Argentine tango is basically a walking dance. Argentineans say if you can learn to walk, the rest is easy. They also say you have to “walk your miles” to learn to dance tango.
Tango Lewes began as a way for us to share our love of Argentine Tango and build a community in Southern Delaware. We use dance as a way to connect with ourselves and with other people, and have a lot of fun! We hold two weekly practice sessions and have a monthly milonga, or social dance.Classes Offered by Tango Lewes:
For newcomers to Tango we also have a variety of dance lessons to get you started. Our ‘Try Tango’ classes provide an opportunity to see if you like it and these can be followed up by beginners and intermediate courses.
