Argentina, Uruguay…these are the capitals of the Latin tango. And Boulder? The city may soon join their ranks, thanks to this month’s debut of the Boulder Tango Studio. The spot’s founders and world-renowned tango stars Gustavo Naveira and Giselle Anne (pictured) have danced together for 18 years, helping shape an entirely new genre of the sizzling dance—and now they’re bringing it to Boulder. ¶ Couples and singles can learn the basics with beginner classes, while more experienced hip-shakers can attend tango seminars held four times a year ($400 for singles, $700 per couple), during which they’ll receive pointers from the expert pair. “Everybody is going to discover something strong about themselves,” Naveira says. “You feel really powerful being able to establish that connection with your partner.” Goodbye, fleece; hello, fringe.
In Person: Catch the world’s top tango-ers, including Naveira and Anne, at the Boulder Tango Festival, October 4 to 6.
