Tango for everybody
The world's best tango dancers did not all have a background in dance. Unlike other forms of dance, Tango can be danced to a high level at any age or fitness level because its essence lies in human connection and self-expression.
At Oxford Tango Academy, we encourage students to find their voice by following a comprehensive method adaptable to all.
Getting started can be overwhelming. We are here to help you choose the best option for you, based on your budget, learning style and schedule. No previous experience is required. We ask that you wear comfortable shoes, but do not worry about buying a pair of dancing shoes for now!
I started Tango classes with Dante and Lilie at the end of November last year. The classes were well organised; some experienced dancers were brought in to help which made a real difference. From Beginners it’s possible to progress to an Improvers class, also on a Monday which is excellent. Lilie organises Practicas on Tuesdays, sometimes Fridays which gives a good opportunity to practice and socialise with tea and cake. Dante and Lilie are excellent teachers, also lovely people. I would highly recommend their classes.
" To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on Earth and it is yours for the taking. "
