*Privates are available at $100/hr
Come see the current hottest and most highly reviewed tango instructors! Their unique core instruction teaches counter-body and inner core fundamentals. These instructors are not the usual “here’s a new step” teachers. They focus on distinctive techniques you can put into your dance right away.

Take advantage of the rare opportunity to learn Tango Vals, which will make you a better dancer! This class will add sizzle and style to what you already do.

Anabel Saldaña and Jorge Mendoza:

Anabel is a tango and flamenco teacher. She integrates her extensive experience of ballet, flamenco, yoga and music to the Argentine tango social dance. Jorge is a National Senior Teacher of folklore and tango. He is the director and choreographer of Open Tango Company. Both teachers place the focus on social tango, while considering technique and essence as fundamental pillars of social dance. This results in a progressive and immediate work to achieve a real connection.

Anabel and Jorge are based in Buenos Aires and have taught in Europe and the USA. By popular demand, this is the 3rd year that they are visiting us here in Florida.

Parking in the lot across the street is OK, just get a parking pass from the front desk for your car, or just park on the street.
