tangophilia private lessons

For people that are just starting to explore tango, we firmly believe that most people derive the greatest benefit from the social environs of weekly group classes combined with lots of practice and social dancing, and we work to make sure that there are plenty of group options available for people. However, we understand that it can be difficult to find a class to fit your schedule.

For dancers with some experience, we also believe that the social milieu of class combined with lots of practice and social dancing will always provide tremendous benefits. At the same time, there are some aspects of learning and dancing tango that are more easily conveyed and understood in a smaller setting with focused instruction tailored to your needs.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced dancer, we offer a range of scheduling and pricing options so that you can study tango in the setting of a private or small group lesson.


Evening and weekend lessons are provided by Jason Laughlin. Lessons generally may be scheduled on the following days and times.

  • Monday nights: 6:30pm - 9:30pm
