Testimonials: “I didn’t think I could dance at all before I took a lesson at this school – I kept coming back because it was so much fun, and soon realized I was learning a lot – and quickly. The students and


teachers here are sensational, and the friendships I’ve made here are greatly treasured.

    My husband and I took a private lesson with Nicholas. We are experienced dancers in other forms of dance, but Argentine Tango was new to us. Instructor Nicholas was very patient, thorough, and willing to break things down so that we could apply his new instruction to amend and build on our previous dance experience. From his perspective, we may not have covered a lot of steps and variations, but we were deeply pleased to have gone in depth on the foundations of Argentine Tango. We were quite happy with the private class and plan to schedule more upon our return to NYC. (We're from Florida)
