What are we up to this Season?

Thanks to all the students and supporters of Tango Elegante. I have enjoyed teaching you or sharing tango with you. I wish you a Happy and Prosperous 2019 🙂

Spring Season – Watford, Hertfordshire

In the New Year we are going to try something different in Watford for the Spring Season.

Ten Weeks To Tango – Watford

Couple dancing tango Ten Weeks to Tango version 3

**Stop Press** We now have just 6 places left on this course, so if you are interested in taking this concentrated introduction to Argentine Tango, book your place now

Following a successful ‘A Taste of Tango’ Workshop, on Thursday 17th Jan we are running our ten week Argentine Tango course. Ideal for couples wanting to try this sophisticated, elegant dance.

This is a structured course (not a drop in set of classes) aimed at :-

  • beginners (never danced Argentine Tango before)
  • improvers (dancing Argentine Tango for up to 12 months)
  • tango dancers wanting to brush up on basic technique and musicality
  • leaders who want to follow (it’s fun to reverse roles!)
  • followers who want to lead (may help you get more dances…)

Dive right into the wonderful world of this sophisticated, elegant dance and take the 10 week course. Click here for more details of the ‘Ten Weeks to Tango’ course in Watford and a booking form

Please note the booking period has been extended but will be shut on 17/01/2019 at midday, so don’t wait until the last minute if you are interested in this course.
