If you think you might be interested in Argentine Tango, our club is worth looking into. We offer information, lessons for beginners and dancing at Milongas (Dance Parties).
Argentine Tango is improvised, with every step being a spontaneous, creative discovery, and with the partners focused on each other and on the music. Every step is led and followed. It is about the connection. The follower, paying full attention every moment, and the leader listening to and accommodating his follower, can create an experience for both partners that have been likened to Zen meditation. The flow of the dance is dictated by the bodily communication between them. It is inherently intimate, on a deep level, and transcends thought and reasoning.
The Toledo Tango Club is dedicated to growing the Argentine Tango Community in the Toledo Area. We hold dances (Practilongas) every Friday night and we try to act as a calendar of events for Tango Dance Studios in the area. The site contains information on Tango dance lessons as well as information on the dance internationally. If you're interested in helping out we would love to hear from you.
Add your name to our mailing list and we'll keep you up to date on Toledo's Tango happenings. We send out regular newsletters with area Tango events and lessons. Hope to see you soon.
Your first lesson is always free and future lessons are only $10. We also have an informal little dance(Milonga) after each lesson.

From the time I started dancing tango, I have been in a constant state of fascination with the structure of tango moves and music.
In my real 9-5 life I own a small software company which is stressful at times. I also spend a fair amount of time tied to my keyboard, so tango is a welcome and healthy distraction.
My core philosophy on tango is that it should evolve and change as the community dancing it changes. I love all forms of tango that I have experienced so far, I so enjoy teaching others and learning from them as well. Tango is an incredibly diverse dance. There is always more to learn and there are always new friends to make.
When I teach I try to explain things clearly, explore the music and to take a step by step approach. Personally, I really enjoy salon, Vals and Nuevo the most, I personally prefer open embrace tango when there is room for it. But I also spend time exploring and adding close embrace techniques which are also beautiful to dance, close embrace techniques are a must if you're going to dance in crowded milongas.
