Why do people like our tango lessons?

  We teach social tango…

…for normal people, who want to dance at tango dances (Milongas), not on stage.  Why waste money on learning something you will never use? That’s why we don’t teach show moves or sequences, and we don’t choose guest teachers based on their stage show performances.

 Carefully prepared and planned lessons

We started teaching because we were disappointed by the low standard of teaching that was available, and since then we have constantly refined our teaching techniques and format.  Now, over 2500 lessons later, we are still developing new ideas to help you learn tango easily and quickly.

 The lessons are FUN!

Yes, the lessons are simply good fun!  You’ll learn faster when you are relaxed and enjoying yourself.  So our lessons are always entertaining.  The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming.

 Consistent teaching team

Very good tango dancers don’t necessarily make good tango teachers (dancing and teaching are very different skills), so we don’t use guest teachers, and we don’t swap teachers every few weeks.  You’ll have a consistent teaching team; that way, we get to know you, and we can develop progressive lessons that suit you and your pace of learning.

 We look after everyone

We understand that everyone learns at a different speed and in different ways.  So we look after everyone, not just the ones who learn fast or people who are struggling.

 Our teaching techniques work

You will never be lined up behind a teacher trying to copy their moves.  You will never be walking up and down the room refining some nuances of the tango ‘walk’.   Quite simply, we’ve found that these approaches to teaching tango don’t work and are a waste of your time (and they’re a bit boring).  You’ll learn by dancing with a partner, in a progressive way, just like when you’re out dancing.

 Our pupils enjoy going out dancing

You’ll make friends and soon have the confidence to enjoy lots of local tango dance events.  Just like lots of our other students!
