Dancing is one of the oldest forms of courting a partner, alongside writing their name in burning crops and rescuing them from Hades by hiding inside a pomegranate.

  • For $25, you get 5 tango or ballet classes (a $55 value).

Tango 21 introduces dancers to the subtle elements of Argentine tango and classical ballet under the leadership of Jorge Niedas, who perfected his sashaying style with Argentina’s Teatro Colón ballet and the Lyric Opera of Chicago. As pairs saunter across the floor, sultry tango steps blend each dancer’s strengths with grace and an intimate connection, like a three-legged race set to Bizet’s Carmen. In classical ballet classes, arches develop balance and flexibility while leaping, turning, and demi-plié-ing on polished wooden floors. In addition to teaching techniques in classes, Tango 21 schedules social events after lessons on Thursdays and Sundays to put Argentine choreography into practice. Students can come to classes alone or as a pair, and are encouraged to trade partners throughout to provide varied resistance and develop stronger tango muscles.

About 30 students typically gather for tango classes on Wednesday nights at the St. Nicholas School of Art and on Thursdays and Sundays at the Ukrainian Cultural Center. Ballet disciples study steps on Wednesdays and Saturdays at St. Nicholas. Dancers should dress in comfortable clothing that frees movement, including leotards and yoga pants, and must cover feet with ballet slippers or jazz shoes to prevent exposed toes from switching to swing style mid-dance.

Tango 21

With founder and artistic director Jorge Niedas at the helm, the professional dancers at Tango 21 teach bipeds how to execute skillful ballet and tango moves. A Buenos Aires native, Niedas picked up tango in local dance clubs before moving to Chicago as a ballet dancer with the Lyric Opera. Now, he and his team draw upon that dual background to infuse tango's twirls, steps, and dips with classical grace. Burgeoning ballet and tango dancers can pirouette in private classes, take group classes, or attend a drop-in class, as long as they drop in with grace.

Customer Reviews

The instructor is knowledgeable and fun! Him and others he invites made us feel at ease and we were dancing on the first day!

Sarah L. · September 3, 2015
This is fabulous, my friend and I went without guy partners. There were single guys there and single girls as well as couples. We really enjoyed it, laughed, learned a few steps and the instructors are AMAZING!! Jorge and Liz are so patient, I was certainly the weak link of the class but they made it fun. It's warm once you start dancing so wear light weight clothing, brush your teeth since you are a tad close and have fun!
