire dance studio to ward off gangs of square-dancing street toughs. Hone your defense mechanisms with today's Groupon: for $20, you get four tango classes at New Mexico Tango Academy (a $48 value).
New Mexico Tango Academy's savvy and experienced instructors help aspiring dancers build the know-how and muscle memory to execute scintillating feats of footwork and passion. Students of all skill levels can enlist in the one-hour classes, in which they’ll sashay across the studio’s wood-paneled floor surrounded by vibrant paintings. To help balance tango time with the outside world, the schedule encourages dancers to attend courses at various times throughout the week or practice in crowded elevators.
