STUDENT COMMENTS

This school is my first and only, and although I visit other schools, attend various workshops, travel in the US and abroad and meet new teachers and students, I always return to it with the feeling that I am back home. This school gives me so much as a student and as a person that it will take a while to put this on paper, so I will try to be short. First and foremost, it brings amazing, talented, dedicated and unique teachers who travel from all over the world to give classes, workshops, performances and share their skills and their Tango wisdom with everyone! They are at the forefront of today’s Argentine Tango field and the fact that we can learn from them all is a miracle in itself. Secondly, it’s fantastic, truly inspiring yearly Tango Festivals that attract and unite people with different backgrounds, skills, and Tango schools, people who leave the festivals uplifted and inspired in so many ways! The atmosphere at the school is very friendly. When you come here, you are greeted with sincere hugs, tasty snacks and wine, and the level of Tango that is incomparable in so many ways! And lastly, it is my firm belief that the glue, the clip that holds everything together and keeps the classes and festivals on such a high level is its founder and director, Meredith Klein, with her dedication, feisty passion for Tango, and her most sincere desire to help the students and introduce them to the best that Argentine Tango world can offer – the most outstanding teachers, the best tango music, and the opportunity to unite with those who share in this truly blissful addiction which is Argentine Tango! --Kate

Seldom in our lives do we encounter things that surprise or exceed our expectations, but the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School does just that. Every aspect of the school--the teachers, students, artistic endeavors, events--is fantastic and engaging. Teachers Meredith Klein, Andres Amarilla and Damian Lobato (all internationally renowned) never cease to amaze you with their terpsichorean feats and ability to patiently transfer those skills to the average citizen. The student body is a true cross-section of society and displays a sense of community and family. Regardless of expertise or skill level, every student is helpful in assisting you master the magic of the dance... If you like to socialize or dance and have ever been intrigued by the mysterious allure of the tango, then this is the place for you. What does it do for me? It puts a spring in my step, a smile on my face and a song in my heart. It may do the same for you. -- Chuck

I want to thank you for the time and attention you've given to correct my mistakes before they become bad habits...

I'm glad I found you guys (and ladies). -- Joe
