Mike Eblen has been dancing and teaching tango for the past decade and has taught in many major cities across the United States, including New York City, Seattle, Portland, San Diego, Ann Arbor, and Los Angeles to name a few. He is known for connecting with his students through his use of comedy and tough love. His teaching puts a strong emphasis on connection and musicality and how connect those concepts to any level of vocabulary that his students are comfortable with.

Gypsy Pass

If you’re as crazy as we are, you’ll want to attend the entire weekend! You should purchase a super awesome Gypsy Pass for only $70 or $50 for college students! Plus, we can help to find you a local host in either city (first requested, first served basis). Contact us to request a host. You must purchase the Gypsy pass in advance by August 12th.

Pass Options

We know better than anyone that going to college puts serious financial restraints on the wallet. We also know that Tango helps reduce many of the stresses from college and it helps to build strong friendships. So, we are happy to offer $5 off every class and milonga. We also have a few volunteer spots available on a first requested basis.
