Let’s make your tango dreams come true with a Custom Tango Adventure in Buenos Aires

You want to discover tango at the source in Buenos Aires by living it, feeling it, and dancing it.

We make that dream come true for you when we cocreate your Custom Tango Adventure with you based on your dates and your unique desires and needs. We offer custom adventures for people who can’t make the group dates but who want to have the Tango Adventure experience.

Drawing on our years of experience in the tango scene, we connect you with tango experiences that you would never find on your own. You have tango in Buenos Aires insiders planning this experience just for you.

We use tango as a tool for transformation, so it’s never just about the steps for us. We want you to have an incredible experience that takes you out of your comfort zone — not too much, not too little — with just the right amount of support so you feel taken care of.

Our team takes care of the curation, planning, scheduling and payment so you get to just show up and go along for a ride in Buenos Aires tango. We take the reins on logistics and curating your experience so you can focus on enjoying your experience in Buenos Aires.

The beauty of Buenos Aires is that it’s a huge city that still has hidden gems. Many milongas, teachers, or other interesting suggestions you can only discover through word-of-mouth or by simply walking by them. This is also the trouble with Buenos Aires for visitors. It’s hard to get past the surface when you are new to the scene.

When it comes to tango in particular, there are a million and one suggestions online, and it’s impossible to know which ones are any good. That’s where we come in! We create a totally personalized experience, based on your desires for your time here, and connect you with people and places you wouldn’t find otherwise.

We bring together the best people, places, and of course, tango, in Buenos Aires. You’re getting access to knowledge Sasha has picked up through her 7 years dancing, teaching, coaching, and living here.

Lucky for you, Sasha has sorted through the good, the bad, and the ugly, and puts together a totally unique experience of the absolutely excellent.

You have the option to work with Sasha in the Tango For Life Coaching Program too

If you want, you can even work directly with Sasha as your Tango for Life Life coach and establish a relationship before you come to Buenos Aires so you start stepping out of your comfort zone at home and then bring these changes back with you to dance in your life at home on and off the dance floor.

“What a beautiful, transformative experience! For me, this was an ideal introduction to tango and tango culture in Buenos Aires. I feel Sasha arranged an ideal set of experiences that allowed risk and growth in a larger container of safety and inspiration. Take this trip and rediscover pleasure, embodiment, and connection.”

Sasha Cagen

Sasha Cagen

Chief Curator + Coach for those who choose Tango + Transformation

I’m a writer, a life coach, and the founder of the Tango Adventure. Tango changed my life and I know it can change yours too. I’m most well-known for my first book Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics and I’m currently at work on a memoir.

I was born in Rhode Island, went to college in New York City, and moved to San Francisco for many years until I got burned out in Silicon Valley and left to explore a different life in South America. I’ve been living in Buenos Aires off and on since 2012 and I created this experience for you based on the magic I have found in Buenos Aires tango.

In the Tango Adventure, I make sure you are having amazing experiences by creating the schedule and the team. For those who work directly with me as a coach, I help you to connect the dots on what tango is revealing for you in your life. Tango is a very powerful tool for awareness, and I love to help you uncover what tango can teach you for your life for your confidence, relationships, and sensuality.

I’m Tan, a photographer, videographer, and director of photography for cinema projects from Istanbul. I moved to Buenos Aires when I was invited to document the making of a movie in Buenos Aires, and I stayed. If you choose to do a Tango Goddess photography  sessnionin the streets of Buenos Aires and/or at the milongas, or a video of you dancing, I’ll be your photographer/videographer capturing you at your best. I made the video “Tango Big Night Out” with Sasha, so if you watch that video on this page you can get a sense of my visual eye!

Colleen Fitzgerald

Tango Adventure Assistant

I am a contemporary dancer and choreographer from Connecticut but now call Buenos Aires home. As an undergrad at Bates College I studied Dance and Anthropology which eventually led me to discover tango in Buenos Aires and pursue a thesis project on the rich culture inhabiting the dance. What I love most about tango is its social context, full of people of all ages, nationalities, and backgrounds dancing together and learning from each other. I coordinate our group and custom adventures, and during the Tango Adventure I will assist you in making the most of your time in Buenos Aires: visiting tourist sites, finding neighborhood cafes, getting in some shopping, or just being an ear to listen. . . whatever you need!

Transformative Tango Guide

I am a tango dancer and teacher graduated from the National University of Arts in Buenos Aires and Life Coach certified by the ICF. After studying architecture for 7 years my life changed with tango with many personal and social discoveries. My goal is to plant the seeds of tango in you so that a new way of looking at and sharing with others can grow. I invite you on a tango trip where music and hugs will be our flow with a context of security and confidence so that you can live your tango journey in your own way.

Milonga Guide

I’m Joe, a writer, translator, teacher and traveller from Manchester, England. I worked in journalism in the UK for several years after university writing for the Guardian and the Glossop Chronicle before deciding I needed to see the sun. A transfer opportunity in 2011 brought me to Buenos Aires, where I expected to stay for a year. It’s hard to say which I fell in love with most – the immense city, its people or its most famous dance, but together these things have kept me here longer than I could have imagined.

Tango has become an ongoing process of discovery and a major passion that’s led me do my fair share of research into the history, orchestras, and myths and legends around the dance. I love sharing this knowledge with the guests on our adventures, but most of all I love seeing our guests find things for themselves when I accompany them on and off the dance floor.
