A Taste of Tango Workshop 1

Beginners Workshop in Argentine Tango

A two hour workshop for new (never danced Argentine Tango before) or recent beginners (dancing a few weeks/months), in the beautiful, sophisticated and elegant dance of Argentine Tango, in Pinner, North London.

Whether you want to try Argentine Tango for the first time, or you wish to boost to your basic musicality and technique, this workshop is for you.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never danced before. No partner needed to join in, but we try balance leaders and followers where we can, so if you have a partner and can persuade them to come along, please bring them.

The workshop will cover as much of the following as time allows.

  • Stepping on the beat (paso al compas)
  • Marking time (marca el tiempo)
  • Embrace and connection (el abrazo)
  • Walking (caminata)
  • The Run (corrida)
  • Front Figure 8’s (ocho adelante)
  • Back Figure 8’s (ocho atras)
  • Stops (parada)
  • Step Over (pasada)
  • Adornments (adorno)
  • Sandwich (sanguichito)
  • Basic Musicality

By the end of the workshop my aim is to have you dancing a simple Argentine Tango, using some classic figures, to a traditional tango tune.

Places are limited so you need to book your place below to guarantee entry. Please don’t attend without booking, and please don’t book without attending! If you miss out on this workshop, don’t worry, we are planning at least one more later in March, if there is enough demand.

Men – I know you like to leave your options open for a Saturday afternoon (pub, watching footy etc), but don’t leave it until the last moment to book your place. Book early and make a waiting lady happy! 🙂


Bookings are now closed for this event.

  1. Dear Steve, I would love to attend to your workshop on the 10th but, I can’t! Working Fridays and Saturdays.
    If you are thinking to repeat the event, please try have it on any other day!
    Except the workshops, do you run regular classes etc?

    Thanks in advance

    1. Hi Evie, thanks for your enquiry. Sorry you can’t make Saturday. Unfortunately the venue I’m using in Pinner mainly has Saturdays free.

      I do run regular classes on a Thursday evening in North Watford, details on this website. If i get enough demand to run classes in Pinner i would be looking to start them later on Saturdays, around 6:30pm if that would help?
