A San Antonio hotel is offering a tango-themed package on select weekends this spring.
The Hotel Valencia Riverwalk’s “Tango in the Courtyard” deal includes a 2-hour dance performance in the center of the hotel’s large courtyard, plus a bottle of wine, a cheese tray, valet parking, and a red rose upon arrival. Guests can watch the show from their private third or fourth floor balcony.

The performance features a variety of tango and related Latin dance styles, from the traditional version of ballroom tango to the more relaxed style of Argentinean street tango. Tango originated in the 1880s along the Rio de la Plata, the border between Argentina and Uruguay. Its roots lie in African, Native South American, and European cultures.
The primary performers are Lindsey Zan and Ricardo Correa, the 2021 U.S. Stage Tango Champions. They teach at Go Dance Studio in Austin.
The hotel package is available on Fridays and Saturdays from April 15 to May 21. Packages start at $349. The Tango entertainment, wine and cheese platter is also offered as a stand-alone option without a guest room.
