In-Depth Argentine Tango Classes

Argentine Tango       - Open level

Learn to dance Argentine Tango with technique that has been developed from many years of study and tuition. Learn how to lead or follow easily, avoiding the mistakes placing you in off balanced, uncontrolled positions.

The structure of the classes is to combine the personal teaching experience of a private lesson with the social interaction gained from a group class learning situation. Students will naturally be of different levels and abilities so we will work on concepts and general technique with the class as a group as well as working individually round the class with students giving them advice that is relevant to their personal level and skill set.

This is a great way to have fun, learning Tango with a small friendly group of fellow dance students while enjoying the benefits of more individual attention than a larger group class.

Classes are held in our Onehunga home dance studio, with an amazing 100 year old heritage Kauri sprung floor and mirrored walls.

These are small classes with a minimum of 2 couples and up to 3 couples (or a small group of friends 4+). We can run evening classes on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday depending on the groups availability.

The cost is $25 per person. Cash payment on the night (please bring exact money).

We welcome new students. You can arrange to start any week.
Contact us if you would like to try a class or have further questions. If you don't have a dance partner still get in touch as we may be able to form a class with other individuals or you may have a group of friends to form a class together (minimum 4 people).

All levels are welcome, just bring your questions and enthusiasm to learn :)
