There is no better place to explore tango than Buenos Aires
To get inside the fascinating culture of the milongas. To hear the passionate music. To dance like a local. But if you come for a week and don’t know anyone it can be hard to break into a dance community or know where to start. Who to study with. Where to go.
The Solo Chica Tango Adventure Itinerary is your passport to insider experiences in Buenos Aires
The 7-Day Solo Chica Tango Adventure itinerary is based on 9 years of my lived-it secrets in Buenos Aires and 6 years of leading Group Transformative Tango Adventures.
Like a chef who lived every recipe, I give you days that are travel recipes for tango bliss.
When you sign up, you get a unique secret code that gets you access to all the supportive programs we created for Solo Chica.
Not only do you get an incredible dance vacation in South America, you get insider Solo Chica pricing so your spending budget will be hundreds of $$$ less than if you tried to figure all this out on your own.
Most important, you’ll receive the warm support of the tango family I’ve brought together who will welcome you with a kiss on the cheek (the Buenos Aires way to greet).
As one woman who came on a recent adventure told me, “If I had come on my own maybe I would have had 1 amazing day. With your help I had 7 amazing days.”
What you get when you come on a Solo Chica Tango Adventure
Way more than your average “tango tour,” the Solo Chica Tango Adventure is your passport to insider experiences in Buenos Aires with new friends, support and community.
Solo Chica is a 7-day course that leads you on a transformative tango safari through the authentic tango world of Buenos Aires. The course is designed to give you structure and support so it’s easy for you to come to Buenos Aires on your own or with a friend or partner.
For more than a vacation, the course gives you themes related to confidence, relationships, and pleasure and sensuality that you will be searching out and finding in yourself and others through the milonga and tango culture with the help of your Tango Fairygodmother or father.
Our mission is to empower women to travel alone. However, the course is easily adaptable for men (chicos), friends and couples.
Our promise is the ease of the Itinerary. It can actually be hard to communicate with people in Argentina to get off the beaten path. Solo Chica helps you turn a week of vacation into an extraordinary 7 days that will teach you Argentine tango–and much more.
Give yourself a 7-Day Curated Tango Immersion
During your 7 days you’ll be living in Buenos Aires like a local. You’ll be exploring hidden gems of Buenos Aires with all its gastronomic, architectural, shopping, and cultural delights.
Monday: Tango shoe-shopping at a secret boutique in an apartment. First coffee with Tango Fairygodmother at antique “Bar Notable.” First elegant milonga.
Tuesday: Body-self-care day. Massage. Reflexology. Private lesson with one of the best tango teachers in Buenos Aires. Friendly alternative milonga with your Tango Fairygodmother.
Wednesday: Second private lesson. Psicotango session (psioctango is a methodology combining tango and psychoanalysis. You’ll only find it in Buenos Aires). Live orchestra at the milonga with your Tango Fairygodmother and a taxi dancer hooked up for you.
Thursday: Private yoga session. Another private tango lesson. Secret tango boutique.
And so on…that’s just a sample of what awaits!
Everything is explained to make it easy for you as a foreigner, even if you don’t speak Spanish. Every day is full of treats.
The Solo Chica Itinerary opens doors for you.

Go out with your Tango Fairygodmother to Milongas
You’ll meet your Tango Fairygodmother (or father) via Skype before your trip to go over your week and choose milongas together, based on you, your age, your level, and what you want to experience. In Argentina (and especially in Buenos Aires tango) things change all the time–which is fun! Your Tango Fairygodmother will keep you in the loop personalizing your Itinerary for what’s happening the week you come.
At your first coffee meeting in Buenos Aires your Tango Fairygodmother will answer your questions and update you on everything you need to know.
Your Tango Fairygodmother will accompany you to three milongas, on the transformational tango part of your course, helping you search out the themes of confidence and sensuality that most call to you in the course created by Sasha.
All the Tango Fairy Godparents have been selected for their expertise and warm personalities. Through Solo Chica, you get to be part of their communities. In one week, you’ll instantly be part of the “tango culture group” in the birthplace of the dance. You’ll be meeting people–and dancing!
Do a Tango God/dess Photo Shoot
Through Solo Chica you can do a three-hour Tango Goddess Photo Shoot with a hyper-talented photographer who shoots for Netflix and Sony. You may feel shy and that’s OK. Tan will have coffee with you before the shoot to understand what you want and encourage you to uncover your tango goddess personality in the shoot. The shoot can be fantasy, serious, glamorous, provocative or modest. A photo assistant who scouts locations will be present to help you look your best.
Normal price: $500 Solo Chica price: $180. The Tango Goddess Photo Shoot is one example of many of how Solo Chica saves you $$$.
