Argentine Tango For The Absolute Beginner

Tango - Continuing Education at Seattle Central College

Student Reviews

"In my estimation Ilana Rubin and Tony Fan are absolutely Seattle's best tango teachers. They have been studying, dancing and teaching together for over 10 years, and it shows."

"Tony and Ilana break down the moves and patterns of tango in such a masterful way that it's impossible not to succeed in their classes. Their explanations are clear, and they work their students through each part of the moves and patterns they have demonstrated. Few dance teachers can do this as well as they do -- helpful, encouraging, smart, patient, good communicators."
