Guide to tango for Ballet Dancers

Tango for Ballerinas

You love to dance, but you seek something that’s a little kinder to your body and more social than ballet.

But you still want something very interesting and challenging. Tango may look easy, but it requires a high level of concentration and body control, just not so much strength and flexibility.

And you can dance as long as you can walk. With nice people. Welcome.

This guide is intended to help you understand Argentine Tango as a dance, from a ballet point of view.

I’ve written a guide to help you understand the differences, which will be interesting challenges for you.




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.
