Inside every student who comes to our classes, there is a tango dancer waiting to come out! And our job to make sure this happens.

To bring out the best in people, we need to guide, challenge and support them and find new ways harness their creativity. As teachers we need to keep evolving so our lessons remains fresh, dynamic and stimulating.

This year, we have prepared an exciting and varied programme of classes for you!

Next Saturday 4th & 11th March, we’ll be privileged to have LIVE MUSIC in our classes again.

This is pretty unusual in a tango class! So why live music?

As you may have experienced already, there’s nothing quite like dancing to live music. It transforms the mood and feel of the dance. It brings you into the moment and stirs up powerful emotions.

Why limit this feeling to the milonga when we can bring it to our classes too?

Live music somehow brings the music closer and makes it more present. It therefore presents a unique, innovative and fascinating opportunity to study musicality.

Our musicians not only play beautiful, spine-tingling music, but they also work regularly in the training of professional dancers at Rambert and Pineapple Dance Studios. As the class progresses, you’ll begin to notice that they are interacting with the class. The music will change as David or I work on different tools for interpretation, becoming in turn mellow, upbeat, lyrical, playful ... It is a very exciting way to work.

Don’t miss this innovative opportunity to train your musical ear, sharpen your footwork and enjoy gorgeous music!

It’s been a funny old week in London town.

Tuesday and Wednesday brought a tube strike, bringing swathes of London to a halt. And Thursday brought Storm Doris, bringing down trees and causing yet more travel disruption.

But rain, shine, storm or strike, tangueros need their weekly class! A student last year walked from the City to the West End during a tube strike to make one of our classes!

We knew a mere tube strike and storm would not keep you away! We were there ready to receive you and it was great to have a crowd of you in class with us this week.

It reminded me of a conversation we had with our longest standing students just the other week. He was one of our very first students when we started Tango Movement back in 2007.

We get a lot of amazing feedback about our classes but when we asked him what made him come back year after year, his feedback was to the point:

”You’re always there. I know if I turn up at 8 pm on a Tuesday, Wednesday or whenever, you’ll be there, starting on time as usual.”

It sounds like a small thing, but we appreciate that Londoners lives are highly pressured. And if you make the effort to turn up to a class, we will make an equal effort to be there, with the same energy, the same professionalism and the same care that you’ve grown to expect for us.

Bring on the storms and strikes, we’ll tango on!

I'm very excited to teach my very first Ladies Technique Small Group Workshop this afternoon in Studio Movement.

The purpose of the Workshop is to work on technique with a limited number of participants, maximising the personal attention I am able to give to each student and enabling me to tailor the material to best suit the level of those attending.

We have a lovely group today and I'm really looking forward to some excellent work!

Today's Workshop sold out within 24 hours of me advertising it so I sense there is some demand! I will definitely be running similar Workshops throughout the year for different levels: Beginners/Improvers, Intermediate/Advanced etc.

Please always feel free to let me know if there are any topics you have a burning desire to cover with me. You never know, you may just see them come up in the next Workshop publicity! ;-)

Keep your eyes peeled and ears open for the next Small Group Workshop and be sure to grab your place quick!
