Looking to spice up your dating life? Take an Argentine tango class!
There’s nothing sexier than someone who can dance, especially if they can tango. Tango Chicago’s 60-minute dance class is part introduction to Argentine tango, part speed dating event with dance partners that rotate regularly. Tango Chicago promises that if you can count to eight and walk in a straight line, you can learn to tango, and you might even meet the love of your life!
Argentine tango is a sultry, close-quarters dance where partners hold each other in a tight embrace, their heads pressed together as they dance around the room. While the exact origin of Argentine tango isn’t totally clear, the dance style was part of an underground scene in Argentina until the 1980s. Now, Argentine tango is danced all over the world, bringing hearts together through the magic of movement.
One thing that makes Argentine Tango so romantic is the music. Partners dance to stories of forbidden love, unrequited anguish, and deep desires. Combined with the close embrace of dancers, Argentine Tango is a soap opera you tell with your body. The drama of it, the sadness, the sultry narrative is what keeps dance students coming back for more.
Tango Chicago is taught by Al Gates, a master dance instructor with nearly 20 years of experience. His classes make it fun and easy to learn the basics of Argentine tango, allowing dancers to build on what they know and make the dance their own.
Tango Chicago’s classes have a knack for connecting people through the power of dance. Each class you have the opportunity to dance with multiple different people. The social experience is similar to speed-dating but with a deeper level of intimacy as you dance around the room together. Gates is proud to say many of his students are now couples and some are even married because they met on his dance floor!
