Frequently Asked Questions

What if I don’t have a partner for the lessons?

It’s OK to come without a partner. You can learn privately with a leader or a follower teacher, and we have experience of swapping roles, so you’ll expert advice from both sides of the embrace!

What clothes should I wear?

The lessons are informal, so we wear comfortable casual clothes. Your shoes can make a big difference. For ladies we suggest a shoe style with a small heel, leather sole, ankle straps, and an enclosed toe for comfort. Smooth soles will help you to pivot easily. The best choice for men is smooth (ideally leather) soled shoes that are close fitting around the front. We do not recommend boots, fashion shoes with long toes, dance ‘pumps’ or trainers.

What if I have to miss a lesson?

If you can’t attend a lesson then we just need enough notice (usually 48 hours) so we can cancel the venue booking and make alternative arrangements..

What is the music like?

In the lessons we play mostly traditional Tango music. It’s the best for dancing tango, and it helps you to get to know the most popular tango music and styles. We’re very happy to share the details of the music and to help you start your Tango music collection.
