WHAT WE DO:

We dance and teach an improvised, Close Embrace Tango that aims to be stylish, flowing and musical. For us, Tango is an improvised experience for two people in a Close Embrace within a group. Our hallmark is natural, elegant and musical dancing.

These range from Introductory Courses on All Levels to Themed Couple Classes in Tango, Milonga and Tango Vals. Our emphasis is on body knowledge & Leading and Following with ease and elegance. We strive to develop ourselves and our students into the best dancers we can be.

 CAUTION: Please take responsibility for your bodies’ well-being and be careful  to dance with balance and with a correct and considered technique. 
Only when you are really balanced and at ease with your body should you attempt combinations and steps that are more difficult than you can manage! 
Be mindful and use common sense about the physical constraints of your body and the level of your fitness. 
Learn slowly and mindfully and Tango will serve you well.
