Argentine Tango MasterCourse

It only takes 10 years to learn Tango

if your teacher is incompetent.

Learn to dance from
the ELEMENTS so
you can improvise
without memorizing.

Learn exactly which
MUSCLES you
need to use,
and train them.

Learn the
TOOLBOX
of technique
for all movements.

Learn at home
effectively with
solo exercises and
duo PRACTICE.

Lessons are the most concise, complete, detailed way of describing tango I have ever seen.

I have to say that this is the best tango class I’ve ever had. And I’ve been waiting for this information.

I took classes with lots of different teachers. Only TangoForge has given me what I need to understand the underlying principles of tango.

This last Saturday one of the best dancers in [my country] said I had improved a lot since last time we danced (2 months ago) which can only be due to using your digital course.

TangoForge Learning Resources

The TangoForge Argentine Tango Video MasterCourse uses scientific terminology for precise instruction without the physical touch of a teacher to accelerate your learning with effective independent practice. It includes the Biomechanical fundamentals necessary for every “style” of tango and the Improvisation systems which underlie musicality and agile floorcraft.

The KnowledgeBase is like Wikipedia for Tango. It has more than 175 entries covering movement elements and technique terms, hyperlinked so you can go immediately to anything you are curious about. It’s instant reference whenever you want to study.  The MasterCourse notes are hyperlinked to the KnowledgeBase.

The Exercise Center has physiological diagrams so you can visualize muscle chains, exercises for specific muscles, and text, video, and audio workouts for private solo home practice.

Our YouTube Channel encourages improvisation from the Elements by quickly reminding you of all the variations of any movement. These short <2minute videos don’t include any instruction, just inspiring possibilities. FREE.

Stop memorizing sequences*
and start improvising from the elements of Tango
*or being annoyed with yourself for not being able to remember them.
