Introduction to the course

Tango is known as a dance in pairs. It is a face-to-face interaction through an abrazo ("hug or embrace" in Spanish). To feel your partner's warmth and to communicate through dance is the real pleasure of tango.It is important to learn the basics and techniques of tango in order to feel, understandand communicate better with your partner.

DuringTiempo's Argentine Tango Courses, students can learn a variety of steps, techniques and foundations for dancing in pairs, from the basic use of the body, such as posture and how to walk.

A true environment where you can learn the latest Argentine Tango trends and techniques is created thanks to professional instructors invited from Argentina. Eventually, we will give lessons so that each student can express “himself” or “herself” through dancing.Lessons in Japan taughtby a professional pair of dancers are very rare. In addition, the ability to learn both male and female techniques is also a feature of Tiempo's Argentine Tango Courses.

Many events are also held, such as a tango party or milonga and concerts featuring tango singers and musicians.

Every spring, Tiempo hosts the “Sakura Tango Festival”, which is attended by tango fans from all over Japan and around the world. In addition to these events, Tiempo's lessons allow you to interact with tango instructors and students from other classes.
