How can I learn to tango?

PRÁCTICAS & MILONGAS

The most cost effective and casual way to learn tango is to go to a práctica (practice dance) or milonga (formal dance) that offers a beginning lesson. Most prácticas in Bend offer an hour-long beginning lesson each week. There are always complete beginners at these lessons, so even if you've never danced a step of tango, you need not feel intimidated. There will almost surely be other, equally inexperienced dancers there, and the lessons are always designed to accommodate absolute beginners.

GROUP CLASSES & PRIVATES

There are experienced Argentine Tango dancers in Central Oregon who also teach. See Instructors for a list and description. There is often a variety of group lessons or private lessons, either for an individual or for partners. Private lessons are more expensive than introductory lessons at a Práctica or Milonga, but you get undivided attention from the teacher.
