Tango West is one of the most established schools of Argentine Tango in the UK, having started over 15 years ago in 1998. We have taught 1000's of classes and put on around 400 social dances (or Milongas) over the period. Michele, Andrew, and Iwona are Tango West's principal Directors with over 45 years experience between them.
We hold regular classes at various levels from beginners upwards, on Wednesday evenings. We have acquired a reputation for providing structured, friendly classes with an emphasis on good technique, making for a solid foundation for dancing Tango Argentino.
If you are keen to try your hand at Argentine Tango, why not drop by at 6.30pm on a Wednesday, at our regular venue: The Redland Club on Burlington Road, Bristol BS6 6TN
The Redland Club is also available for hire for group and individual activities.
