  • 8.00pm – 8.15pm – Practice
  • 8.15pm – 9.15pm – Improvers (£30)

£10 drop in on the day for each session.

On Wednesday 20th February 2019 we will start a new 6-week tango course. The same timings, £36 each level and £10 to drop in.

Learn Argentine Tango in a friendly relaxed environment with Bärbel who has over 20 years experience of teaching tango.

This beginners course is structured to take you from your first steps to your first milonga (social dance). The emphasis is on dancing in a social context and you will learn about dance floor navigation, the music, the codigos (tango etiquette) and the embrace.

The improvers course is for people who have already taken their first tango steps and dance the topics of the beginners class comfortably.

You are welcome to join the beginners lesson if you are already dancing, but want to explore the other role or simply get a make over on your tango basics.

Practice your new steps or warm up in between the lessons.

Bärbel is a qualified Feldenkrais practitioner and with her knowledge about learning and the body the tango lessons become much more than that and reflect back into your daily life.
