Argentine Tango Lessons in Ridgewood, NJ

Arthur Murray Dance Studio Ridgewood

Tango Lessons in New Jersey

With its exact origins shrouded to this day in mystery, the Argentine Tango blazed out of 19th century Buenos Aires, to become a global phenomenon. To the unique music of the bandoneon, a type of accordion, dancers move to the "Ritmo del Corazon", the Rhythm of the Heart. Partners glide across the floor, blending slow sensual movements with hypnotizing shapes and leg styling. Although a wonderful dance for beginners, true Tango mastery becomes for many a lifelong pursuit.

Tango Vals Lessons

Taking inspiration from the waltzes of Vienna, Tango musicians began around 1910 to compose songs with a swaying 3/4 rhythm. The Tango Vals is accompanied by a strong underlying pulse and exciting musical rhythms. Dancers incorporate sweeping elegant movements, inspired by the Viennese Waltz. With a basic knowledge of Argentine Tango, newcomer Tango Vals dancers can have fun with classic Tango patterns, such as Salida and Ochos.

Milonga Lessons

Milonga is a term used for both a social tango gathering, as well as the faster version of the Tango itself. With lightning-fast footwork and playful movements, advanced Milonga dancers put the thrilling musical rhythm at center stage. Beginners can enjoy the Milonga by simply walking to the beat of the music!
