  • Argentine Tango - Beginners and Improvers Classes at The Orange Tree

    Monday 11 June 2018

    Beginners at 7.15
    Improvers at 8.30
    Music - will be fab
    Teacher - Lorenzo

    A warm approach to tango that will get you dancing.  Contemporary music (neo, alt, neuevo) and accessible approach that makes it easy to get involved in tango.

    Simple classes will teach you all you need to know to enjoy dancing Argentine Tango with loved ones, friends, and fellow dancers.. home, at the party, at a dance, anywhere!

    Beginners classes assume no previous dance experience. Partners are optional, the classes will organise according to the attendance.
    Wear leather or smooth soled shoes, or even thick socks! Dance shoes are fine if you have them. But rubber soles won’t work!
    It is better to start on the 2nd April because the classes will build on each other, although we will always work on the basics at the beginning of each lesson, and will help you join in.

    Improvers classes will organise according to attendance. Expect to learn techniques that add spice to your tango ,,,, colgada, planeo, volcada, voleo and many other interesting bits. Treat them as drop in classes.
