Collectively we have more than 40 years of dancing and teaching experience.
During this time and from our experiences as students, we have developed a sensitive and flexible approach to teaching Tango.
We have travelled and danced worldwide, gaining knowledge and experience from different instructors, each with their own teaching and dancing style. 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 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 choose the style that feels right for you as your learning develops?
We want you to make the dance your own, and you need all the possibilities. Dancing the Tango in a social environment, with other people in the room, maybe a little daunting at first, but rest assured, we are here to help you with your first social experience, which is pleasurable and as you deserve.
It is essential to be considerate of other people on the dance floor. To do this, we will show you how to respect other couples dancing nearby and develop an understanding of the dance floor. An excellent place to start learning how to dance the Tango is to explore the Salon style first, which will give you an excellent grounding to study them and find your Tango style.
Could you please post class recaps?
Dance is a physical form of movement to music, so it is essential to feel your body communicating with your partner’s body whilst moving with the music to understand and learn genuinely. 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 publicly post any personal video recordings, 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 need to practice, there is space here for you & we will support you in this and 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!
