Bueno Aires: Tango

Bueno Aires: Tango

When on the dancefloor in Buenos Aires, one of the first things you’ll notice is that compared to the locals, you move like a blind teletubby. To rectify this highly-embarrassing situation, you need get your gringo arse to a tango lesson immediately. If you’re in the city for enough time, you’re best off best trying to find a cheap local class; if not Complejo Tango is allegedly the best tourist-friendly company in the business, offering a $120 package that includes a lesson, dinner and a show. After an hour of very hands-on demonstrations and cringe-worthy interactions between you and everyone else in the class, you’ll actually feel like you’re getting the hang of it, and will be presented with a certificate to prove it. Although the food served is fairly average, the show is fabulous, and if you eye-fuck the dancers long enough, you may be selected to go up on stage for a cheeky kiss (tried and tested advice). An envelope is passed around afterwards for you to tip, so make sure you bring some very small change or monopoly money.
