Hot To Trot

Tango might look simple (think Gomez and Morticia in The Addams Family, minus the rose- in- the- mouth swapping and the whip). But it’s a complex ballroom dancing art. “It’s not a completed step, it’s a whole system of moves that you have to learn and then improvise on as you go along with your partner,” says Ellen Chrystal, who teaches the Argentinean way at The Sadhana Center (403 Warren Street) and, once a month, in the upstairs meeting space at Helsinki Hudson. A recent beginners session and three hour Milonga (i.e hootanany) there was very well attended; the lessons are free; the Milonga is $15.  It’s a sexy and classy sight to be seen. –Scott Baldinger

  1. Thanks for your perceptive response to our dance. The pictures really captured the mood and the flow of tango. I hope to fill the Helsinki ballroom with dancers of all ages at our milongas.
