The Tango Challenge

An intensive 12 week initiation into social tango dancing

$150 monthly tuition includes everything you need to become a bona fide tango dancer:

  • An Oxygen monthly pass ($100 value) with over 60 hours of tango instruction & dancing every month.
  • A special weekly course on tango survival skills with Oxygen founder Mitra Martin.
  • A weekly practice buddy, with a few years of dancing experience, to help you get started dancing socially.
  • A monthly private lesson with an Oxygen teacher.
  • A graduation performance (optional).


I absolutely needed the cumulative structure, the immersion, the camaraderie, the commitment, the focused, ongoing attention from a patient and sensitive teacher. 
-Sarah (Tango Challenge graduate)

The Tango Challenge gave me a sound tango foundation in the mechanics of tango movement, mind/body awareness, and, most importantly, set me on a path of continual learning of this dance."
