Learn to dance Argentine Tango in Glasgow with Sari Lievonen and Jeff Allan

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.
