Next Complete Beginners Taster Day: Sun 3rd April, 2016: 1 30-5pm

Absolute Beginners Tango Taster day

Learn the basic language of Tango in a day- a chance to whet your appetite and see just how addictive this dance can be. You will learn about leading, following, musicality and the embrace. By the end of the day you will be able to improvise and enjoy some Tango steps, understand some of the Tango culture, but most of all get a sense of the challenges & bliss of this glorious partner dance.

After this workshop, you will get a free glass of bubbly to celebrate your tango inauguration.

This workshop needs to be booked in advance in order to secure your place. To book online NOW
go to Beginners Taster day page

You are most welcome to come with a partner or independently – you will have the choice to stay dancing with your partner or to practice with others in the group. 

Please bring leather-soled shoes – this will help when turning. Women can bring high heeled shoes or other shoes that are comfortable but also with leather soles.

Here is a short film..”WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY…’


2016: The taster days will be on the first Sunday of the month wherever possible..
