ABOUT OUR CLASSES

Beginners Classes

Our Monday and Friday Beginners’ classes are ongoing classes, that students are welcome to attend on a casual basis. Our Beginner classes are suitable for students who have had no previous tango dancing experience. These classes are also highly recommended for Intermediate/Advanced students who want to improve and firm their fundamental technique. We focus on the fundamentals of tango technique. In particular; posture, embrace, walking, pivots, lead/follow principles, musicality and navigation techniques to help give you the confidence to start participating in the various Milongas (tango social dances) that Sydney has to offer.

Intermediate Classes

Our Monday Intermediate/Advanced classes are ongoing classes that students are welcome to attend on a casual basis. Intermediate/Advanced classes are recommended for students who have been dancing tango for at least 6 months and are confident with walking, ochos and giros.

Please have a chat with us if you are unsure of the class best suited to your level.

General Class Information

Clothing & shoes: We recommend students wear comfortable clothing that allows free movement of the legs (no tight skirts). Shoes for women should ideally be leather (or suede) soles, with a medium heel and an ankle strap to prevent the shoe falling off. Men need to wear leather soled shoes. Rubber soled shoes that stick or grip on wooden floors are not recommended.

Partners: You do not need to bring a partner to attend classes. We rotate partners frequently to ensure everyone gets a chance to dance. We like to emphasise tango as a social dance and one of the important aspects of this is the ability to lead/follow different people. However, please note: as with many dances, tango tends to attract more women than men. If you are a woman considering taking classes on your own, it is always helpful if you can encourage a man to come along as well.
