Philadelphia Argentine Tango School

2030 Frankford Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19125, USA



The Philadelphia Argentine Tango School has been offering superb instruction in Argentine tango to beginners through professional dancers in Philadelphia for the past six years. In addition to group and private lessons, the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School offers twice-weekly prácticas, monthly milongas and occasional larger events. We have organized four Philadelphia International Tango Festivals (2010, 2012, 2013 and 2014), and have hosted three major tango bands directly from Argentina, Otros Aires (2009), Tanghetto, (2010) and the Alejandro Ziegler Quartet (2012 and 2013), as well as workshops with many world-renowned tango instructors. In addition to teaching in Philadelphia, our instructors regularly travel to teach and perform worldwide. In the past three years, Philadelphia Argentine Tango School instructors have taught in Austria, Poland, Russia, Cyprus, Lebanon, Brazil, Argentina and throughout the US. In 2009, School Founder Meredith Klein established a permanent studio in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. Since then, the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School has been enthusiastically collaborating with other local arts and development organizations to help build a robust Frankford Ave Arts Corridor.

    This school is my first and only, and although I visit other schools, attend various workshops, travel in the US and abroad and meet new teachers and students, I always return to it with the feeling that I am back home. This school gives me so much as a student and as a person that it will take a while to put this on paper, so I will try to be short. First and foremost, it brings amazing, talented, dedicated and unique teachers who travel from all over the world to give classes, workshops, performances and share their skills and their Tango wisdom with everyone! They are at the forefront of today’s Argentine Tango field and the fact that we can learn from them all is a miracle in itself. Secondly, it’s fantastic, truly inspiring yearly Tango Festivals that attract and unite people with different backgrounds, skills, and Tango schools, people who leave the festivals uplifted and inspired in so many ways! The atmosphere at the school is very friendly. When you come here, you are greeted with sincere hugs, tasty snacks and wine, and the level of Tango that is incomparable in so many ways! And lastly, it is my firm belief that the glue, the clip that holds everything together and keeps the classes and festivals on such a high level is its founder and director, Meredith Klein, with her dedication, feisty passion for Tango, and her most sincere desire to help the students and introduce them to the best that Argentine Tango world can offer – the most outstanding teachers, the best tango music, and the opportunity to unite with those who share in this truly blissful addiction which is Argentine Tango!
