bcarneiro has indicated that this thread is about Argentina

Hi, i'm portuguese and i've been living in Argentina for 4 years now. I've discovered tango and decided to learn how to dance. This year i decided to start working with tango and tourists. I want to organise groups to travel and learn how to dance tango in 1 week, maybe. Do you think it could be an interesting project? Any tip is welcome. Thanks!!

Hello Carneiro:

As a local, I just can think you're joking:

1 - Tango -real tango dance- is not possible to learn in 1 week. Unless you want to spread a bad idea of Tango, or lie to tourist.

2 - There are hundreds Tango professors in BA doing for many years
what you try to do, but taking the right and with years experience.

Just to have an idea, put in a search engine 'yango classes Buenos Aires".

And BTW, for groups REALLY interested to come to BA for Tango (not beginners), I use to reccomend --

Hi JC,

thanks for your reply. Maybe i didn't make myself very clear. At the same time, it's just an idea for now. I don't plan to teach tourists how to dance in one week. I've been learning tango for more than 3 years, and i still feel i have a lot to learn. What i meant was: you have several 'one day tango tour' in BA. Would it be interesting to dedicate a whole week to tango and other touristic issues, but with tango lessons everyday?? Feel free to leave your comments, because anything will be useful to start this project (or not). Thank you.

Hi, Juanka!!!

Saw the link you sent me. Thank you very much for the recommendation. Heard this hotel (Bauen) used to be an excellent hotel, although, nowadays, it's in a very ugly part of the city becasuse of the constant manifestations in Plaza de Mayo, and wen't there to check the hotel and it's in bad condition. Is there any other place you would recommend me?? I was thinking about renting a dance studio to have classes, instead of using the hotel for this.Is it a bad idea?? Thank you!!! Barbara

Hi Barbara, i've danced tango for a while (stopped lately due to other priorities). I learned in Montreal, but went to B-A to visit family and dance there. I think many dance studios are already planing trips like the ones you think in doing... From abroad and locally too, and on a regular basis. The studio where I was learning in Montreal where organizing trips in BA every year, and sometimes twice a year... And they where not alone!!

1 - Hotel Bauen IT NOT near Plaza de Mayo.

2- You cannot check the hotel becaus e was reopened in december.

So PLEASE don't write things you don't know.

Last Bye

Maybe there was a misunderstanding. There's no need to be rude. This is suposed to be a place to help people not to treat them like this. Thank you anyway for the tip. Won't bother you again. Bye.