But the greatest value is not transactional. The greatest value of Solo Chica is the warmth and support of the community we have created to guide you in these once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
Don’t be shy. The Solo Chica Tango Goddess photo shoot team will support you to do you.
Insider prices for big savings.
The Itinerary more than pays for itself with the insider pricing. You’ll save $$$ with on private lessons, taxi dancers, Tango Fairygodmother, shoes, clothing, yoga, massage: far more than the program cost!
Peace of mind.
If you’re concerned about safety, we tell you everything in the Itinerary–to make it easy and stress-free for you based on local knowledge.
Be part of the local culture.
It’s not easy to break into a new dance scene. Solo Chica will make you an instant insider in the tango culture. You can easily be dancing on night one!
You’ll save yourself hours of work trying to figure this out for yourself on Google.
Truthfully, you never could figure this all out yourself … this stuff is not on Google.
Solo Chica was created to make newcomers part of Buenos Aires milongas.
You’ll visit a variety of milongas (the sacred places where tango is danced) with your Tango Fairygodmother (or father). From the elegant to the alternative, you can be part of this.

what past adventurers say
Christine Edwards, Seattle
What helped me take this leap to come to Argentina by myself was knowing I’d have a group of supportive people when I got here through the Solo Chica Tango Adventure. It was easy for me to make that choice knowing I wouldn’t have to do it by myself.
The week hasn’t been lonely at all. The team Sasha put together of instructors, Tango Fairygodmothers and taxi dancers has been incredible.
Kerry Lander, Melbourne Australia
One of the most valuable, transformative experiences in my recent life! As a coaching client of Sasha’s, being able to have face-to-face sessions was the icing on the cake. I recommend the Tango Adventure to anyone who is looking to connect with tango at its source and discover Buenos Aires in a gentler, friendlier, more fun way than you might on your own.
Sabine Tuzik, Washington, DC
I’ve been raving about the Tango Adventure. It was by far and large the best vacation I’ve had in years. So many encounters and communion with like-hearted souls. I also love that tango will give me a path to travel and meet people, especially when I transition into retirement 2-4 years from now.
Jeannette Gray, Melbourne, Australia
I traveled from Australia to South America for the first time solo without speaking Spanish. My time in Buenos Aires doing Sasha’s Tango Adventure was a pivotal and wonderful experience. Sasha and her team are the most lovely people, all of whom in their own ways appreciate the beauty and humanity at many levels of this transformational dance.
Denise Breheny, Los Angeles, CA
I started at zero and now I can get out there on the dance floor. People are saying it looks like tango! I’ve had an amazing time. If you are thinking about coming you should.
Claudia Fiaschetti, San Francisco, CA
I would do the Tango Adventure again in a heartbeat! The true joy I saw in Buenos Aires was from people living very large lives. I appreciated the level of intimacy required from tango, the balance between owning yourself and yielding to your partner. There are vital people dancing and living, no matter their age.
Christian Isely, New Mexico
Sasha’s Tango Adventure was an incredible and transformative experience. It caught just the right balance of teaching a new skill, sparking new friendships, exploring the best of Buenos Aires, and opening a new world. Tango is indeed an entire world in itself.
Paul Mooney, Rumford, RI
I met Sasha at a Quirkyalone meetup in Providence. Not being faint of heart, understanding and embracing the concept of quirkyalone, I said I would go. I had a tremendous experience. I encourage any man or woman to have this experience. Sasha’s trips are not to be missed!
Why I created the Solo Chica Tango Adventure
Born and raised in Rhode Island. Lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 15 years before life brought me to tango in Buenos Aires. Hooked on tango since 2010. My life has been utterly transformed by this dance. Studying and living tango in Buenos Aires has given me so much fulfillment I wanted to help others have the same experience.
I discovered tango in Cali, Colombia, the worldwide capital of salsa (!), during a yearlong solo travel trek through South America. After that trip, I left heady Silicon Valley where I had worked as a product manager. I was already a writer. I became a life coach, integrating tango deeply in my writing (I’m at work on a memoir about my own transformation through sensuality) and my coaching.
I created Solo Chica to share tango’s bliss and healing power so you can have your own lessons through tango in Buenos Aires’ magical culture. This stuff is too good to not share!
Solo travel is also a way to discover new parts of yourself. An avid solo traveler, I created Solo Chica to empower more women to travel alone with local knowledge, contacts and support–and the transformational treasure hunts I send you on through my courses.
Tango as a Path of Transformation
Through tango you can learn about confidence. Body connection. Trust. Intimacy. Opening your heart. Drawing boundaries. Saying yes. Saying no. Flirtation. Seduction. All through your body. Couples can learn about listening, following, leading, partnership, and sensitivity.
If you want to gain a space to talk about all you are learning, you can pair the Tango Adventure with life coaching with me.
