About Argentine Tango


Tango is a powerful dance...

Established in 1996

Providing the finest quality dance instruction of the real, authentic Argentine Tango.  Makela is an highly experienced, professional teacher who trained extensively under the milongueros in her hometown, Buenos Aires.  Makela has specialized in teaching tango exclusively for over 20 years in Los Angeles, and Santa Monica, her new, purpose-built studio is conveniently located in the heart of Culver City. Instruction is available 6 days a week, for absolute beginners through advanced dancers, in both group classes and private lessons. The studio holds weekly dance events for socializing and dancing.

Tango can change your life! And experiencing the Tango journey with Makela has made all the difference. I find taking lessons with Makela to be inspiring, fun, and fulfilling. Her knowledge and focus on foundational basics and attention to good technique has me dancing with skillful confidence. Her classes and practicas cultivate a warm, friendly environment for tangueros and tangueras of all levels and the time there in the studio always feels like I am surrounded by family and good friends. That’s why I love Tango! Thank you, Makela!
