We hold regular workshops with visiting teachers from Argentina, after the succesful workshops with Pablo Nievas from Buenos Aires or next workshop with visiting teachers should be in the autumn.
Our teaching is based on the methods taught in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the Home of Tango. From the outset we teach the fundamentals of the dance: good posture, balance, technique, body control, musicality, and elegance in your movements. Our aim is to produce confident tango dancers who can enjoy dancing socially. To attain this level of confidence it is crucial to consider correct posture, the embrace, and how to lead and follow this beautiful, improvised dance, not only at special workshops but at every class.
We don't dictate which level of class you attend, you may choose whichever level you feel comfortable with. You will know yourself whether the level you have chosen is too challenging or not challenging enough, and will be free to move to a more appropriate level.
As a guideline we suggest:
Absolute Beginners Course: For those who have never danced Argentine Tango before.
Tango Fundamentals: For those who know some basic movements our Tango Fundamentals class is for all levels,concentrating on posture, technique, balance and musicality.
Intermediates/Advanced: Building on the fundamentals, we will introduce you to more complex patterns, help you to interpret the music, improvise on the dance floor and enjoy this Beautiful Dance
