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!

The last month has been an exciting time for us because we have finally - and for the first time - opened our very own tango studio, “Studio Movement”.

The studio is the perfect size for for small groups. It has already proved popular with our students to practice in with their tango partners or a small group of friends. We want you to feel that it is your “tango home from home”!

We’ll be launching a new website very soon where you’ll be able to check availability at any time and book the studio.

NB All Tango Movement group classes will still take place in our regular West End locations (Soho and Bloomsbury) and the City (Moorgate). Click here for our group timetable.
