  • Practica. In addition you are encouraged to come to the Sunday Practicas where there is usually a short all-levels techniques class followed by dancing/practice.

If you are not sure which course to attend please contact Mandy via Mandy AT (We have used AT instead of @ to avoid spamrobots sending us junk mail, replace ‘AT’ with ‘@’).

Each of the courses runs with a maximum of ten couples in order to allow for individual attention and for members of the group to become friends.  The course cost is £40 per person per 5-week module.

Directions to the Richard’s Room

The Year 1 Class, Mondays

We start the year with a special 5-week block from Cliff and Rosemary introducing you to the basics of dancing to the faster pace of milonga music.  Ideal for those who have done no milonga or for those who want a gentle refresher.  To complement the faster pace of milonga music they will also be showing you how to dance slow and smoothly to slower tango music.

  • Jan 7th, 14th, 21st 28th and Feb 4th

This 5-week block will take place at St Mary’s Church Centre, Market Hill, Woodbridge, IP12 4LP (because the Richard’s Room is being used to top up the Year 1 fundamentals numbers).

Richard and Mandy then continue at the Richard’s Room, Martlesham Heath to build up your tango in the following sessions:

  • 25th Feb, Mar 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th
