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.

Strictly Tango NYC offers a unique tango experience for the LGBT community and their allies in the NYC area. We teach traditional Argentine tango in an open environment that encourages you to dance beyond the traditional male/leader and female/follower roles. These gender roles dissolve so you can feel comfortable to choose freely what role to dance and who to dance with.  We design our classes around the fundamentals so that you can begin to enjoy the tango dance experience immediately! Sign up now to experience our open role classes and special events!


At our special Rainbow Tango Mixers, whether you’re straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, you will enjoy dancing tango without traditional gender fixed roles. Rainbow Tango promises a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Experienced dancers as well as beginners are welcome. Cash Bar. No partner necessary, but wear comfortable shoes – smooth soles preferred.

Our Rainbow Tango mixers are coming back on January 2015

    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)
