Our dancing, our teaching
The essence of our dancing is the communication between two people which is born in the embrace and lives and breathes through the music. In our teaching, we focus on the skills that will enable our students to create and enjoy their own dance: musicality, and a clear understanding of the concepts of leading and following. Our foundations are traditional but our methods embrace modern techniques and natural, organic movement.
In our classes, we strive to create a relaxed and friendly environment where students can be active, social and learn to dance and enjoy tango!
