The Flavour of Tango – Argentine Tango Workshop

30/05/2020 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm –

1.5 hr workshop in Pinner North London introducing Argentine Tango to new / recent beginners. Ideal for couples wishing to learn this beautiful elegant dance.

Please note: This workshop will run providing… 1. our venue is open for business, 2. there is no ban on assemblies of small groups of people, 3. I have not obviously contracted Covid-19 by this date (but please read the post on the home page), and 4. at least 2 couples wish to attend. I will limit attendance to 4 couple maximum, and our tango room has plenty of ventilation.

A one and a half hour workshop introducing Argentine Tango. It is for new beginners (never danced Argentine Tango before). Ideal for couples wishing to try out this beautiful, sophisticated and elegant dance. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never danced before.

It takes two to tango, so this workshop will be role balanced (equal leaders and followers) as far as possible. I advise people to book as couples so that there is less need to circulate.

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)
  • Open Box (Baldosa)
  • The Rock Turn (Vuelta de Roca)
  • The Run (corrida)
  • Front Figure 8’s (ocho adelante)
  • Stops (parada)
  • Step Over (pasada)
  • Adornments (adorno)
  • Basic Floor-craft
  • 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 (4 couples only) so you need to book and pay for your place below to guarantee entry. Please don’t attend without booking (we might be too full to let you in), and please don’t book without attending (you might be blocking a place that someone else could use instead)!

If you miss out on this workshop, don’t worry, we run these regularly across the year, subject to demand.

What to bring: Ideally you’ll need shoes (leather soles) which will allow you to turn on one foot, on a smooth floor, clothing to allow free movement, and any refreshments you may wish to consume.


Bookings are now closed for this event.
