Argentine Tango Open Classes Summer Season Part 2 – Pinner

[Please note: For one day only on 31st Aug the class will run between 3pm to 4:30pm. This is due to a booking clash at the venue. In September we go back to the 4:30pm start.]

This is a series of open classes, starting on Saturday 24th Aug running up to 21st Sept (Part 3 will run from 28th Sept – to be confirmed).

These classes are aimed at all levels from recent beginner to intermediate/advanced. Each class will review and consolidate what you already know, and help you improve your dancing with new figures, movements and walking patterns, while learning more about musicality and how you can use the music to influence your dance.

Please note these classes are limited in numbers (max 14 people) due to current venue size, so please book to let me know who’s interested. You don’t have to pay until you attend.

Autumn Season in Pinner

From late September we are running a ‘Ten Week to Tango’ beginners/ improvers course, as well as a continuation of our Open Classes for more advanced dancers.

‘Ten Weeks to Tango’ 3 – Pinner

Couple dancing tango Ten Weeks to Tango version 3This is a structured course (not a drop in set of classes), starting on Saturday 28th Sept lasting 10 weeks, 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…)

Please note this course is limited in numbers (max 10 people) and requires some commitment to the whole period. Missing the odd week maybe OK, but this is not a drop in class and missing more than 2 weeks will not help you.
