Tango is now in Old Palace!
Make your vacation different this time and join us in Tango!
Tango Argentino originally is a social salon dance that was found since 1850 in Buenos Aires for the reason that people can socialize, meet each other and have great time, since then Tango has grown, evolved, spread all over the world and became now one of the most attractive trends still for the same exact reasons. Now we have a surprise for our guests, its exclusive for Old Palace Resort and not available elsewhere in the area. Tango Argentino now is in Old Palace. Learn to dance with our professional Tango instructor Mounieb and his team during your stay with us and discover the Tango dancer inside you!
Good news is Tango is a social dance for couples and also singles, it can be learned at any age – so it is including the elderly. You don’t need to have a special fitness level or a special body type to dance Tango. It really is as simple as that: “if you can walk – then you can Tango!”
There will be 8 hours of Tango lessons on four days in-a-row 2 hours each, followed on the fifth day by our classy Tango party – where you can show how much you already have learned, dance with your couple or dance, socialize and team up with your new friends and Tango mates you have met during your lessons in a fun magical atmosphere.
Tango is loved by dancers as much as by the audience for its beauty, drama, passion, inspiration and excitement. Why just sit and witness while you can join and be a part of this magical atmosphere!
