Details

Learn and enjoy dancing authentic Argentine Tango from Tango Warwick's wonderful teachers Luis Rodriguez & Elizabeth Knock. The classes are on Fridays except for the first Friday of each month.

At 6.30 there is the beginners class, catering especially for the recently enrolled newcomers. It also serves as a time for improving the all important basic techniques. The usual more advanced courses are later in evening, restricted to more experienced dancers and by permission of the teacher. Most students find joining in the basic classes useful, or essential, even while taking the most advanced ones.

Of course newcomers will be made very welcome; and afterwards there is a lively practice/ social dancing session to round up an enjoyable, and instructive evening.

The practica is after the third class but is open and free to those who have done any of the classes (and a nominal charge to others)--you could always bring something to read in the hall or lobby or go round the corner to a pub or cafe and come back at 9.30?

Remember:

• You don't need a partner, Argentine Tango is a social dance and it is standard practice to change partners during the classes.

• Let me know if you have any queries I might help with.

Our "resident" teachers for the first half of 2019 are Luis Rodriguez from Argentina & Elizabeth Knock. They travel up from London to teach and inspire us. Their philosophy is to teach what you need for social dancing, anywhere in the world with anyone who is ready to dance. Their dancing style is of beautiful simplicity. They emphasise this, and dancing with the music, from the very first class.
