Our Summer School is now coming to an end and we would like to give a huge thank you to our guest teachers Junior Cervila and Guadalupe Garcia for taking superb care of our students!

We really couldn't have asked for a better tango couple to take care of our classes. Thank you for sharing your wealth of experience and tango wisdom with Tango Movement!

Emails, texts and messages from our students flowed in unsolicited, telling us how much they were enjoying the classes. Here is just one message that really seems to sum up the feeling:

"So the first thing is that these two are really, really nice people - despite the celebrity status the lesson was not about them, they were humble and 100 percent there for the students not themselves. I would say you and Kim could leave your students with them at anytime secure in the knowledge they will be very well taken care of.

Next thing is that they are excellent English speakers and very adept at handling a large number of students and keeping a nice momentum of lesson content among different level students. It is a skill to make sure every student gets some degree of individual attention during the class and they excelled at this.

Lastly, they strike a really good balance in the flow of partner rotations, introducing new steps and sequences, and detailed explanations - not too overwhelming but something new for everyone to work on. They really are consummate professionals as teachers and it would be great if you can arrange something like this again next year with them."

Wishing Junior and Guadalupe a fantastic trip back and looking forward to them returning with us as guest teachers again! Thank you again from Tango Movement!

David and I will be back from this Thursday teaching all our drop-in classes. Our Saturday courses will start from 2nd September.

Dreamy Tango 22-08-2017

Passionate, fiery, sexy? What words would you use to describe tango?

How about soft, dreamy, romantic?

Well, if you've never danced tango before, you might be forgiven if these words don't immediately spring to mind when you hear the word tango. Because they go against the stereotype of tango that is portrayed by the mainstream media.

But, from the very first time you take a tango class, you'll realise that there is a lot more to tango than first meets the eye.

Our students, Oleg and Oksana, started learning tango with us around two years ago. And when they told us that they wanted to prepare a tango for their wedding dance, we knew that we could help them something really special ...

We're always really excited when we have a new wedding dance couple. Not many people can say that in their line of work they help dreams come true. But this is just how we feel when we create a tango wedding dance for someone's big day.

Oleg and Oksana chose a beautiful classical piece for their dance - "Gabriel's Oboe" from the film The Mission - rather than a traditional tango.

The music was soft and romantic and set a perfect dreamy tone for their smooth, elegant movements. We're sure that there wasn't a dry eye in the house!

Oleg and Oksana we'd like to thank you for choosing us as your tango teachers and for being such rewarding students to teach. It's been a true pleasure.

Congratulations to the beautiful couple!

Tango Love 11-08-2017

It’s not every day that you have the privilege of attending the wedding of a couple who met through your classes.

And I can tell you, it is quite a unique feeling.

I always remember Irina saying that Tango Movement should change its name to “tangomatch.com.". Because so many students in our classes who were falling for each other that year.

And she should know. She was one of them!

Hendrik joined our classes back in 2009 and has been one of our regulars for years. Irina started coming quite a bit later - in 2012. For a while their paths didn’t cross since she was only attending our Beginners classes.

But tango eventually brought them together. Now they are both beautiful tango dancers and a beautiful couple. A tango match made in heaven!

People meet in many different ways of course, but a shared passion like tango can connect people beyond the three minutes that a tango lasts.

Yesterday was an amazing afternoon spent celebrating Hendrik and Irina’s marriage, surrounded by a huge group of Tango Movement students.

We wish this lovely couple many years of love, health, happiness …. and tango together.
