Course Price: £64

Individual classes: £9/person
If you have taken tango classes previously and would like to revise your basics you can book for individual classes if you come along with a partner.

Come along to our beginner’s course and 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 and the music. With us you won’t need to memorise sequences but will learn the skills that allow you to be creative with your dancing. Our course syllabus also includes 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 this time.

You can book your place as a couple a singe follower or a leader. We do our best to balance the numbers of leaders and followers thus places for singles will fill up quickly. Please, book early to avoid disappointment. If you are booking as a single female follower you may be partnered up with another female who has signed up to learn to lead. Usually these ladies are already experienced tango dancers as followers which tends to be an advantage in learning to lead.

You may book in person at any of our tango events or by contacting Sari

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.
