TANGO DANCE COURSES IN BUENOS AIRES IN ARGENTINA

“The elusive spirit of Argentina is present everywhere in Buenos Aires. The national dance, the Tango, is perhaps the best expression of that spirit - practiced in dance halls, parks, open plazas, and ballrooms, it is a dance of intimate separation and common rhythm, combining both an elegant reserve and an exuberant passion.”

LOCATION, EXPLORING AND SIGHTSEEING:

The romance of Argentina takes one's breath away. From the northern deserts to the southern Andean Cordillera, from Iguazú Falls to the magnificent desolation of Patagonia, Argentina's geography is varied and stunning. Argentina is geared up to thrill - from nights tango-ing in the chic quarter of Buenos Aires to gaucho riding in the grasslands of the Pampas.

Cosmopolitan Buenos Aires:
Buenos Aires is one of the most exciting cities in Latin America. Tango was born here, restaurants serve all manner of world cuisines, bars play the latest music, cafés spill on to the streets and nightclubs allow dancing throughout the night.

  • This fabulous city is renowned for its sophistication and has a surprisingly European feel about it.
  • BA is reminiscent of Paris and its tree-lined avenues and frequent plazas have a beguiling, faded elegance.
  • Downtown, the Plaza de Mayo is the traditional focus of activity.
  • Nearby Avenida 9 de Julio is popularly known as the world's widest thoroughfare and, with its nine lanes of traffic, is truly a pedestrian's nightmare!
  • Avenida Santa Fe is the most fashionable shopping area.
