What you'll do

*** Due to the covid19 milongas are suspended until further notice. Pre-bookings for future trips or if your hometown is part of my tour from mid June (if flights allowed) are possible once Airbnb reopens in-person experiences***

Discover the real tango: Learn about its secrets, and live it as a local dancing at an authentic milonga.

Get an authentic taste of the Buenos Aires tango culture with a lesson to learn the basics of tango and some tips to feel comfortable if it's your first dancing experience (or further technique if it's not). Then visit a milonga (most of the times with live music or a dancing performance) where you can practice and watch experienced dancers to enjoy an authentic Buenos Aires tango night out.

Understand the soul of this dance from its history, the social codes it involves and its importance for the Argentinian culture. You'll get an insider look to what tango is really about, having the chance to experience it on first hand and not only as an observer, diving right into its natural environment: an authentic milonga.

* There's no need of previous experience.
* Solo travelers and queer couples are welcome.
* Most milongas last longer than the duration of the experience. You're welcome to stay.
* Contact me if you don't find the dates you need or to hire a taxi dancer (professional dancing partner).

I'm passionate about tango and travels. Helping people to understand tango as a way of life, to plan their trips, immerse into the local culture and rediscover themselves along their journey is something I truly enjoy.

Traveling in 32 countries so far was life changing for me, as much as dancing tango and researching on sociology of the body, which led me to get certified as tango instructor, yoga professor and dive into body therapies. It was an opportunity to learn other ways of doing and thinking.

I switched from being an university professor and project manager for international organizations, and founded tangoimmersion.com to dedicate full time to dance/movement therapy and tango dancing, teaching and hosting cultural experiences in Buenos Aires and abroad.

While I'm abroad, the experience is hosted by colleagues I fully trust.

Where you'll be

The experience starts with a personalized lesson at a private studio before going to a milonga.

We go to a different milonga each night. Most of the times in Palermo and nearby neighborhoods, or near downtown and San Telmo (feel free to ask about your dates if this is an important point for you).

When I'm abroad the lesson might take place at the milonga itself if my co-host is teaching there that night.

This is a must do while in BA if you are at all interested in experiencing authentic Tango and the instructor, Jessica, is a gem!! This was not touristy at all, and even after just one hour of lessons, my sister and I were able try out Tango at a Milonga. Jessica is super skilled, friendly and a great teacher! We ended up staying even beyond the scheduled 10-1 am because the Milonga Jessica took us to was having live music and a Tango performance. I would highly recommend inquiring about taxi dancers for an hour (if your budget allows), as I think this made all of the difference in having a dedicated and knowledgeable partner to step onto the dance floor with. We were nervous it would be awkward, but Jessica picks taxi dancers with experience and in our case, who could speak English. This was definitely a highlight of our trip!!

Jessica and the entire experience where amazing. I had never danced tango in my life and do not consider myself a great dancer, but she was a very knowledgeable and careful leader during the whole night that allowed me to flow with the Tango and really enjoyed the lessons and the milonga until 5 am (the experience ends earlier but the atmosphere and shows during the milonga made it difficult to leave the place :) Thanks Jessica for sharing your passion with patience, knowledge and making it so much fun!

Fue la primera vez que bailé tango y senti que podía hacerlo!!! Jessica es muy buena profesora y además nos llevó a una milonga increíble que no hubiéramos podido conocer de otra manera.

Me encantó la experiencia con Jessica! Fue la primera vez que bailé tango en mi vida y realmente vi que es muy fácil! Sólo hay que aprender a caminar y... ya estás bailando! Además, me gustó mucho conocer una milonga muy local, escondida en el barrio de Almagro, a donde nunca hubiera podido acceder si no fuera porque ella nos mostró que existía. Recomendadísima!

I have taken tango lessons before. This one was special, focused on what was important in order to enjoy/immerse yourself in the dance.

Jessica created an unforgettable experience! The lesson was personalized for my skills. She gave gentle but straightforward feedback that helped immediately. After a quick lesson, Jessica took me to a casual and comfortable milonga in a tango community where she is obviously respected and well liked.
