Mobile purveyors of Argentine tango, Portal a Tango’s husband-and-wife team Bobbi and Patricia Lusic impart their substantial dancing savvy upon pupils around the Lower Mainland via public classes. Over the course of the beginner’s class cycle, Bobbi and Patricia introduce students to the alluring art form by covering dance and fundamental tango topics relating to culture, musicality, and etiquette. With each progressive lesson, pupils slink and twirl through the curriculum at their own pace while honing skills of artistry and self-expression. While not required, dancers are welcome to bring a partner or tuxedo-clad coat rack to class. Should movers miss a class, they can make it up at an alternate location, or confer with one of Portal a Tango’s astute assistants for a briefing on the previous week’s class. Fleet feet must don indoor shoes with nonmarking soles or hovercraft capabilities in order to keep floors shipshape.

The husband-and-wife team of Bobbi and Patricia Lusic introduces all levels to the art of the Argentine tango during group, private, and semi-private lessons. They work with each dancer’s capabilities, using progressive lessons to build upon fundamental steps as they cover topics such as musicality and etiquette. The duo also hosts social dances for students to show off newly acquired skills, and puts on performances for corporate and private functions.
