Seattle Tango Classes

Tony and Ilana  have been dancing tango together for more than 27 years. The beauty of their movement comes from their maturity in the dance, strong connection and deep respect for the music.

Tony and Ilana are inspirational instructors. They have the special gift of excellent teaching. They take a creative approach to tango, and combine musicality with a superb analysis and breakdown of the individual movements. Their classes are fun, informative, well thought out and presented.
