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 milongas 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 Solo Chica Tango Adventure is also a magical personal development course, taking you through the milongas at night searching for the elements that I know to be most transformational: the look (the mirada), the walk, and the abrazo (the embrace). You’ll be doing the course I have created with your Tango Fairygodmother who has been trained to guide you. Basically, it’s going to be awesome.
Our mission is to empower women to travel alone. However, the course is easily adaptable for men (chicos), friends and couples. All can benefit from tango’s lessons for life, on and off the dance floor.
Our promise is the ease of the Itinerary. Give us your hard-earned week of vacation. Solo Chica will turn it 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.

what past adventurers say
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.
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.
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 team Sasha put together of instructors, Tango Fairygodmothers and taxi dancers has been incredible.
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.
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 Buenos Aires. Hooked on tango since 2010. Dancing 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, my life went through a massive transformation. I left Silicon Valley where I had worked as a product manager. I came back to writing seriously, became a life coach, and moved to Buenos Aires.
I created the Solo Chica Tango Adventure so you can have your own powerful 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.
Tango as a Path of Healing + Transformation
I see tango as a path of physical and psychological healing. That’s why I designed the Solo Chica Tango Adventure as a magical course of personal development where you get to discover what tango has to teach you–by living it in your private classes and with your Tango Fairygodmother/father who guides you at night in the milongas.
Tango can teach you about confidence. Trust. Intimacy. Opening your heart. Drawing boundaries. Saying yes and no. Flirtation. Seduction. Couples can learn about listening, following, leading, partnership, and sensitivity. Watch the video to the right to learn more.
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.
