A Chat with School of Authentic Argentine Tango
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? We are the only school in New Jersey dedicated exclusively to teach the art of Argentine Tango. Owned and directed by dancers for dancers. Carolina Zokalski and Diego Di Falco, Tony award nominees for best choreography, personally teach or carefully designed all of the classes.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans? Argentine Tango Dance is essentially social and therefore, intimidating. We have no mirrors and everyone learns in a non competitive environment where you set the goals for yourself and move at your own pace. What matters is not how you look, but how you feel, and have fun with the experience.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Argentine Tango for us is not a job, a business or even a profession, it is our way of life. We moved to Summit, NJ from New York in 2001 and decided to start teaching and promoting Argentine Tango soon after that, when we realized there was no tango in the area. We could not survive without it.
What do you love most about your job? It allows me to be authentic to my core, I'm myself 100%, 24 hours a day, every day of my life. I do what I love all day and get to spread it around and see other people's transformation into a more meaningful and fun life.
