Tuition for Couples conducted by Wendy and Joe
 
Do you have a partner and would like semi-private tuition together?
Regular tuition and practice are the keys to confident dancing.

Couples often get so used to dancing with each other that they compensate for the mistakes the other partner makes.  This results in difficulties when dancing with others, and leaves them at a loss as to how to ‘fix’ the problem.
Regular tuition can help overcome those entrenched habits and get you dancing together (and with others) competently and confidently.
 
Would you like to be able to practice your tango with a regular partner?
Many people would like to improve their tango with a regular partner, gaining certainty in their moves in order to feel confident when asking others to dance.  If you are one of these, ask someone you get on with if they would like to partner you.  You will never know if you don’t ask!
Weekly tuition and practice will give you the opportunity to work on your favourite tango moves.
 
This is your opportunity to get some semi-private tuition tailored to your specific needs.
Beginner and more experienced pairs are equally welcome.  Just partner up with someone at the same level as you. If you don’t have a partner but would like to practice regularly with someone, register your interest with the Secretary and we will see if there’s a match for you on the list!
 
NB:  Places are limited (so that we can give personal attention to all students) so register your intention to attend by emailing secretary@perthtangoclub.com
Cost is $10 each week and couples are encouraged to stay on for the Milonga Roja at no additional cost.
