A family vacation in Argentina can be filled with natural wonders like Iguazu Falls. You can spend days shopping at the unique boutiques in the big cities. You can even spend hours indulging in delicious cuisine and drinks. However, did you also know you can learn how to tango in Argentina?
Out of all the culture in Argentina, the tango is the most popular. It is a passionate dance that is elegant and intimate. While there used to only be one style, there are now multiple styles you can learn.
You can learn how to tango in many areas of Argentina. But it is still best to learn where the tango all began and that is in Buenos Aires. There are quite a few places to learn how to tango in Buenos Aires.
A couple of the tango teaching hot spots in Buenos Aires include:
La Viruta is one of the most popular dance halls in Buenos Aires. You will find this dance studio over in Palermo Soho. You do not need to book a class in advance, so this can be an impromptu idea when you are on your family vacation in Argentina. The best part about La Viruta is they offer multiple class levels. That means you won’t get that deer in the headlights look by being in an advanced class. You can easily choose a class that is for extreme beginners.
Escuela Mariposita is a tango school that offers private classes. This is perfect if you do not want an audience or you want your entire family to learn together. You will find this school inside an old mansion over in San Telmo. After your tango lesson, you can explore the attached cultural center.
DNI Tango is where most travelers like yourself end up when they are interested in learning how to tango in Argentina. This tango school offers classes for all levels. They also have their classes in multiple languages, so you will always understand what the instructor is saying. If your family is not sure about taking tango lessons, you can always sign up for one of the free introductory classes DNI Tango offers.
If you are not ready to learn how to tango in Argentina, that’s okay! You can still learn quite a bit about this type of dance by watching it being performed.
A couple of the best places to watch tango performed in Argentina include:
One of the best tango performances is held at the Astor Piazzolla Theatre in Buenos Aires. It is a massive production that is precisely choreographed with difficult lifts and tricks. Competitive and professional dancers are up on the stage, so you know the show will be perfect each night. Performances are scheduled every evening, so it will be easy to fit one into your Argentinian vacation schedule.
The Faena Hotel in Buenos Aires offers a more intimate experience for watching tango performances. The dancers perform to live musicians, as well as singers. You can simply watch this performance at the end of a busy day. However, I recommend getting tickets for the dinner and performance for the ultimate experience.
Most people think that Café Tortoni is an eatery. But you can watch beautiful tango performances there too. The performances are held in the Alfonsina Storni Room. While you can choose from a couple different types of performances, the most popular is Tango Sensations. That show is held Mondays through Fridays, twice a day. Prior to the show, you must wander through the Argentine Tango Museum. You will find that museum right above this café.
This is what you must know if you are interested in learning how to tango in Argentina. You can learn the different styles of tango and take a lesson or two to broaden your horizons. And if your family balks at that idea, no worries! We can simply reserve tickets so you can all watch a tango performance on your family vacation in Argentina.
