With Tango, important to find teachers whose dance philosophies are simpatico with yours!
Here are some amazing teachers, both solo and partnered.
Teachers I have met and worked with
Paloma & Maximiliano
Originally from Chile now residing in Miami, Florida.
Our philosophy is to inspire our students to enjoy the embrace and love for social tango, promoting the connection and improvisation between couples. During our more than 20 years of experience dancing and teaching Argentine Tango, we’ve been developing our style like a permanent laboratory, experimenting the movement of the body from the simplicity of the life. We’re convinced that the Tango dance is for everybody. It Doesn’t matter the age, the background or if you never danced before.
Liz & Yannick Vanehove
Liz & Yannick currently reside in Hautefort, France.
Liz and Yannick Vanhove started dancing Tango together when they were teenagers.
Since 2002 they have spent years learning and uncovering the best kept secrets this elegant dance has to offer, always driven by an insatiable thirst for knowledge and tradition.
Tall, elegant, harmonious and beautiful … they love everything about Tango and teach it with generosity, humility, patience and a touch of humor, always with great emphasis on the technique and the naturalness of the movement. Their dance expresses the great connection that unites them, in search of simplicity, elegance and musicality in every dance. Their Tango Salon performances are 100% improvised.
DANIELA & HERNAN
Currently residing in Chicago, Il, USA
We’re both born and raised in Buenos Aires Argentina and met more than 15 years ago at La Viruta (the biggest tango school and milonga in BA). We taught there for many years, as well as we learned from some of the more renowned maestros and milongueros.
What an amazing time that was. We were lucky to enjoy a glorious time in tango, dancing almost every night with a lot of people and watching amazing performances from the best dancers.
One day… our dream came true. We were invited to teach in the US. We toured around North America. Many doors opened for us as we were invited to participate in many important Tango Festivals in the US, Canada and Mexico.
Currently, Hernan and I are settled in Chicago, Illinois and have our own Studio called “Almagro Tango”.
We focus on social tango, paying special attention to the fundamentals, so the students have a clear idea of how to use those elements while improvising.
We believe that understanding the music and working on musicality and interpretation is a must do, to achieve a good level of dancing.
But, the most important of all:
We all need to enjoy this and we put our hearts to make people happy through Tango!

“We have been dancing, travelling and living together since 8 years.
In 2012 we started our shared adventure, both born in Chile, we started our project working in Buenos Aires, in its milongas, theaters and shows.
We strongly believe that tango is like the culinary art, there are styles that you may like or not, but you will always find an inimitable hug and an unmissable tanda.
We recognize ourselves as constantly changing dancers, given over to the music, the audience and each other.”
