Business Terms and Conditions

Tango Elegante

Tango Elegante is a club owned and run by Steve Gears for the purpose of teaching Argentine Tango and running Argentine Tango social dances. Steve Gears makes all management decisions, and the following sets out basic terms and conditions.


Bookings are only guaranteed when your booking has been confirmed. You will receive and email to indicate this. If you receive a ‘Booking Pending’ email, this is not a confirmed booking. It means that the event co-ordinator may be checking some aspect of your booking against available places etc. Once complete, you will receive a confirmation email.

When you make a booking for the first time you are also registered on the Tango Elegante website, and can login to view or cancel your booking at any time. You will receive a separate email containing your login details.

Event Cancellation or Changes

If you receive a ‘Booking Cancelled‘ email it will mean that either you have cancelled your booking and our system is simply confirming that, or it may mean that the whole event has had to be cancelled for some unforeseen reason. Any money already paid in advance of the cancellation for that event will of course be refunded.

Tango Elegante will aim to keep everyone informed of cancelled events, changes of dates/times, changes of venue etc. in a timely manner, via email and postings on the website or Facebook page. However, before attending an event please check your email inbox (and spam folder) to make sure the event hasn’t been cancelled or changed. If you are attending without booking, please check the website or Facebook page for any notifications of event cancellation or changes. Tango Elegante or the venue will not be held responsible if you arrive at a cancelled event or on the wrong date.


Payments can be made either on arrival at the door (cash only), or via our payment forms. We use Paypal for on-line payments, but no Paypal account is needed to use debit/credit cards (just pay as a ‘guest’). When you enter payment details on-line you will be dealing with the secure Paypal system. Tango Elegante does not store any payment card details.

When you receive a booking confirmation you will find a link to our payment page where you can pay any time before the event starts, using the details supplied in the Booking Confirmation email. If you do not wish to pay in advance, please make sure you have the correct money to pay ‘on the door’.

Discount Prices

Discounts offered for a single date event are only available to people booking on-line and paying before the start of the event. The price ‘on the door’ will always be the full amount.

Discounts for booking a whole teaching course are available when making payments before a course start date. However, in order for you to try us out and still benefit from the discount rates, Tango Elegante will allow you to commence attendance to a course on a class by class basis (for which you pay the full ‘on the door’ price each week), and if you chose to commit to the entire course within the discount period (see details on prices page) you will be allowed to ‘convert’ and pay for the remainder of the course on the following week to receive the overall discount price.

The ‘try out’ period is determined at the discretion of the management and once the opportunity has passed there will be no further discounts offered for the duration of that course.

Discount Cards

For dancers attending the improvers/intermediate classes we offer the Ten Week Discount Card which can be purchased for blocks of ten weeks, and give a discount to the ‘on the door’ price of regular classes. The discount card cannot be used for special workshops or social milongas which may be priced differently to regular classes.

The Discount Card will be valid until all ten boxes have been marked by Tango Elegante. Please note that if you forget to bring your discount card, you will be required to pay the ‘on the door’ price for each person, but you can continue to use the discount card for any regular class until it’s fully used up. See further details on the prices page.
