Please join us for this extraordinary opportunity to learn tango from the masters! Become addicted to the most beautiful social dance of mankind.  Tango has been recognized by UNESCO as "Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity".  

Guillermina Quiroga has long been considered one of the World's best tango dancers and we are excited to have her return to Dartmouth with her wonderful partner Mariano Logiudice who has studied the psychological effects of tango in the elderly for his thesis in psychology and is a former karate world champion.

The classes will adapt to the experience of the participants. Everyone is welcome, even if you have never tried to dance tango before! There is no need to bring a partner but please bring comfortable clean shoes which allow some pivoting (i.e. are not too grippy).  We welcome attendees to explore being in the role of leader and follower, regardless of gender.
