What you'll do

My city Buenos Aires is the crib of tango. It started more than one hundred years ago and nowadays you can find over fourty milongas every day. I will show you the tango world beyond the touristic view, the real life porteños enjoying a nice embrace in the dance floor. You can take a beginners lesson if you want to actively participate in the milonga and get a closer approach to the locals. Milongas often have live music shows presenting the local contemporaneous orchestras and dancers. The ancestral entertainment of the people from this city is now at your hands.
Other things to note
The place is a tango studio where we're having the beginners lesson, it's located down town Buenos Aires and that's why it's a really easy access point. close to Obelisco, metrobus and subway station.

My name is Marcelino Fernandez and I´ve been a tango dancer since 2010 and started the "milonguero" lifestyle right away. It became my passion immediately, and put me in the most amazing and thrilling situations I´ve ever imagined. Along with "Malevaje Porteño", a tango company, I have participated in folk music festivals in Paris (France), Bitburg (Germany) and Lublin (Poland) and I´m currently dancer in "Lazos de Tango", another company. Thanks to tango I met wonderful people from Buenos Aires as well as from all over the world, and that´s what I love to share with visitors.

Where you'll be

I teach the beginners lesson in my place downtown Buenos Aires, and it´s an introduction to dancing tango, for understanding the basics and feel comfortable around local dancers. Then we will go to one of the many milongas that open their doors every night. We can choose between the fancy elegant milongas in Palermo and the nice bohemian ones in SanTelmo. In any case we will meet the local community, dance and enjoy a live music show.

Marcelino was a wonderful host and instructor. He was patient and kind. He gave us great feedback and was very encouraging. At the milonga he gently pushed us to give it a go. We are glad that he did. We had a good time and will continue to practice!

Marcelino was so wonderful and a great tango instructor. We learned some basic dance steps and then went to a modern style milonga with live music, beautiful art work, and authentic dancing! After, he helped me find my uber and made sure I got home safe!

Marcelino was very gracious and giving with his time. His teaching technique is very calm and encouraging. He is patient even with students who have no tango experience. We had private Tango lessons in his studio; and then he took us to a real Milonga in Buenos Aires to show off our new dance skills. This was a unique and fun experience for us. On another note, we had to resolve an issue (not related to dancing) that came up unexpectedly and Marcelino assisted us in solving our problem, even though it was not related to the tango lesson. I would recommend Marcelino to anyone (or a small group) who wants to have an authentic tango lesson/milonga club experience in Buenos Aires.
