Argentina is considered the birthplace and remains the beating heart of Tango so if you are here in Buenos Aires learning spanish you should also spend some time learning this sacred national dance!
Here at Expanish we offer a combined package of Spanish and Tango classes. We offer many cultural “add-ons” that are specific to Argentina and they are a brilliant way to experience the local culture here in Buenos Aires. With this option of the Tango add-on, you can have Spanish classes for four hours every morning during the week and then twice a week in the afternoon, you can go on to a tango class close to the school – one group class and one individual class.
The group classes are a fun way to practice the Spanish you have learnt in class with a local professor, and other students from all over the world including some Argentinians too. The professors are all highly trained and experienced. You will learn the key steps through formal instructions and dance floor practice. As with the Spanish classes, we also have tango classes for different levels from beginner to advanced. The classes are usually given in Spanish but the professor will be happy to help in English if you need some clarification.
If you are taking Spanish classes, you are always encouraged to speak as much Spanish outside of the classroom to practice your skills day to day in real life situations. The same goes for tango – apart from the classes, you should get out there and practice! You could visit a tango hall to watch a show or even go to a Milonga which is a local tango dance hall where you can put into practice what you have learnt! You can arrange any of these extra activities here at the school when you arrive.
