Wherever possible, students should remain after the classes and participate in the practica. It offers an environment focused on learning but with no formal teaching, although the teachers may offer assistance if required. It is easier to explore new ideas and repeat a difficult move many times, building up speed, smoothness and confidence, trying different ways to make it work and keep the connection. It is only through many repetitions that the subleties of balance, connection and movement can be ingrained, making a practica a valuable tool to anyone who really wants to progress their tango. The practica is generally regarded as an assisted session, when more experienced dancers may help out beginners or improvers if asked to do so. In a practica, everyone has something to contribute and to learn.

There is none of the formality of a milonga or formal dance, but if there are more women than men then it may be sensible for leaders to limit their partner to two dances. That way all the women have the opportunity to dance and this makes for a more enjoyable atmosphere. If women want to ask the men for a dance, then we encourage this as well.

The music played is excellent and is the more traditional Argentinian orchestras playing tango vals, pure tango and milonga.


Classes are also available in Manchester, Liverpool, Nottingham, Leeds/Bradford, Newcastle upon Tyne and Darlington.
