What we think about Tango:

“For us Tango really is an energy centered dance and can be a wonderful way to connect with other people in a safe, but often profoundly beautiful way. Dance is healing and so we invite you to let yourself feel beautiful and have fun for a night and join a welcoming community of friends to dance every Friday!” – Luis and Devi
