Knowing how to dance, like owning a handkerchief, being good at archery, and resisting the urge to draw mustaches on babies, is a mark of a true gentleman. Attain nobility with today's Groupon: for $40, you get four beginner tango classes and two open dance sessions at Triangulo (a $80 value).
Owned by Carina Moeller, Traingulo trains fledgling Fred Astaires in Argentine-style tango with a five-level training program at their relaxed New York studio. Each beginner tango class imparts participants with the fundamentals of Argentinean frolicking, such as the basic tango lead and follow, tools for navigating the dance floor, and how to maneuver a cross. While mastering the art of dipping their partner in zesty rhythmic ranch, students are invited to attend two Tuesday-night milongas. Beginner classes take place Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. and Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. in Traingulo's 2,000-square-foot commercial space, replete with oversized windows, high ceilings, and a new dance floor. Check the schedule for additional class offerings.
