It’s more than a stamp on your passport. It’s life-changing learning.

Sasha Cagen, your transformative tango guide

My name is Sasha Cagen. I’m the author of the cult hit Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics and a life coach for smart, successful women.

I’m in love with tango and I now live in Buenos Aires, the Paris of the South.

Since 2014, I’ve been teaching women the magic of tango in Buenos Aires through this 7-day tango holiday. When you learn tango with me and my team, you learn the dance, the culture, the music–and how tango can inspire you as a metaphor for life and relationships. And a mirror for your own growth.

I have created a unique methodology using tango as a tool for transformation. Our Tango Adventure will help you reconnect to your sensuality, find your power as a woman, and gain awareness about healthy relationships. .  . through your body.

What you learn will be personal to you . . .

During this 7-day tango vacation in Buenos Aires, you will:

  • Take life-changing lessons + workshops using tango as a mirror and a metaphor to teach you about yourself, relationships, sensuality, and confidence.
  • Reconnect to your sensuality and your femininity. Rediscover parts of you that you that have been lost or suppressed.
  • Gain a safe space to explore boundaries, trust, vulnerability–all within the safe, melty container of tango
  • Inhabit your body with new confidence
  • Practice holding eye contact (Holding eye contact is a basic flirting skill. You may find yourself flirting and meeting more people after the trip!)
  • Learn what a tangasm is, how to have one, and quite possibly have one!
  • Get our support to get on the dance floor–quickly!

You’ll get an insider’s view of Buenos Aires

You will get way off the tourist bus as you get to know the intoxicating tango places, people, dance, and music we curate for you in this authentic tango safari.

You will live like a local quickly in the “Paris of the South” with our help as you discover a pulsing city of stylish people and extravagant architecture, wide boulevards and leafy parks, gastronomic delights, and of course, tango in the streets.

You get to travel alone-but-with-others, to share the experience with like-minded people, while you get a guided deep dive into Argentinean culture and all that is tango.

You’ll get to meet other adventurous women and all the cool locals who are part of the team.

You’ll also have time to spend on your own. We give you time to wander, discover your own treasures, and nourish yourself with alone time and rest.

What it includes

The Tango Adventure is a designed experience. You get to let go and go along for the ride because we do the planning to create this immersive transformative experience for you. On Day 1 at your orientation you get a schedule guiding you through the tango scene on a journey of cultural learning and self-discovery, full of surprises and characters to meet!What’s included:

    • 3 Group Dinners, two at local favorite restaurants (Welcome Dinner + Goodbye Feast) and a Gluten-Free Empanada + Malbec Night at Sasha’s home
    • 2 intimate workshops led by Sasha on The Essence of Tango and the Confident Tango Goddess. You’ll also learn the history of tango.
    • 3 1-hour private lessons with one of the best tango teachers in Buenos Aires Alejandro Puerta. (You will love the lessons–one woman called her lessons a little “slice of heaven”)
    • 1 psicotango workshop experience (some people call this workshop an immersion therapy experience that changed everything for them) with local psychoanalyststs
    • 4 guided outings to milongas, the beautiful places where people dance tango in Buenos Aires. We’ll visit traditional, elegant milongas, and alternative milongas with live tango music where we teach you the anthropology and codes while we support you to dance.
    • Two-hour taxi dancer (“dancer for hire”) to help you make your debut onto the dance floor at a Buenos Aires milonga (you’re going to feel empowered). You wouldn’t want to travel all this way with no guarantee of dancing, would you?
    • Tango shoe-shopping outing for practice shoes and elegant shoes to help you find the shoes to make your tango dreams come true
    • Delicious 1-hour massage to soothe your dancing muscles
    • Personal “concierge” help from Colleen to connect you with things you want to do in Buenos Aires: yoga, a street art tour, a museum, tourist sites such as La Boca
    • Orientation to the city, public transportation, and cabs plus a SUBE card you can use for public transport as desired
    • 1-hour Integration coaching session via Skype with Sasha after you go back home to talk about what was most resonant to you from your tango learning and dancing experience . . .and how to keep that tango spirit alive in your life at home, whether you have access to regular tango or not. This could be anything from learning to be in the moment and improvise at work to applying the insights you get about connection and relationships to your relationships at home.

Where you stay

Drawing on our insider knowledge from living in Buenos Aires, we make it easy for you for you to pick a place to stay. We recommend a fantastic boutique hotel in Palermo Soho with a great ambiance in a very chic and convenient, walkable neighborhood full of delights and close to all things tango.

