Our Classes

Oxford Tango Academy strives to teach a solid technique to develop in movements and sequences but over all we focus on connection.We help each of our dancers grow their movement skills over the course of time. For this reason, we offer classes ranging from the beginner to professional level during the week. Take a look at what we offer below to find the right fit for you.

Beginners Level Class

No previous experience required. in these classes we focus in the basic of Tango: Walk, Connection, Pivots and Crosses.

Technique Class

This is class is focused for all levels and we work in self body awareness. It is a very important class to understand the proper technique we need as solo dancer to then apply it with our patner. 

Improver Level Class

To qualify as "improver" you need to have a knowledge of walking connected with your partner, how to lead/follow ochos and crosses.

Choreography Class

This class is for Intermediate and Advanced level with a good understanding of technique. We focus in "Stage" Tango with choreographies, lifts, speed and complex sequences. Once a year we put on a Tango show to showcase our work!

Intermediate Level Class

To be an Intermediate Level dancer you would need to have strong understanding of parallel and cross system walking, use of disassociation and contraposition. Be able to follow & lead giros, a nice and solid embrace and connection and a fluid dance.
