Argentine tango lessons offered

Local tango dancer with dance teaching experience offers tuition in Argentine tango. (This is not the same as ballroom tango.) Can offer a place for you to dance or will teach in your own home (you'll need a wood or stone floor). You do not need any previous dance experience.

I have studied in Buenos Aires and London and am happy to pass on some of the techniques you need to enjoy this amazing dance.

Re: Argentine tango lessons offered

Given the enthusiasm of people like Lee, Tammy and I would like to run group lessons in St Margarets. We've found an affordable location, so all we need is enough pupils to make it worthwhile. We'd concentrate on basic technique (like Lee describes) with some fancy stuff as people grow in confidence. We think we could do this for £10 for an hour's lesson and a short time to practice after. We're looking at an evening in the week.

A group session with just two or three people turning up is just embarrassing for all involved, so we really need to know if people are interested before we start. Learning the tango does require some commitment (it isn't that easy) but it's well within the competence of anyone who has the use of both legs, regardless of age. You don't have to be especially fit (though you will get fitter as you dance) and it does open up a whole world of tango events and social activities in London (and around the world - especially in Argentina). Tammy and I are both convinced that it's more important to dance than to dance perfectly, so we do expect to have fun with our tango.

If people are interested, could they reply here or contact me directly on TWTPR@aol.com

Thanks

Tom

Re: Argentine tango lessons offered

Thanks Tom for all the help. I decided to take about 15 hours of private lessons with Tom and classes with a number of other teachers where class sizes were usually between 6 and 30 people. I wanted to dance with lots of different partners and also see how differently teachers taught the subject. The basic steps of tango are not necessarily difficult to learn but to do them well and on a crowded dance floor is a great deal harder. Tom teaches technique really well and without technique it is very difficult to progress. He is the perfect starting point for learning tango and even came up with three different partners for me to accompany. I often found that I would learn a new set of steps in one of the general classes and then come back and refine it with him. The trouble with the classes is that both partners learn the steps and know what to expect; so whilst at the end of the lesson there is a feel good factor, one has not really learnt the technique necessary properly to lead the steps to another partner who has not just undertaken the same class. Tom also taught me a number of different steps but most importantly works on getting into and out of those steps, rather than learning them in isolation. I strongly recommend Tom to all dancers, new, improving or experienced.

Re: Argentine tango lessons offered

If you can get a group, I'm very happy to teach it but I'm not prepared to take the risk and organisation involved in hiring a venue - so it's just private lessons at the moment. Richmond Adult Community College used to teach tango and responded positively to the suggestion that they offer it again - if you ring their head of dance, Dawn Haynes, on 8891 5907 × 8935, it might nudge them to do this.

I'd love to teach a group if you can find the people and the venue. If any organisations would like to try a feel of tango one day, let me know and I'll turn up.

For anyone who watched 'Strictly Come Dancing' last week - this is NOT ballroom tango. I have taught a residential course for ballroom dancers who wanted to learn Argentine Tango and almost every element was different. Many of the things that ballroom dancers do are specifically avoided in Argentine tango.
