This was my first real Argentine tango experience. Martin escorted me to a tourist friendly milanga and was very kind as he helped me better understand the code of the milonga and the dance lesson. He even took pictures of me dancing. He danced one set with me and helped me understand how to do the dance assuring me I didn't step on his feet too much! He also answered ally questions about the culture and the communit. I would certainly recommend his services to anyone looking to give it a try.
