Lessons

 Tango West, established 17 years ago, was instrumental in bringing Tango to Bristol and the surrounding area. It is run by Andrew Oldroyd and Michele Tedder. Over the years we've held thousands of classes and put on and DJ'd at over 400 social dances and events.Tango West is the place to come to learn and dance Argentine Tango

Theme this Wed: 29th Apr - The Cross


We will continue this week with that most ubiquidous of Tango moves - the Cross. We will re-examine this concept afresh, with the aim of challenging automatic and habitual patterns of usage in our dance

 

6.30-7.30pm New Beginners & recent dancers    £6

In this class we will look at essential technique: Basically, how does the Cross work? We will develop things from last week together with revision


7.45 8.45pm Themes & Technique Class       £8

In this class we will go into a little more detail with some variations and general deconstruction. In particular, we will consider some special ways to 'set up' the Cross with a little more flavour, rather than the 'throw away' move it often is. We will also revise from last week the system of performing multiple double time crosses from simple walking

Only £10 for whole evening inc Practica
If you want to come for a couple of hours of dancing and practice in an informal atmosphere, the Practica alone is £4

Milongas & Events

 We host regular Milongas (Social Dances) at the Redland Club, Burlington Rd, Bristol BS6 6TN. We aim to create the atmosphere of a Traditional Buenos Aires Milonga: featuring  Golden Age tango music, played in tandas with cortinas...encouraging good floorcraft and the use of tango etiquette, including the cabeceo.

********

Andrew and Michele are also very experienced Traditional Tango DJ's having provided the music for literally 100's of Milongas over 15 years. They are available to DJ at your Tango event if you wish.
