Awaken the tango in you in a 7-day tango vacation in Buenos Aires   

What if I told you that you could:

    • Reconnect to your sensuality 
    • Explore intimacy
    • Become more confident at eye contact and flirting
    • Gain life-changing awareness about your own relationships patterns
    • Learn to walk in a new, sexy, “tango” way 
    • Have a tangasm!

And you could do all that while also having an amazing immersive vacation in the intoxicating Buenos Aires tango scene?

You say, God, that sounds amazing but I don’t know how to tango. Or I don’t know if I’m ready for the Buenos Aires milongas (where the tango addicts dance).

You don’t have to know how to tango. You can be a total beginner or have some tango or dance experience. You can be any age.

My transformative tango team of teachers and guides meet you exactly where you are in your tango journey  to give you the support you need to take your first tango steps in Buenos Aires.

You will move out of your comfort zone, improve as a dancer (even if you never danced before) and discover what tango has to teach you for your confidence, posture, relationships, sensuality, masculinity and femininity, trust, boundaries, and connection to yourself.

I give you the coaching you need to bring tango’s lessons for life home for you through words and they help you learn these lessons through your body.

SO . . .come away with me and my team, and discover yourself through tango in a 7-day tango holiday in Buenos Aires! We’re waiting for you!

You can learn Argentine tango anywhere but to understand the dance you have to come to the source. Buenos Aires (and Uruguay) is where tango was born among immigrants in a collision of cultures over 100 years ago.

Buenos Aires is where you will find huge passion in people who go out to dance tango every night at hundreds of elegant to casual milongas.

This is definitely a chance to wear the dress or suit you don’t normally get a chance to wear, or you can come in jeans.

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’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 to reflect and rest.

Why I created the Tango Adventure in Buenos Aires

Sasha Cagen, your transformative tango guide

I’m the author of the cult hit Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics and a life coach for smart, successful women (+ some quirky men) who don’t want to settle in any area of life.

Ten years ago I was working as a product manager at Internet startup in Silicon Valley but I found myself spiraling in negativity about everything: my career, dating, and life itself. I decided to make a radical choice to leave my dry job and life to move to Brazil. That decision set in motion a wet and wild ride that led me to discover tango in Cali, the world capital of salsa, in Colombia. My passion for tango led me to Buenos Aires, the Paris of the South, where I have lived primarily for the last four years.

I experienced so much healing and pleasure through tango myself that I wanted to make this experience more accessible to others. I created a unique methodology using tango as a tool for transformation so more people can have this experience of tapping into the healing power of tango.

I believe in body-based learning. Simply put, intellectual knowledge alone has the shelf life of milk.  Tango teaches about trust, intuition, listening, and listening to yourself. Tango can help with just about anything.

Some people who come on the Tango Adventure choose to work with me as their life coach before they come so we can build a relationship and deepens your insights through tango, grounding them back in your life at home. The choice is up to you. Either way you are going to find new insights for your life through tango, guaranteed!

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.”
