Come along to our beginner’s course to discover how to master this beautiful dance. We will start with learning the right posture, connection and walking technique to enable you to build up a proper foundation for your tango skills. We teach you the style of tango best suited to dancing on the social dance floor, aiming for a fully improvised dialogue between the dance partners. With us you won’t need to memorize sequences but will learn skills to be creative with your dancing. Our course syllabus includes also learning the basics of floor-craft and social tango etiquette skills.

The course is composed of a 60-minutes long class followed by 30-minutes of practice time so you can always consolidate what you have been learning. You may also have a rest and enjoy free refreshments during the practice time.

What to expect at beginner level

To learn the tango is like learning a new language. We need some vocabulary and the basics of grammar to understand how this amazing movement language works. When danced socially Argentine Tango is an improvised dance based on walking. We will work with posture, connection and walking technique along with introducing you to the basic steps and step combinations. We do not teach you set routines or sequences. You will learn to be creative while communicating with your partner in expressing the classic era tango music.
