Argentine Tango classes and dances:
Providence Tango is a community of local dancers who collaboratively run the organization and hire great teachers. We are thrilled to be working currently with Angeles Chanaha (Argentina) and Kristian Velazquez (Uruguay). We offer classes every Friday followed by a practica. We also offer "Bootcamps" for beginners, occasional special topic classes and milongas.
For a full schedule and more information: www.providencetango.com and you can also find us on facebook.
Angeles and Kristian have infectious smiles and a great passion for tango. They are patient and extremely knowledgeable about the dance and music of Argentine Tango. Their love of tango and teaching are evident every week.
Angeles and Kristian world travelers and teachers, have successfully competed and have worked with tango "greats" around the US and abroad. They are, however, down to earth and humble and delightful to be around.
At intermediate level it’s rare opportunity to learn authentic tango structures from a leader and follower both able to observe & correct our execution. Many experienced dancers have said this is crucial more than knowing many figures. Kristian and Angeles teach true tango we can dance anywhere in the world.
Providence Tango is a great place to learn Argentine Tango. Award winning teachers that create a fabulous path to learning tango. The community and community events are fun and supportive. This is a fabulous way to learn the beautiful dance of Argentine Tango.
I’ve worked with Adam Cornett over the last few years in having him help me with my tango festivals (Portland ValenTango and McCloud BurningTango) and found him to be extremely friendly, helpful and organized. I can always count on him to get the job done right–whether it’s teaching, hosting and/or DJing. He is very well liked by the students and was rated as two of the top instructors at my recent BurningTango festival. He’s a great teacher and dancer and I highly recommend him.
New students are welcome to begin at any time, but we offer a 6 week beginner series. Private lessons are also available and can be arranged with the instructors, usually for a Friday before group classes start.
$20 for one class and practice time
$25 for both classes in an evening (intermediate and beginner level) includes practice time.
$5 for just the practice time
On occasion, we offer a milonga (tango dance party) instead of a practice. That will be a longer evening and will cost a little more.
