Is anybody out there able to recommend a local reliable garage for a forthcoming MOT test?

I'm fairly new to the area and it's difficult to find any reviews or feedback on this kind of thing.

Any advice gratefully received!

Would you be interested in group lessons in tango?

If you scroll down this page to 'Argentine tango lessons offered' you'll see I'm trying to find out if there'd be interest in group lessons in Argentine tango one evening a week. I'm posting it separately here because most people will miss it below but there are details there, including comments from someone who has had lessons with me. If you are at all interested in dancing, do scroll down and have a look and let me know here or at if you think you would come to a group class.

Re: Would you be interested in group lessons in tango?

We're still short of critical mass but we live in hope.

In an attempt to generate more interest, Tammy and I will be dancing at the St Margarets Family Fun Day (w) on Sunday (14th). We're only on for 3 minutes around lunchtime so don't blink or you'll miss us.

If you're interested in tango, do say, 'Hello.'

Re: Would you be interested in group lessons in tango?

So we danced a tango (just the one) at the St Margarets Family Fun Day. We had been asked to turn up but the event was rather geared to children so I don't know if they particularly appreciated the tango. We were interested in watching the street dance, though and the little girl with her Irish dancing was lovely.

If any of you were there and enjoyed the tango, do let us know.

Re: Would you be interested in group lessons in tango?

I've had some interest in this but almost entirely from women. Are there no men who want to sweep the women of St Margarets off their feet?

Historically, tango was often danced by two men, with only the very best dancers having any chance of dancing with a woman. The dance was seen as an opportunity to demonstrate just how 'macho' the men were.

Come on, gentlemen. Any takers?

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

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.

Hi tom

I am interested in learning the tango do you do group lessons in the area or just private lessons thanks ruth

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.
