Started in 2011 by Hubert Tassin from France, Bangalore Argentine Tango has evolved as a not-for-profit Tango school in South India’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan city. Trained in Italy, Hubert had a passion for the dance and a vision to bring quality Tango to his new home, Bangalore. The committed group of dancers he nurtured has now grown into one of the largest and most respected Tango communities in the country, recognised for its quality and authenticity by many international maestros.
From the very start, the school’s tone and approach is one of sensitivity, elegance and technical precision, rooted in building a true connection in the tango embrace. Following the true ethos of Argentine Tango, we aim to spread social Tango by not only teaching a dance form, but also building a friendly and respectful community, and an environment that can help each person find their own Tango.
The school is now helmed by some of Hubert’s senior students and visiting teachers. Jency Daniel, Shwetha Reddy, Liz Barraza, Abeni Tandon, Shreekant Deodhar, Neil Naik and Aditya Pandya take turns to teach basic and advanced elements of Tango during weekly classes. Juhi Ramakrishnan and Neil Naik are in charge of scheduling regular classes, organising milongas, practice sessions and hosting acclaimed maestros from all around the world.
Bangalore Argentine Tango continues to be driven by the voluntary efforts of our community. We are proud of our community-driven character, and we aim to nurture and preserve it. We believe that Tango is a gift that only becomes better when shared with others!
