La Pantera – Tango Argentino in a Tropical Indoor Jungle

Dancing Tango is telling a story in the most beautiful language, the language of human connection, musical inspiration and physical bliss. You bring your story, we teach you the language.

~ Tango Classes in Zürich, Zug and Rapperswil. ~

We consider ourselves to be Tango linguists: observing and understanding the structure of successful dancers worldwide, we give you the tools to create your own tango story – instead of filling classes with random step combinations.

Due to thorough research, we understand precisely what it is about certain dancers that others simply love dancing with them.
In the case of leaders, this can happen with a minimal (but functional) structure just as well as it can happen with the immense repertoire of a professional dancer. Yet, neither repertoire nor professionality are a guarantee for success. (Some professional leaders have a hard time finding partners and they wonder why…). We will teach you exactly what you need to create a beautiful dance, while you will develop and sharpen your body empathy and musicality. Like this, you will make your partners happy, while moving around the dancefloor in an effortless and graceful way.
For the followers, the key is understanding how to perfectly arrange your body in the limited space of the embrace. By doing so, you are always connected to the floor, and hence in full possession of your corporal capacities. This enables you to accompany your partner gracefully thereby enjoying every step. Many teachers will tell women to „stop thinking“. We want you to think, we simple want to take you away from the future (you never know what the next step will be) and bring you in the perfect bliss of the present moment. Do not think where you go, but rather from where you do it.

Originally, our school was created in 2009 as CAT – Cuartito Azul Tango – in a blue (azul) painted self storage hall. By 2012, we had become the official branch of Carlitos and Rosa Perez from Buenos Aires. This is the couple of Epoca de Oro who significantly shaped the style and appearance of tango nowadays, by training innumerable professional couples and world champions.
In october 2019, we moved into our new home; a magnificent space conceived as a lush indoor jungle. In September 2022, we renamed our school La Pantera, in keeping with the tropical setting and our traditional symbol – the black cat. 

The lush setting – hundreds of tropical plants including bananas and fiddle leaf fig trees – create an instant feeling of wellbeing. We also sell plants and offer classes on indoor gardening – so you can recreate your own jungle at home. No green thumb? No problem: we can turn your office or living space into a green oasis, including maintenance. Enjoy life – it’s all about here and now.

More than a dance

Tango tanzen mit Jan, um in jedem Schritt neue Empfindungen zu erschaffen. Tanzen mit der Tangoschule Zürich La Pantera. Auch in Zug und Rapperswil.

Jan

As an architect, I was looking for a hobby which would be able to calm me down after a day full of stress and responsibility and allow me to use my creativity. Dancing tango is creating new sensations in every step.

Milena and Nathanael

Leading and following - the too completely different sides of tango. Both active, both to the same extent important, yet so complementary. And still - both of us take the full responsibility for the wellbeing of the couple. Being able to lead AND follow gives us deep insights for mindful teaching.

Ernst

I love making compliments to ladies (without ulterior motives), which they receive far too little. Furthermore Tango is my perfect cardio workout - without even realizing the effort.
Tango ist Meditation in Bewegung. Tango tanzen lernen in der Tangoschule Zürich La Pantera mit Olena

Olena

I love the harmony that arises from the ergonomic movement of the bodies in every single step. Tango is meditation in motion. It brings me into the state of flow and of enjoying the present moment.

"As someone with a technical mindset, occupied the whole day with abstract concepts, I love the opportunity to express myself. Tango brings the perfect balance to a busy life."
sich gegenseitig spüren, um gut zu tanzen, Tango in Zürich mit Jan und Sonja

Jan and Sonja

In our competitive society, tango is an empathetic oasis. We need to feel each other in order to dance well. Technique is additional - body empathy is the key.

Ernst, Sabina, Bernarto

Tango means belonging to a bigger family. Meeting friends and enjoying life. Making jokes, forgetting the stress of the day. And it offers a setting which allows you to dress up nicely if you wish, without feeling overdressed.

Miri

I love the aspect of nonverbal communication. Every step is a journey that we are taking together. Embracing, feeling each other and being carried away by the music.