  • We let you choose your room and pay directly so you can get exactly what you want.
  • The price at Hotel Costa Rica ranges from $40 to $75 a night depending on room size, time of year, and availability for the week you chose to come.
  • Staying at Hotel Costa Rica allows you to connect with the others on the adventure for breakfast and other meals and to share cabs and get to know each other. If you stay longer you can stay there the whole time or book an airbnb for the other time.
  • There are plenty of great restaurants and cafes in Palermo, including options for the vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free folks. We give you a list of local fave restaurants to try in your free time.

What Past Adventurers Say

“The trip to Buenos Aires was lovely, and in many ways, the perfect tango adventure. The itinerary created by Sasha is carefully planned, and considerate of a traveler’s need for downtime. She makes it exciting and she is there with you every step of the way. Her assistant Colleen was a dear and a treat herself, as was the rest of the cast of characters involved. I cannot tell you how much the little things I learned during the trip have impacted my everyday life. Alejandro’s lessons had a huge impact on me and have stayed with me.”

Sonya Gueretta 

San Francisco

I started at zero and now I can get out there on the dance floor and people are saying it looks like tango! I’ve had an amazing time and if you are thinking about coming definitely you should. The music is so passionate, and soulful, it’s undescribable seeing the live tango bands. Sasha has been very impressive on exploration of your own self and journey, how can use the experiences here to gain insights back in the real world. It’s been very insightful. Let go, learn and take it all in.”

Denise Breheny  

Los Angeles

“I would do the Tango Adventure again in a heartbeat!  It was the perfect balance between activities and time to explore alone. I enjoyed the dinners, lectures, evenings, and meeting Sasha’s friends. The true joy I saw in Buenos Aires was from people living very large lives. I appreciated the level of intimacy required from tango, the balance between owning yourself and yielding to your partner. I realized there are vital people dancing and living, no matter their age.”

Claudia Fiaschetti

San Francisco

“I learned about relaxing, relaxing my body, relaxing my thoughts, just being able to go with the flow of what’s happening. If you want to have a full-body-mind-and-soul experience that fills your five senses and even your sixth sense because you have to sense things happening around you come on this Tango Adventure.”

Megan Cramer 

New York, New York

Discovering tango has given me a new outlet that supports my need for touch – whether in a relationship or not. I’m much stronger in my values–I ask for what I want and I don’t settle anymore.Being in a different place really has a huge power with Sasha’s guidance. Tango has given me so many things –and I have Sasha to thank! That sense of myself, my power, my sensuality, and a greater feeling of owning my space in this big old world.”

Carissa Giblin 

Tampa, Florida

“II appreciated the sincerity and openness of our conversations. I met a lot of fantastic, beautiful, amazing women. I walked away from the entire experience feeling like a fabulous and interesting person!

Amanda Gellhouse 

Portland, Oregon

“I loved each one of the activities involved in the week: the dancing in the milongas, the lessons with Alejandro, the tango shoe shopping. I also loved Buenos Aires. It was great to discuss relationship subjects with Sasha. While over the years I have reflected a lot about my experiences both in relationships and being single, Sasha works on those subjects as her life’s work. So discussing with her brought new insights and was very enriching.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be too old (or young)?
Our participants have ranged in age from 28 to 65. Can you walk? You will do great. All ages are welcome here. One of the best parts about experiencing tango in Buenos Aires is you get to see a culture where all the generations mix and the over-50 set shines.
Do I need to have a partner?
No! Our Group Tango Adventures are designed for you to come as an individual.We have Tango Adventure for Couples too. If that’s you, get in touch to talk.
Will I master tango in a week?
No. This is not a boot camp, and you could never master tango in a week anyway. It’s a lifelong journey. Sasha’s Tango Adventure is a transformative experience full of surprises. You will deepen your connection with yourself, with others, and your tango experience whether you are a total beginner or have been dancing a couple years.
What is psicotango?
Psicotango is a workshop, a methodology, and a book created by two psychoanalysts and tango dancers Monica Peri and Ignacio Lavalle in Buenos Aires. They believe tango is the most healing intimate partner dance. Like Sasha, Monica and Ignacio help people find themselves through tango. Sasha includes this workshop in your 7-day tango vacation so you get to go deep in the culture and your personal journey in this special way too. This is a unique opportunity that most people don’t know about.
I'm a vegan. Or gluten-free. Will I be OK?
Yes, despite Buenos Aires’ deserved reputation as a meat-eater’s heaven, there are also many vegan places near where you will be staying. There are also gluten-free options for celiacs and gluten-intolerant folks. Sasha is celiac so she knows all about gluten-free Buenos Aires.
What if I never danced tango?
Can you walk? Can you hug someone? You can dance tango. You will do great. Our Adventures feature private tango instruction so our instruction will meet you exactly where you are at. Whether you are a total beginner or you have been dancing two to three years, the Tango Adventure will let you go deeper in the Buenos Aires tango culture than you could on your own. The workshops with Sasha also will give you a whole new framework for thinking about what tango gives you for your life.
