OUR TEACHING 
We have been working on our pedagogy over the last eight years and have developed a unique method for learning, using a lot of conceptual explanations as well as detailed technique and often some anatomical explanation. We have found certain ways of explaining both movements and body awareness which improve student's dancing significantly - we have also of course had the opportunity to study with some of the important maestros in Buenos Aires and have adapted and adjusted key concepts based on our own dancing experiences. Our backgrounds and our trajectory are quite different from most dance couples and this has given us a unique pedagogical approach - which we are always excited to share with our students.

Our tango academies are the only ones in the UK to have resident teachers from Argentina.  We carefully select talented couples to join our team, who are both exceptional dancers as well as strong teachers in order to give you the best tango training.  Visit the "Our teachers" tab for more details!
