Welcome to Suffolk Tango

Suffolk Tango is a non-profit-making organisation building a vibrant Argentine Tango dancing community in Suffolk.

Covid: No checks, but PLEASE don’t come if you are feeling less than 100% or have been in contact with someone infected with Covid 19.

Once you dance Argentine Tango you become intoxicated by the music and the special connection with your partner. Argentine Tango is an improvised dance where the man leads according to what he hears in the music, the lady feels as if she were one of the instruments. We mainly dance to the rich music from the Golden Age (1940s) of tango but we also like to include some contemporary music to broaden the appeal.

Here is a video about why Argentine tango is so special (it’s in English after the first 60 seconds)

We run classes periodically in Henley, near Ipswich. We also run Milongas (tango dance nights) in Stratford St. Andrew and have regular Practicas (practice sessions) in Martlesham Heath. We work closely with adjacent groups in Norfolk, Essex, Diss, Bury St Edmunds, Colchester and Cambridge.
