Highly enjoyable intensive two hours of anything Tango you want jamming it. Supported practice, reviewing material, considering moves, improvisation and music, trouble shooting. I want to hear from you and see you there if you want to practice, play, try, shape things differently whatever the level of dancing you are dancing at. This session aims to cater for whatever the groups and individuals needs and desires takes us. It may be that a few want to review class moves, whilst one couple wants to explore how one phrase can be disseminated and incorporated into their dance, whilst another may want to work on musicality…. You get the idea. This is a jam! And you are all very welcome!

It is a beautiful hall. There is lots of parking, a plethora of buses and it’s a short walk from Haymarket Station. What’s not to love!!!

If you wish you could make one of these, please do let me know too. Get in touch. I’d like to know and that being said, I am always happy to hear from you, so do feel free to contact me.

An Authentic Argentine Tango Open Level Class that stretches from improver to advanced dancers (though beginners are welcome too, you might want to take a look at the Saturday Dance Base class). In a mutually supportive, inspiring and fun environment, no set level enables everyone to learn at their own pace. You can come with or without a partner and swap or don’t swap in a fluid manner as appropriate to the task in hand.

These unique classes offer a rare opportunity to get lots of one to one time as numbers are kept low. So you’ll benefit from Ani’s professional dancer teacher technical tips and experience, made bespoke for you. And she’ll check in regularly with you throughout the session to see how you are getting on. As dancing Tango well requires understanding it’s structures and moving with integrity this one to one hands on help is invaluable. With a plethora of information and encouragement in it’s application, you can explore all the nooks and crannies of new and old moves and phrases in-depth, to dance at your delicious very best, no matter what level of experience you have with confidence. Developing sound skills as you go along to make your Tango truly gorgeous. So if you are serious about dancing Tango qualitatively and delighting dancers of all levels on the social dance floor, then this is definitely the class for you. Come and share in this focused, friendly and inspirational learning space by booking your place in advance with Ani.

“…following what the class needs rather than a ridged scripted curriculum in a way that really works…” Hannah

“motivating and fun! It is great that there are more advanced dancers learning new moves in the same class, because then we can see the progression. We dream of one day, being able to dance like that. Ani, makes it seem achievable and enjoyable.” Maggie

Private and Couple Lessons are the Rolls Royce of Tango Class. Working closely one to one with me, they are bespoke intensives, focusing on everything you need right now to enhance your Tango journey. It is never too soon to take Private Lessons and never too late. They will excelorate your learning and enhance your practice by giving you a deeper understanding of the techniques and how to embody them, establishing good habits in your dance to take forward into classes, workshops and onto the dance floor. For seasoned dancers they’ll fine tune your technique, opening up possibilities within your dance and enable you to take your dancing to new heights. You can explore any aspect of Tango you wish in a Private Lesson, improvisation skills, new moves, musicality, role swapping, decorating…… It really is all about you you you!! And I love love love working intensively this way and sharing my know how and approach.

Your dancing will benefit from even the odd session. And as they are all about what you need and what suits you best, you can take them as little or as often as you’d like. I offer discounts for block bookings and have various slots during the week daytime and evening.
