I’m learning tango with my sweetheart, do I need to change partners?


There is no requirement to change partners, but it is recommended that you dance with lots of different people, even if you have a main partner.

Generally in a class some people change and other people stay with their partner. If you don’t want to change just say so. In practicas and milongas, it’s best to change.

  • Tango can be frustrating, and one of the best ways to reduce frustration between partners is to take a break to dance with other people. (
  • With your most familiar partner, you have habits which may be shortcuts. When dancing with less familiar partners, you need to dance more precisely.
  • Make friends to socialize and study with!



Getting Started

Are you ready to start dancing Argentine Tango?

Of course there are courses in almost every town where you can meet other beginners. In case you are a bit shy and you’d like to start training and learning first at home, we have a beginner’s package. It includes 10 practice sessions, a book to get you excited (print or e-book), and a home page here at TangoForge with all of our resources for new dancers as well as a forum to ask questions. The practice courses are also useful in case you get very busy or need to travel for work and can’t make it to class. They’ll give you a way to continue improving steadily with or without group class.
