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!

Happy Students 19-02-2017

It's always great to re-connect with students who we haven't seen for a long time.

On Saturday, an old student returned to class after what we together worked out had been a 7 year break!

And it warmed our hearts to receive this message from her after class:

"Just want to say you guys are still giving the best lessons in London. Not many teachers care to correct our mistakes nowadays, not to mention it's always such a pleasure to watch you guys dancing. When I had my first lesson with you guys at the Plaza you weren't even married. How time flies. I'll definitely try to come for more lessons when I can."

And another email from another student (who we also have known for many years) after the very same workshop:

"I want to tell you that the class was great. Have learned a lot, it was hard but well explained, and ALL the men I danced with were working hard, helping me and were very nice to be with. This does not always happen in tango, but I think it is because you lead by example."

Thanks so much for giving us this feedback. It inspires and motivates to keep up what we're doing and improve on it year after year.

Here's to more happy customers, happy classes and happy tangos!
