Our Thursday Beginner’s series offer the most comprehensive introduction to the art of Tango. There are 3 main 6-weeks series focusing on core tango basics like Walking and Turning; Musicality and Rhythm; the nuances of Leading and Following. Highly qualified teaching staff and lots of returning advanced students offer their support and help in a friendly non-threatening environment. Our female teachers are the most recognized dancers in the community, so any follower gets the chance to study with the best.
Absolute Beginners can start at the beginning of ANY of the 6-week series, and anyone is welcome to attend this class as it's always helpful to review the basics.
