I was living in Buenos Aires for a few weeks so I took the chance to learn a little about the famous dance, tango, which is hugely popular in Argentina and Uruguay. I managed to master the basics and learn a few things about tango culture, so I made this short video (3:33 long) to show my progress! Many thanks to my instructor María José (“Majo”). If you enjoy it, make sure to leave comments and subscribe to see my future videos!

    For the first time, you actually look serious. Makes you look very classy. :) Never thought you had such a style.

    Great video! You must have had an awesome tripod on some of those shots. ;) I recognized that awesome dance floor at La Viruta. I already miss it. Keep up the Tango when you go back home and other places.


    Excellent video, it really shows that you learned a little history and that you discovered the beginning of tango. I hope you continue dancing because it’s a great passion to have!

    As an honorary milonguera and tango snob, I approve! :-) ha ha

    Seriously, that’s a great job you did, and it’s courageous to get out there and dance in a milonga after a short period of time. Kudos! I hope you do keep learning! :-) You’ve got the potential and she looks like a great teacher.

    I’m kinda bummed that she didn’t have you in the close embrace right away, but that’s a matter of style preference on my part. It looks like you still caught the magic of tango!

    Here’s Pedro, the guy I told you about, who I work with.

    Hope to see you again soon! What a treat to be able know you!
