Argentine tango is a social dance and our aim is to teach people to be good leaders and followers. This way you can join any tango event and dance with people from different classes and continents! To encourage good leading and following we rotate partners. We don’t force this issue, but encourage it as part of our teaching methodology. All classes take place in a relaxed atmosphere and people of all ages are welcome.

- Shoes: ladies tango shoes traditionally have a stiletto heel, but any heeled or flat shoe is useful for dancing in, as long as you are comfortable. Shoes with too much grip can make it difficult to dance so try not to wear something with a thick rubber sole.
- Clothing: wear anything you feel comfortable in, but for women restrictive skirts are not advisable as your legs need free movement.
- Do I need to bring a partner?: no, in fact many people come alone. We’re a friendly bunch!
- Can I come at any point in term? Does it matter if I have no dance experience?: No, feel free to arrive at any time and we do cater for complete beginners.
