Our teachers – Judit & Lucas

“Teaching is more than imparting knowledge, it is inspiring change”

Our passion is Argentine Tango. Our aim is to make you experience the pleasure of dancing.
With more than 20 years trajectory, we do our best that our students live the beauty of dancing day to day, in all our classes.

Our (short) story

2014 was the year when Lucas and Judit met and had their first but definitely not last dance together in Buenos Aires.  By that year, he had 22 years’ experience in tango and Judit had been dancing for 14 years. They were coming from two very different background – Lucas was born in Argentina and trained by the most renowned masters (most importantly Mingo and Esther Pugliese, Gustavo Naveira and Mariano Chicho Frúmboli) and Judit was born in Budapest and had a strong classical dance background. Yet they both had the same passion for tango and decided to work together to transmit the spirit and knowledge accumulated by the vibrant energy born between them.

After just a couple of months of working together, they already performed in various milongas and festivals in Buenos Aires (as El Yeite Tango Festival and the prestigious C.I.T.A). They spend the greatest part of the year in Budapest where they have regular courses and from there they have the possibility to travel on the weekends to different cities in Europe where they perform and teach.

More about Judit & Lucas


Milongas every night together with local dancers on different, scenic locations and live DJs

Five evening milongas on four different venues! Depending on the Covid-19 situation, we will try to organise the milongas together with local tangueros. In addition, during summertime, you will be dancing outdoor in the Royal Castle or along the Danube River in the most magical scenery!

If you choose our NICE TO HAVE package we guarantee you a local, experienced tango dancer ( with EU Covid Certificate) to accompany you for the first hour of the evening milongas. 

Live Dj music and on our farewell milonga we will have a special performance by our teachers.

City programs

Private city tour by bus

Budapest is one of Europe’s great cultural capitals.

Over the past few decades, Budapest has re-emerged as one of the continent’s iconic cities. Split by the Danube and many bridges connect the two parts. Meet your guide at your hotel and begin the program in Pest.

Drive along the elegant Andrássy Avenue, the “Champs-Élysées” of Budapest. Continue to Heroes’ Square, representing 1,000 years of Hungarian history. Going through the historical Jewish district admire the neolog synagogue. Across the river, explore the more traditional Buda side of the city. Visit the Citadel on top of Gellert Hill and pulsate together with the city from the most iconic viewpoint. Arriving to the Castle District up on the hilltop, enjoy the panoramic view of the city from the Fishermen’s Bastion and Matthias Church (the coronation spot of several Hungarian monarchs). Returning to your hotel driving along the riverbank you can take pictures of the beautiful Hungarian Parliament.

Walking tour in the city centre

Budapest always was a beautiful city but the real revival of the capital started after the political systemic change. Explore Budapest’s hidden gems by walking around the Jewish quarter with its triangle of the extraordinary synagogues and Andrássy Avenue.

From the Jewish quarter, we will walk to Andrássy Avenue, which is famous for its architecture and high fashion shops. At the end of the tour, you can enjoy a little time in one of the most famous cafés in Budapest.

Visit the Wine Town

The cellar system in Budafok – near Budapest – is a more than 120 km long, still functioning coherent cellar system. The Záborszky Wine Cellar is located in this special city. This venue provides a fascinating insight into the culture and the history of winemaking, which is the most impressive symbol of Hungarian wine traditions. The cellar system of Budafok is one of the most famous cellar labyrinths in Europe. The most emblematic part of the venue is the Wine Street, where typical landscape architectural features from 10 winemaking areas in Hungary are merged into a single street. During the walk in the cellar, guests can enjoy wine tasting and a delicious Hungarian lunch at the end of the exhibition.


Dinner cruise on river Danube with live music

Admire the lights of the city from aboard our luxurious catamaran.

Gorgeous, handpicked ingredients, diverse dishes, ice-cold drinks, all accompanied by live piano music. Spend two unforgettable hours on board and relish the main sightseeing experience of the Hungarian capital. Check out the sights of the city that are the perfect combination of Budapest’s historical past and the ever-changing image of the modern metropolis.
A panorama that provides even the most seasoned ‘Budapesters’ with novelty.

Ticket includes:

  • 3-course dinner
  • 2 hours evening sailing on the Danube
  • Live music

Rudas Turkish Bath

Rudas Bath is one of the oldest, over 300 years old, still functioning institutions, not only in the capital but also in the country. The Bath has its own indoor swimming pool, which is the warmest thermal bath in Budapest, with 29°C.
The elongated building of the bath consists of three parts: the area in the south was completely rebuilt in 2014 as a wellness area. Its charm is the outdoor pool, established on the southern part of the roof, from where the bathers can observe the traffic at the port and the Danube.

NLP workshop

To assist the tango learning process, we included in the program a scientific method called NLP (neuro linguistic programming). However, both programs works independently as well.

Increase your sensitivity and sharpen the invisible sensors. Have you met someone before and had the feeling that you know each other already? There is a reason for that! You can learn how “read” your partner better and to connect quicker on a conscious and subconscious level.

  • Day 1. Self-reflection. Likes dislike.
    Finding and anchoring moments of excellence. Achieving a positive state of mind. Collection of favourite moments of now and of the past.
  • Day 2. Pacing leading – cross-mirroring, indirect mirroring.
    How to be the best of myself. On the dancefloor and outside.
    If I was her / him. How to become your own hero. Looking at winning strategies.
  • This workshop will only be organised in the case of at least 4 participants to enter or your entry fee will be returned on the spot.
