Tango in Athens 2004
Academia De Tango

Back Up Next

Academia de Tango is housed in an old neoclassical style building in old downtown Athens. It has squeaky stairs, nice areas for dance and conversation, and the most amazing balcony.

The Academia looks like a typical old Greek house
from the outside but is 100% Argentinean inside.
My friends Sophia and Panos teach
private tango lessons in Athens.
Sophia showed me her incredible new tango
shoes from Buenos Aires.
Oh, no! We missed the green suede!
The building was at one time housing a large family
that had no idea what will become of their
house 100 plus years after it was built,
The corridor is a good place for watching the dancers
in the dance hall that is on the door to the left.
The dance hall is small but cozy.
The floor helps to keep the line of dance!
These whimsical curtains lead to the parlor.
Where you can catch the latest gossip.
There is small but fully equipped bar.
However, the best hang out of the Academia
is the balcony in the back, The view is amazing.
From most places in Athens you can see the Acropolis.
All the lighting was redone for the Olympics.
The balcony is the best place for
a conversation and for smoking.
Luis will tell you his latest stories from Argentina.
The milongas end when the last dancer
runs out of cigarettes.
