Members Classes - Wednesdays and Thursdays

Wednesday 17 May 7pm – 8.15pm


Tango is a fascinating but difficult dance. When we reach a certain level we are often inclined to leave it at that and do the same things on the dance floor that we have been doing for ages. 

Change, or learning a new way to do something (or even doing something to an acceptable standard you have never done before) gives a great boost to your confidence.

Master something difficult and boost your confidence. Partner up with someone around the same standard as you and get some semi-private tuition from Wendy and Joe.

Personal attention in improving those areas that you would like to improve is the quickest way to success!

It is not necessary for you to attend the courses with a partner. The teachers will try to organise volunteers among club members to balance follower/leader numbers. In order for us to organise this you need to register early.
