Excelling in the art of dance requires patience, swanlike grace, and a pair of feet strong enough to squeeze two lumps of coal until milk comes out. Massage coal teats into a dance bucket with today's Groupon: for $20, you get four weeks of introductory adult tango classes (a $40 value) at Tango del Barrio, located in Northside. High-school and college students should not buy this Groupon, as Tango del Barrio offers discounted lessons to students.
Tango del Barrio hosts a full range of Argentine dance classes for fresh-footed fillies and experienced hoofers alike. Novice tango practitioners can partake in 75-minute introductory sessions on Friday nights from 7:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m., leaving plenty of time to take newly developed choreography into clubs. Utilizing a loose embrace, walking-tango moves perpetually adjust to the music’s flow, with polished dancers appearing as if they are hovering or moonwalking on a cloud of honey. Purchase an additional Groupon to woo an intended dance partner or apologize for mistaking a previous dance partner’s high heels for a shoe phone.
For extended rehearsals, pupils can attend practicas on Wednesday nights, designed so tangoists can refine their footwork in a low-pressure environment. Or wow classmates and incredulous dance floors with newly acquired skills at milongas formal events, held on the second Friday and third Saturday of every month.
Leather-soled shoes are recommended. Free parking is available on the street and in the lot directly behind the building.
