What you'll do

*** Due to the Covid-19 milongas are suspended until further notice. Online lessons are available and pre-bookings if your hometown is part of my tour from mid June. Feel free to ask further info *** Discover the real tango: Learn about its secrets, and live it as a local dancing at an authentic milonga. Get an authentic taste of the Buenos Aires tango culture with a lesson to learn the basics of tango and some tips to feel comfortable if it's your first dancing experience (or further technique if it's not). Then visit a milonga (most of the times with live music or a dancing performance) where you can practice and watch experienced dancers to enjoy an authentic Buenos Aires tango night out. Understand the soul of this dance from its history, the social codes it involves and its importance for the Argentinian culture. You'll get an insider look to what tango is really about, having the chance to experience it on first hand and not only as an observer, diving right into its natural environment: an authentic milonga. * There's no need of previous experience. * Solo travelers and queer couples are welcome. * Most milongas last longer than the duration of the experience. You're welcome to stay. * Contact me if you don't find the dates you need or to hire a taxi dancer (professional dancing partner).

Learn more about Jessica

Jessica

I'm passionate about tango and travels. Helping people to understand tango as a way of life, to plan their trips, immerse into the local culture and rediscover themselves along their journey is something I truly enjoy. Traveling in 32 countries so far was life changing for me, as much as dancing tango and researching on sociology of the body, which led me to get certified as tango instructor, yoga professor and dive into body therapies. It was an opportunity to learn other ways of doing and thinking. I switched from being an university professor and project manager for international organizations, and founded tangoimmersion.com to dedicate full time to dance/movement therapy and tango dancing, teaching and hosting cultural experiences in Buenos Aires and abroad. While I'm abroad, the experience is hosted by colleagues I fully trust.

Where you'll be

The experience starts with a personalized lesson at a private studio before going to a milonga. We go to a different milonga each night. Most of the times in Palermo and nearby neighborhoods, or near downtown and San Telmo (feel free to ask about your dates if this is an important point for you). When I'm abroad the lesson might take place at the milonga itself if my co-host is teaching there that night.

This experience is available starting May 01, 2020
