Collectively we have more 40 years of dancing and teaching experience.
During this time and from our own experiences as students, we have developed a sensitive and flexible approach towards teaching Tango.
We have travelled and danced all over the world gaining knowledge and experience from different instructors, each with their own style of teaching and dancing. This resource is now at your fingertips and all in the same room, so now is the time to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge we possess and transfer it across to you, so that you too can enjoy the world of dancing Argentine Tango.
Our aim, however, is to develop your true understanding of learning Tango, so we have come to some personal conclusions about dancing and teaching Tango which has evolved over the years, and we would like to share them with you.
Which style is right … For you?
Salon, Milonguero, Nuevo … Why limit yourself to just one Tango style when you can learn the basic principles and use your better understanding to then choose the style which feels right for you as your learning develops?
We want you to make the dance your own, and to do that you need all the possibilities at your fingertips. Saying that dancing the Tango in a social environment; with other people in the room, may be a little daunting at first, but rest assured we are there to help you with your first social experience is pleasurable and as enjoyable as you deserve.
It is important to be considerate of other people on the dance floor and to do this we will show you how to respect other couples dancing nearby, and develop an understanding for the dance floor as a whole. A good place to start learning how to dance the Tango is to explore the Salon style first, which will give you a good grounding to then explore, and find your own Tango style.
Why don’t you post class recaps?
Dance is a physical form of movement to music, so it is important to be able to feel your body communicating with your partner’s body whilst moving with the music in order to truly understand and learn. For this reason, we do not post class recaps with any written dance instruction (things can be lost in translation). Nor do we post video clips. Instead, I invite you to experience it all in person when you attend a class, and you are welcome to record video clips for your own personal recollection.
We respectfully ask that you do not post any personal video recordings publicly as it is not intended to be a complete class, and it is unfair to expect students to try to learn the whole lesson from scratch.
What music is best for Tango?
We encourage you to have a personal relationship with your Tango experience, which includes the music you prefer to dance to. Ultimately you can dance to any music that moves you, and there are some Milonga’s that facilitate more modern preferences.
While it is easier for absolute beginners to start with the more simple Tango modern alternatives, we will also be playing the traditional Golden Age music for the after classes, during the Practilonga.
Practilonga is a Milonga & Practica in one – whether you just want to dance or you need to practice, there is space here for you & we will support you in this as well as in the class.
What Our Students Say
This is a rare opportunity for those people in the Milton Keynes area to get an introduction into the amazing world of Argentine Tango. Two pairs of teachers to teach Tango at the introductory and improver level in a relaxed, friendly environment.

Attended the workshop today after a six week beginners course. Del and Kim were brilliant, I learnt so much and really felt like I’ve taken a huge step forward. Really friendly bunch, looking forward to continuing on Monday nights and of course the next workshop!
