My name is Erick and I'm a professional travel writer and photographer. I've recently started a project where I visit a country for a month and learn how to do something culturally significant and then compete at it or try it professionally in an effort to motivate people to try new things and travel. My readers choose learning Tango in Argentina. I've been researching for about a month and keep running into dead ends and figured I would try here. Hopefully you all can help me with a few of my issues. 1. What kind of Tango is feasible to learn in 30 days and try to compete at? I understand like many other forms of dance there is competition and social versions of Argentine Tango. 2. As I'm trying to make this project as replicable as possible for my readers I want to choose the most economical option while also achieving my goal. Many avenues have directed me to private lessons but they seem quite expensive for not much instruction. Any recommendations? Maybe extensive group classes. 3. How receptive will Argentinians be to an American with zero tango experience at the social clubs? I dance Salsa, Merengue, and Bachata and know how introverted those communities can be in some places. 4. Are there frequent tournaments/events where I could showcase what I've actually learned for my readers? Thank you all very much for reading this and any help you may be able to provide.
