Claudia Cortes grew up fully immersed in folk dance, contemporary dance and rhythmic gymnastics in her hometown of Patagonia. She pursued her love of teaching at University of Magallanes and later found herself in Los Angeles. There, Claudia became an accomplished dancer in several disciplines including salsa. Out of pure coincidence, she stumbled upon social tango dancing and had a nostalgic moment remembering tango songs her mother used to sing to her as a child. Claudia was instantly inspired to return to South America and master Argentine Tango. When she returned to the Unites States, she became an inspirational young dancer; teaching and performing tango in festivals and workshops across the country. She has had the privilege dancing in China when the Rhythm and Passion dance company invited her in 2012. Claudia’s teaching draws from an academic background in athletics to emphasize correct technique, alignment and movement in the dance. Her dancing epitomizes the intensity, beauty and stillness of Argentine Tango.
Claudia never dreamed of being a DJ, but her passion and love for music and her desire to create an exquisite atmosphere for her friends lead her to begin managing music at local milongas. Starting in 2011, she has already become a popular name locally in Los Angeles as well as many other cities in the United States.
3-hours for $10 is the best deal in Long Beach! Come see why our fun and friendly environment makes everyone want to hang out and dance after class, even first time dancers!
We want everyone to dance! Even if it's your first day! At LBC Tango Club we say "Yes" to every dance! Ladies are welcome to ask men to dance, and men we want you to say yes! If you are an experienced dancer, please dance with the new people and help them get started in tango! That new person will always remember you! So lets get out and dance!
