La Viruta has good classes which cater for all standards of dancers and keep the tempo going with good humour and tolerance. The dance floor is extremely good (as good as Canning in my opinion) and the dancers are respectful and well-mannered. The service is...More

It's not a very glamorous place. It's just a basement, food is horrible and you not gonna get a good cocktail (stick to beer and wine - also, it's cash only). But it's true that's this is where "average people" come to dance and learn...More

There are classes for all levels and not just tango, but salsa (rueda/casino), bachata and rock. Check their website for the classes schedule. You pay just once and can take all the classes of that day and stay for the milonga.

This place was very nice to visit and take some classes or just watch. After midnight is FREE entrance but it's not advertised a lot about that . The service was good and the place was clean and safe.
