ASDC is near I-25 and San Antonio/Ellison. ASDC Website
Our philosophy is to inspire our students to enjoy the embrace and love for social tango, promoting the connection and improvisation between couples. During our more than 20 years of experience dancing and teaching Argentine tango, we’ve been developing our style like a permanent laboratory, experimenting with the movement of the body from the simplicity of life. We’re convinced that tango is for everybody. It doesn’t matter what age you are, what your background is, or if you have ever danced before.
We have participated in festivals and workshops in Europe, South America, North America, and Asia, winning 1st and 2nd place in worldwide tango championships in Argentina and Korea.
Since 2015, we have taught and performed at the most well-known festivals across the US, being invited year-after-year to teach again. We have also gone to emergent communities around the country, giving small workshops and sharing our teaching everywhere. — Paloma & Maxi
