Wednesday Argentine tango classes

  • with a professional tango teacher
  • no partner necessary
  • no previous dance experience required
  • all ages welcome!

This is how Argentine Tango looks like when it’s danced by one of the most famous couples Noelia & Carlitos.

You want more than just a drop in Argentine tango session?

Every 2 month (almost!) a new season starts (4-7 week course). These are always available as a full course (recommended) or as drop-in classes (if you prefer a more flexible approach).

The first tango lesson (Tango 1) will be addressed to beginners and focused on basic elements of social tango, embracing your partner, and walking with the music. These lessons are also valuable if you have been dancing a while and would like to refresh your fundamental techniques. Those who can already dance, please encourage a friend to take their first steps.

The second tango lesson (Tango 2) will build on the fundamental principles explored in the first lesson and develop these into more complex movements. We will have some fun with vals & milonga too. It is recommended for a beginner to have attended eight Tango 1 lessons before moving on to Tango 2 lesson.

Between and after the lessons there will be some time of free dance and practising (practica).

Tango teacher
