ATTENTION:  
The Perth Tango Club is launching a NEW teaching program starting in June.

All courses will now be for 4 weeks and will link together to form a cohesive teaching structure for beginners. 
The program is ideal for people who are thinking about learning tango, as its short courses are designed to maintain a steady and timely introduction of new skills. 
What we are aiming for is to keep students engaged and create happy club members who want to attend Milongas.
