These sessions are Tango made easy. The first hour will give you all the commonly repeated simple basic moves and techniques, knitted into a plethora of wonderful phrases. Followed by Practica or practice time to apply them to improvised dancing, where you get to develop your own style within the dance, making the next step into social dancing seamless. Perfect for beginners, this class also caters for those wanting to revisit the basics or role swap.
As Bobby Brazier of Strictly Come Dancing 2023 fame states, “if there’s anything to get in your locker it’s a relationship with God or the Argentine tango….. if you’ve got that in your locker, powerful!!”
Warning: Tango can be highly addictive!
Please note: you do not have to book with a partner for this class and if booking on your own will be coupled up by the teacher – you may not be dancing with the same person/people every week. If you do book with a partner, please be aware there may be some partner swapping within the session and you may not be dancing together the whole time. All prices shown are per person, so both individuals in a pair will need to book a space. If you are booking for both of you, please provide the full name of your partner by selecting that you are booking “for somebody else” when booking their space.
Teacher: Ani Tchakmakdjian & Niall Menzies as co-teacher
There are important notes in preparing to practice Authentic Argentine Tango.
Wear comfortable clothing and either a flat-soled dress shoe or shoes with a low heel.
Don’t forget to bring a bottle of water with you!
As we move into the colder months of our changeable Scottish weather, please wear layers to the class to keep sufficiently warm during, as we are still continuing to ensure ventilation in our studios.
