The Traditional Argentine Tango

There are many ways of dancing Tango.
Caminito Amigo honors the traditional Argentine Tango, consisting of a firm embrace for a good connection, walking with elegance and dancing with feelings.

What is Tango?

“Argentine Tango is a feeling you dance to.
When you start to dance it,
you do not start with a step,
you start with a feeling.”

— Julia Elena, Artistic Director

In constant search of the traditional Argentine Tango, adhering strictly to the traditional style of Argentine Tango, and hosting and recommending only those teachers she feels adhere to this same style.

Beginners

Once you’ve successfully completed the introduction course, you will be at a beginner level for at least a year or two, maybe more.
Everybody is different and everybody has their own pace.
Part of dancing tango is respecting your partner.
Dancing with more experienced dancers and new beginners is part of the learning process.
Being able to adapt to your new method of walking is key and this takes time.

Capital Tangueros – Caminito Amigo:
Recommendation and Review from an old friend
How I danced the tango before I had health problems,
and how I will do it again with Caminito Amigo’s help

I am Enrico, an advanced Italian tanguero – tango dancer – living now in Washington DC.
Caminito Amigo is THE place here where you can experience the most original Argentine tango atmosphere, and learn the most authentic tango. They teach true traditional Buenos Aires style tango starting in the pre-beginner and beginner classes.

I have been dancing the tango for over twenty years.
I started in Buenos Aires with Osvaldo Cohelo, “El Profesor de Tango.”
He did not accept in his classes foreign students, only “porteños” – people born in Buenos Aires – were allowed. For me he made an exception, only because my Argentinean colleagues assured him that I was Italian, even if at the time I was living in the United States, in Florida.
I had then very intensive teaching from a young Argentinean lady in Denver, Colorado. Over the years I had lessons from the best Argentinean master teachers, and I reached a quite advanced level.

Three years ago I had health issues that prevented me from even dancing anymore. New medications now helped me with my health, but in the meantime I lost most of my muscle memory for my tango dancing.

I am starting again from ground-zero, taking pre-beginner classes at Caminito Amigo because I am sure that there isn’t a better place in Washington DC for me to recover the muscle memory I lost with a training that is respectful of the traditional way of dancing tango that I have already experienced for decades. It’s the ONLY way I consider for dancing the true tango I have already eperienced.

Local Tangueros Recommendations and Reviews

Loraine

Hands down the best place in the area to learn beginner’s traditional Argentine Tango. Unlike other places I’ve tried, Caminito Amigo is truly beginner-friendly and specializes in technique. Smaller sized classes give students a lot of personalized attention and the studio brings in world-renowned Masters for workshops each month. The teachers are friendly and great dancers themselves. I highly recommend!!
