We run weekly classes in Tynemouth on Tuesdays. The event is informal and meant to give a joyful introduction to Argentine Tango. Just wear shoes that allow pivoting -you do not need to bring a partner.

 

Tuesday class

 

When: Every Tuesday from 7:30 pm until about 8:30 pm

How much:  £ 5 per session

What else: We usually contiue dancing until after 10 pm, an ideal opportunity to practice and mix with other tango dancers. Drinks available from the downstairs pub.

 

 

If you practice at home and get stuck, there are a number of websites explaining some of the basics and also more advanced moves.

The list below includes some of the principles and figures that we teach in our classes.
