I just have to say this out loud: we have the most wonderful, passionate, warm-hearted students anyone could wish for. We're incredibly grateful for the year we shared with you and can't wait to get started with the next one!

All our classes re-start on Tuesday 5th January. We’ll have our regular programme of drop-in classes for Beginners through to Advanced, our popular Saturday Beginners Crash Course - PLUS an exciting new programme of Saturday Workshops!

We’re happy to be starting the year with our lovely new studio for private classes. It feels so nice to teach in our own space and we know it creates a warmer and more welcoming atmosphere for our students.

This year, we promise to create more inspiring, innovative and supportive classes for you so you can take your tango to the next level and continue to enjoy all the magic that this dance has to offer.

To welcome in a fresh year, we will be celebrating on Saturday 23rd January at the Light Milonga in Shoreditch - our first Student Night Out of 2016! Please join us! More information will be posted on our News page shortly.

Wishing a very Happy New Year to all Tango Movers!

Last Tuesday 10th November, David and I were performed alongside Royal Ballet Principal, Marianela Nuñez, at the Argentine Ambassador’s Residence in an evening of Ballet and Tango.

The evening was attended by Ambassadors from all over the world, VIPs and members of the Anglo-Argentine Community.

Marianela Nuñez, together with Alejandro Parente, principal dancer of the Teatro Colon, Buenos Aires, performed a contemporary ballet piece to Astor Piazzolla’s “A Buenos Aires”. David and I performed two traditional tango pieces. And the evening’s programme was closed with Marianela and Alejandro performing the “Dying Swan” from Swan Lake.

Marianela Nuñez was born in Buenos Aires and trained at the Teatro Colon Ballet School before joining The Royal Ballet School at the the age of 15. She became a principal dancer of the Royal Ballet at the age of 20 and has performed leading roles in the classical, dramatic and contemporary repertoires.She is currently playing Juliet in the Royal Opera House’s production of Romeo and Juliet.

Tuesday’s performance was followed by a reception with Argentine gastronomy and wines. The Ambassador thanked the performers:

“One of the central aspects of our work in the United Kingdom is cultural diplomacy. Art, in all its expressions, improves relations, contributes to greater knowledge of our country, allows a greater understanding and promotes dialogue between the nations”

David and I were honoured to take part in this evening and represent tango in this important cultural setting.

Progress! Our brand new mirrors and ballet barres are up!

Studio Movement is really taking shape. And the barre has already been put to good use for tango technique practice and classes.

Next step: a studio website complete with a schedule to check day-to-day availability. Coming really soon!
