Participants can BYOB, or sip complimentary wine and coffee between dances. Lessons are held at The Ball NY, Symphony Space, and Pearl Studios. The Milonga Para Todos dance socials are held at Basic Ballroom.<p>
Tango with Jon
Jon Tariq's passion for body movement and balance began with four years of martial-arts training before being drawn toward different styles of dance. In his early 20s, he had fallen hardest for tango, and began to pursue a career that led to instructing dancers internationally and performing in Lincoln Center and the Waldorf-Astoria. His specialty is the traditional Argentine tango, and he imparts his knowledge and passion to students of all experience levels through a philosophy that likens the dance to an unspoken language between dancers.
