Cost of tango lessons and milonga in Quito. March 2013.

You have to have money to dance tango (or to learn to dance tango) in Quito. It is not cheap. There is place in Quito, where you can take tango lessons, group and individual, and they have milongas as well. Cafe Libro -
When you check their prices, keep in mind that you are in Ecuador and it(info) is not accurate. I booked private classes, price posted on internet was $15, but in reality it cost $25 per hour. I was given 10% discount for paying upfront for 10 one-hour lessons.  It still better than $65 per hour for private tango lessons in Minneapolis.
Here is website of my tango teacher
The same with milonga, the price posted $5, but you have to consume at least $7. All together $12 for two and a half hours milonga.

Group lessons cost $10 per person for an hour and a half.

Actually, I like this. At least these prices guarantee that only middle class and up can be found in Quito tango community.
