Frequently Asked Questions

What tango (mostly) is? Many things:

  • a culture from the area of Río de la plata (Buenos Aires, Montevideo)
  • mainly three things: lyrics and poetry, music, and dance
  • bandoneon
  • a life style for some, a fun for others, for some it is a sense for, or identification with, the place it originated

What tango (mostly) is not?

  • rose in a mouth, “Some Like It Hot”
  • jerky movements with head
  • infinitely repeated and perfectionized routines
  • accordion (although many musicians may not agree, and maybe they’re right)

You cannot really learn in a way that you can say “now I know tango.” If you fall in love with it, you can learn, study, improve as long as you like.

But ok, the basics take about a year.

No. Better to start from the basics to learn the typical figures and so on; there are certain particularities. If you feel like you need more input, you can switch to more advanced levels soon, even after a few weeks maybe.

Czech, Spanish, English, some even Japanese (really!)

In case you can’t make it to the classes regularly, you can come other time. (You can at least meet other teachers.) But, to be honest, we prefer you don’t wait with these compensations too long; the regularness pays of.

Yes you can. It is beneficial to have a partner, of course, but it’s not mandatory. Often single males and females register, and during first couple of weeks the situation balances. Besides, changing partners for a while during a class is typical practice to avoid getting used to each other’s mistakes.

For the beginning no special shoes are necessary but a leather sole is preferable as you can easily spin. High heel shoes for ladies are beneficial. Later we recommend to get a dancing shoes that are better suited for your feet, provide better balance a feel for the floor. For ladies, 6cm heel is a minimum (unless you have some medical issues). Although it may seem a lot, it is not and it makes dancing tango easier for you.

Just write us an email (see the contact in the footer).

Anyway, you can get dancing shoes on many places but we recommend to always weare it and try it walking before you buy.

Milonga has at least two meanings:

  • another dance from Río de la plata
  • a place where you can socially dance tango, vals or milonga

Caminito in Spanish can be transladed as “little path”. Caminito is also a name of a small street in La Boca neighborhood of Buenos Aires (those small colored houses you may have seen before on pictures).
