Tango Aberdeen Classes

 

 

Tango classes: Term 1: 8th January - 1st April 2020

 

If you want to try Argentine Tango or refine your dance then come along to Tango Aberdeen on Wednesday evenings.  Absolute beginners are most welcome as are those wishing to learn new steps, work on technique and practice in a friendly and sociable environment. Both classes are drop-in this term so no need to book.

 

Tango Foundation class:  7.30pm - 8.30pm


This class is suitable for beginners including absolute beginners and those wanting to refresh their knowledge and skills.  We will cover fundamental technique such as connection, embrace and the all important tango walk, along with the basic steps so that your tango repertoire developes. 

Tango Dynamic class:  8.45pm - 9.30pm

This class is for those who are confidant with the basics such as ochos, giros and the cross.  In each class we will explore a different theme, and help you refine and focus on improving quality of movement. 

Cost: One class £6 (£5 concessions), Two classes £7 (£6 concessions)

Practicas

An opportunity to dance to good music and practice in a friendly and relaxed environment.  At the end of each month, we have a Practilonga where we open up the dance floor from 8.30pm - 10.30pm and provide fantasic music, light refreshments and nibbles (only £3). 

About our classes 

Our classes are taught in a friendly, relaxed environment and you don't need to come with a partner. We focus on the technique of Argentine tango rather than learning set routines or patterns, as Argentine tango is an improvised dance (not to be confused with ballroom tango!).  We suggest you wear comfortable non-rubber smooth-soled shoes and comfortable clothing. 

Venue

St Margaret's Episcopal Church hall, St Margaret's Brae, Gallowgate, AB25 1EA

About our teachers
