Learn to Tango in Buenos Aires

Print this page

Country: Argentina,
Type: Teaching & Education,

Learn to Tango in the elegant capital of Argentina! You'll have lessons with a private tango teacher, who will tailor your programme to your individual level of expertise. You'll also get the chance to see a Tango Show. The Tango shows include both singing and dancing and take place in local theatres and are great entertainment. Our teachers will take you to a local ‘milonga’ so you can see and feel the true Argentina Tango. You'll get the best tips from your teachers, such as where to buy shoes and which milongas to attend.

During your programme you'll have lessons with one of two private tango teachers who regularly teach in various places throughout Buenos Aires, including Le Catedral. Both teachers are very famous in Argentina. The lessons scheduled for you are:

  • Five private tango classes per week, each lasting one hour. These will usually be taken in the afternoons but there will be some flexibility, depending on your teacher’s schedule.

  • You will get a chance to attend a Milonga. A Milonga is an open Tango party where all levels mix together. People from all over come to this weekly social event, where everyone dances together and continually change couple - all lots of fun!

  • A Tango Show, where you'll have a free dance lesson prior to watching the history of the Tango through the years. Not to be missed.

If you would like to add more hours to your weekly schedule in order to give you a more intensive Tango Dance learning experience, we can do that for you. There will be a supplementary charge for the additional hours.


You'll live a hostel situated in a beautifully renovated historic building in Downtown Buenos Aires, very conveniently located for exploring the city and doing shopping. It's big enough to be sociable and fun, yet small enough to feel at home; a real chance to immerse yourself in Argentine culture.

You'll share a dorm room and have access to kitchen facilities. The hostel has several amenities, like internet and WiFi, a common area, DVD room, library, book exchange and a housekeeping service.

FOOD: You’ll be given an allowance for breakfast and dinner (not lunch). This arrangement is to give you the flexibility to sample the great Argentinean food. Right on the door step of the hostel there are many cafes and restaurants with great priced menus just waiting for you….the choice is yours!
