These classes are especially for beginners (but are also great for those looking to revise aspects of their tango dance).

Focusing on the foundations of the dance, the classes are in three-week themed modules.
Modules can be taken in any order and repeated as necessary.

Please just check when the next module is starting and come along. If you already have some tango experience, you can drop in anytime.

There is no need to book ahead, but if you have any questions please do get in touch.

Module Summary: Walking & Rhythm; Ochos & Pivots; The cross & variations; Giros & Turns; Backwards Ochos
