Guided Practica
The guided practica in Taos, and very soon in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, is like a semi-private class. It has indeed been instrumental in helping students practice what they’ve learned with others. Either come by yourself and choose a partner, or bring your favorite person to practice with. Space is limited to 8 couples in Taos. Confirmation is necessary to avoid the lack of space!

Hours are subject to change due to weather conditions. Sign up for email notices of changes to schedule at: ellatidodeltango @

Please call 505-920-9987/ 575-779-0712 or email:
ellatidodeltango (@) to confirm your private lesson or to attend the practica/ group. Cancellations: 24 hours in advance!

All our classes are fragrance-free due to allergies.
