The gods were smiling down on us on Sunday for our Tango Movement Garden Party last Sunday.
For the second year running, we were blessed with glorious sunshine and blue skies for a long, lazy afternoon with our tango students.
They say that tango is so much more than a dance, and Sunday was the perfect example of that!
The party continued into the night and as the sun went down, some of you started dancing some tangos in our living room and the fairy lights started to twinkle in the trees.
Thank you to everyone who came and helped make it such an idyllic afternoon!
We're back from our Summer Break and very excited to get back to tango and our Autumn programme.
All our drop-in tango classes are back on. For our Weekly Schedule: Click Here.
This weekend, we're kicking off our Saturday Workshop Programme with a 2-week series on GIROS (turns in tango).
We'll look at different variations of giros, working towards greater precision, elegance and fluidity.
And we'll see some gorgeous decorative footwork for followers too!

As the nights draw in, it is good to have something to look forward to. We'll be announcing our next Tango Movement Night Out very soon.
We look forward to seeing you on the dance floor soon!
Our Summer School is now coming to an end and we would like to give a huge thank you to our guest teachers Junior Cervila and Guadalupe Garcia for taking superb care of our students!
We really couldn't have asked for a better tango couple to take care of our classes. Thank you for sharing your wealth of experience and tango wisdom with Tango Movement!
Emails, texts and messages from our students flowed in unsolicited, telling us how much they were enjoying the classes. Here is just one message that really seems to sum up the feeling:
"So the first thing is that these two are really, really nice people - despite the celebrity status the lesson was not about them, they were humble and 100 percent there for the students not themselves. I would say you and Kim could leave your students with them at anytime secure in the knowledge they will be very well taken care of.
Next thing is that they are excellent English speakers and very adept at handling a large number of students and keeping a nice momentum of lesson content among different level students. It is a skill to make sure every student gets some degree of individual attention during the class and they excelled at this.
Lastly, they strike a really good balance in the flow of partner rotations, introducing new steps and sequences, and detailed explanations - not too overwhelming but something new for everyone to work on. They really are consummate professionals as teachers and it would be great if you can arrange something like this again next year with them."
Wishing Junior and Guadalupe a fantastic trip back and looking forward to them returning with us as guest teachers again! Thank you again from Tango Movement!
David and I will be back from this Thursday teaching all our drop-in classes. Our Saturday courses will start from 2nd September.
