Argentine Tango with DanceTangoTV
My name is Angel Prince; I am the founder of DanceTangoTV, an online Argentine Tango lesson website.
Ten years ago I was living on the Big Island of Hawai‘i and had recently fallen in love with the Argentine Tango. But surprise—there really wasn’t very much Argentine Tango happening on the island. Looking for opportunities to continue to learn and to grow, as both a practitioner and an educator, I traveled to Buenos Aires to immerse myself in the culture of Argentine Tango. While there, I took as many tango lessons as I could, and I danced for as long as my feet could handle it. I loved the city and the culture so much that I ultimately ended up living there for over half a decade.
During my time in Argentina, I came to realize that the best Tango teachers were there, hands down, and in abundance. With this realization, I found myself asking this question over and over: How can someone in a rural US town, or a remote island like Hawai‘i Island gain access to the level of instruction I had access to in Buenos Aires?
Then it hit me—bring these fantastic dancers and instructors from Argentina to them.
The easiest way for someone that has little access to tango instruction is to travel to the teachers. Realistically though that type of trip isn’t always possible. Buenos Aires is a long-distance and pricey trip for some tango lessons—but totally worth it! Now with DanceTangoTV, the teachers come to you. High-speed internet makes this all possible. There is no need for any planes, trains, or automobiles with a site like DanceTangoTV. People anywhere now have access to the best and brightest Argentine Tango dancers. Freed from language barriers, financial constraints, and time obligations someone could learn whenever and wherever is convenient for them. All at an affordable price.
In addition to using DanceTangoTV as a platform for learning, I had a vision of also using the site as a way to display and showcase the culture of Tango and Buenos Aires to those who might never make it there. Slowly but surely, using the talents of the city in the form of its teachers, videographers, musicians, and designers DanceTangoTV was built.
I am delighted to announce that it is now possible to take Argentine Tango classes online with the masters of this beautiful dance on DanceTangoTV. Classes of all levels are available, with more added all the time. We link to all the music used on the site if you would like to hear more or purchase. Our goal is to be at the heart of the Tango scene in Buenos Aires and to bring our subscribers the latest happening on its dance floors with the newest and freshest steps, in the music, as well as tango fashion and clothing. I hope this profoundly connected dance and scene leaves you wanting more, as it has me.
