[Creative Exchange] Tango for Beginners

Learn to dance the Tango Milonguero


Welcome to Kickstart Arts’ Creative Exchange: Sharing Skills and Culture.

Session Title: Tango for Beginners

Description: Learn the five basic steps of traditional tango in an easy going, friendly atmosphere. Each session includes a recap of previous sessions and half an hour of guided “Practica” at the end to help cement learning.
The teachers, Jenny and Vince, ​use an intuitive process which enables you to work on techniques and steps at your own pace. They will be on hand for help and advice throughout each session.

What you’ll get: 

  • The skill of being able to socially dance a style of Tango that originated in the 1930’s, which is currently danced in Buenos Aires Tango bars.
  • A taste of a beautiful dance, and the way of life of the Milongueros (people going out for an evening dance)
  • Increased confidence with expression, musicality, creativity, feelings and elegance without the fear of criticism
  • Lots of enjoyment, socialising, and gentle exercise for body and mind
  • Print outs and information regarding traditional Tango
  • A CD with some of the music used during the lessons for your practising at home

What to bring:

  • Comfortable clothing
  • Comfortable shoes with non-marking soles that allow you to pivot on the ball of the foot
  • Water bottle
