OUR STORY

Welcome to Argentine Tango

Argentine Tango is a story of passion, change and growth. It challenges us to learn about ourselves and to embrace others as they are. By growing within the dance, we evolve and change too. We learn to show up for our partners, ever evolving, and they learn to do the same.

It is a blessing to be in love with something you can do for the rest of your life. With love comes acceptance and respect, passion and heartbreak. Tango is not for the faint of heart.

Argentine Tango is the dance of connection and I relish in guiding my students to create balanced partnership in the dance, to embrace their individuality all the while supporting combined expression with their partner. How wonderful it is to create one song at a time, with one partner at a time, something fleeting and eternal at the same time. The song eventually ends, but our love for tango does not.

Paola Essential Tango

I dreamt of teaching the dance I love in an inclusive and safe space, away from weaponized shame or archaic expectations. I spent years reflecting on the best parts that I wanted to keep, and I added what I felt necessary for a holistic education. My classes are open and inclusive to all gender identities and sexual orientations.
