  This course is now run on an ad-hoc basis for small groups. If you have a group of friends or colleagues who'd like to learn the basics of Argentine Tango over a weekend, get in touch to arrange a date.

  Would you like to learn how to dance Argentine Tango in a weekend? 

Then this 2 day workshop is for you!

Argentine Tango is a beautiful, creative dance that can be as playful or sensual as you want to make it.

The partner dance of Tango has many benefits beside the joys of dancing it. It can improve your fitness, balance, confidence and posture, as well as being a great way to meet new people!

The Tango Lingua approach is fun and relaxed, and focused on helping your body absorb the technique so you can get on and enjoy the dance. 

If you can walk, then you can tango! All it takes is an interest in learning.

Here's what you'll get from the weekend:
  • Learn the basic tango techniques of walking, the embrace, crosses and ochos.
  • Be introduced to simple elements of musicality and play in the dance.
  • Practice to different types of tango music.
  • Enough experience to go on to regular weekly group classes if you wish, or to dance in a social setting.
  • Lots of fun!
