With an emphasis on Argentine and other Latin American traditions, we aim to foster personal wellness while promoting an appreciation for Latino cultures.

The Youth Program at Esquina Tango uses Latin Dance-and its influences, such as Cumbia, Tango, Samba among other dances, as the foundation of its program. Participants will learn specific dances, rhythms, footwork, carriage, and frames of selected dances. A multi-cultural approach to the curriculum emphasizes community and individual expression while studying various dances. The curriculum is developed by a team of dance educators with extensive experience working with youth in diverse populations. Participants enjoy opportunities to express themselves and develop peer interactions in a positive environment and the classes culminates with a ‘showing’ for parents and invited guests.
