With experienced instructors on hand to give tips, practice sessions on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday nights give pupils the chance to hone their pivots, and are included in the one month of unlimited classes option only.
New students have a lot of scheduling options and can join any of the conveniently scheduled fundamentals classes: Sundays from 5-6 p.m., Mondays from 8:15-9:15 p.m. and Tuesdays from 8:15-9:15 p.m. Beginners may also join a challenging all levels Technique class Thursdays from 8:15-9:15 p.m to develop the strength, balance and flexibility needed for Argentine Tango. Classes are progressive and build up over a four-week period so Oxygen Tango strongly recommends that beginners join at the beginning of a series, usually the first week of the month.

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. Clients are encouraged to participate in the Tango Challenge where students will learn tango movement, music, and culture and unlock their inner tango spirit. 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.
