Tango Elegante classes and Coronavirus in 2022
Hope everybody had a good Christmas and New Year holiday and that you’re all staying healthy.
We are back in our new Winter season with another ’10 Week to Tango’ course starting 22nd Jan 2022. We will be running it in a cautious way as before. With the Omnicron variant of Covid being more transmissive even if less lethal, I am limiting the course to just four fully vaccinated couples. Please see our ‘Ten Week to Tango’ course page for more details of the course, safety rules and the booking form.
Three couples places are still available, so if you want to learn Argentine tango and can make it to Pinner, North London this weekend I would love to see you.
Please follow the Government advice and stay safe.
I look forward to seeing you very soon.

I finished off the previous post with the perhaps slightly unfair comment that Pugliese chucks in odd extra notes. This is not quite accurate. He was of course a … Continue reading “Musicality in Tango Dancing – Part Seven”
In the fifth part of this series I looked at a popular tune ‘Motivo Sentimental’ recorded by the Carlos Di Sarli Orchestra in 1944, and the lyrical style of Di Sarli in his hay day. As I promised in Part 5 (a long time ago – thanks for the ‘nudge’ to get part 6 written, … Continue reading “Musicality in Tango Dancing – Part Six”
