Everyone will learn, dance, and have fun. It will be a night full of surprises. Don't miss it!

Why tango? It’s a great way to meet people! Tango is at its core a highly social dance. Whether you’re making new friends in class, or dancing with a new partner for the first time, tango is guaranteed to widen your circle of friends. Tango dancers attend milongas (social dances), held weekly around the city and are a great way to mingle and show off your moves in a friendly environment.

The school is dedicated to authentic Argentine Tango with renowned teachers like Sergio Segura; show producer, choreographer, dance researcher, and creator of the “Learn Argentine Tango System.” Visit the Strictly Tango NYC website to learn more.
