Thursday Classes in Wilmslow

Class 1 - Basic Technique Course for Argentine Tango (7:15pm - 8:15pm)

For complete Tango novices and experienced dancers who want to improve their core technique. This course is designed to build your skills and confidence over the weeks by introducing bite-sized Tango movements that can be woven together in an improvised and creative way to enjoy beautiful dances.

No partner required.

If you have never danced social Argentine Tango before you will be amazed at how quickly you can create a fully improvised dance.

If you already dance Argentine Tango as a leader or as a follower and want to learn the opposite role this is the perfect class for you.

If you are looking to reconnect with the Tango after a long time away from the dance you'll find this class gives you a fantastic refresh of the core skills.

If you want to make your dancing so clear you can dance with anyone of any level of experience from complete novice to advanced dancer the Basic Technique course is the place to come.

If you are coming to our Exploring Tango class it would be great if you could also attend this class to support those who might be less experienced, and to get the most from your evening.
