"The owners/instructors/milonga hosts: Daniel Noce & Ramona Nita. Friendly, welcoming, smiling, passionate about Argentine Tango, SEXY! I hope to spend many happy hours on their dance floor pulling out all the Tango instruction that I KNOW I've taken, but is lodged in my brain, dusty from disuse. I was happy to have my silver sequin dance shoes back on my feet, even if I was stumbling a bit."

"Not only is this a great place to learn the Argentine tango with the best teachers in Chicago, but for those looking for a venue for a smaller wedding reception or private party, Tango Che is a wonderful and affordable option. In fact, why not have a Tango themed wedding?"
Eric W. | The Loop, Chicago, IL
"Our wedding was in ten days and my fiancee and I needed a crash course for our first dance. We were able to book four private lessons at Tango Che. Let me also state that we are NOT good dancers.
Ramona and Daniel were tremendous teachers. They laughed with us, encouraged us, and provided us with a simple, yet fun, routine. Once the wedding dust settles we plan on taking up the tango. We will certainly be back to see the fine folks at Tango Che!"
