Tango West is one of the most established schools of Argentine Tango in the UK, having started over 16 years ago in 1998. We have taught 1000's of classes and put on around 400 social dances (or Milongas) over the period. Michele and Andrew are Tango West's principal Directors with over 32 years experience between them.

coming up....

 

Myriam Ojeda-Patiño (Mina)

Will be teaching on Wed Sept 24th

This lesson with Mina will be exploring the fascinating subject of

CADENCIA:
Dancing with cadencia is about feeling the music and moving in a particular way, it is a kind of ‘swaying’ of the body while placing the footwork. The elegance of the Cadencia will surely add to your dancing, you will feel the sensation of two bodies ‘swaying’ together in a close embrace in unison with the rhythmic flow of the music making the dance much more pleasurable (rhythmically and aesthetically).

Mina will be using the music of Alfredo Gobbi

7.30 - 9pm.   £14  Practica till 10.15

A NEW BEGINNERS COURSE.

Beginners Argentinian Tango classes at the Redland Club
Autumn term starts on Wed from Sept...

This term we will be teaching the fundamentals of tango as well as adding in new concepts for those students who have already taken some classes with us. It's fine to drop in though better to commit to a series of classes if you can. That's so you can learn the basics, make regular progress and develop your skills. Michele and Andrew provide expert instruction based on many years experience of the music and the dance!

Classes will run on Wednesdays:-
Sep 10,17,24
   Oct 1,15,22, (breaks on Oct 8th & 29th)

     & Another 6 week block:-
    Nov 5,12,19,26

There's no need to bring a partner- it's fine to come solo; please wear smooth soled shoes suitable for dancing.

New format for Wednesday evening Tango

We will now be inviting popular Guest Teachers regularly once a month - generally this will be on the fourth Wednesday of each month - and instead of a drop in class we'll be inviting you to book ahead so we can be sure that it will be viable. If enough people book to cover the costs then we'll be able to go ahead. We have Mina lined up for 24th Sept and Gustavo & Maria booked for 8th Oct

On the other Wednesdays of the month you can still get your tango fix - at our new mid-week milonga "Milonga UnDosTres"  7.45-10.45pm, £5  featuring the very best of classic tango dance music.
Wednesday Milonga dates:
  Oct    1, 15, 22
  Nov    5, 12, 1
Dec    3, 10

          Beginner lessons  6.30 - 7.30pm as normal
