We were happy to welcome a new intake of Beginners on the first week of our Tango Crash Course last Saturday.

As always, it was a complete pleasure to unlock some of the secrets of Argentine tango to people who for the most part had never experienced the dance before.

We never get tired of seeing eyes light up with surprise when they discover that tango is not all that it seems and that there is much more to it than meets the eye.

And, as is often the case, it is not only the teachers who inspire the students, but the students who can inspire the teachers!

It always amazes me how a lot of the most interesting questions and the most astute observations arise in our Beginners classes. Perhaps it is because Beginners are fresh to tango, seeing it for the very first time.

Last Saturday, one of our brand new students made a brilliant comparison of tango to a game of tennis.

Yes, in tennis you have an opponent and in tango you have a partner. But despite this completely different dynamic, the connections between the two are strong.

Tango, like tennis, is a game of action and a response. In both disciplines, you don’t know what the other will do in any given moment. And indeed before that moment in time, your partner doesn’t know himself. Your decision as to how to respond to your partner’s action must therefore be made immediately and once the decision is made, it must be adhered to. In this way, fluidity between the two partners is maintained.

And in tango, add to the mix the ingredients of music, creativity and beauty, and you can imagine you have a pretty addictive combination!

Thank you to all our wonderful new students for your energy, enthusiasm and sense of fun. We can’t wait to reveal more about Argentine tango to you over the next month and beyond!

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.
