Tango Fundamentals Courses

Tango Fundamentals Courses

Leaders and Couples: The 2019-2020 courses have now started, but there are spaces for two unaccompanied leaders and two couples at Level 2.

Amongst others, this course would be ideal for anyone with previous Argentine Tango experience who has not danced for a while and who feels the need for some revision.

Please contact Mandy via Mandy AT suffolktango.org.uk if interested.

Suffolk Tango runs a progressive series of Tango Fundamentals courses, taught by Richard and Mandy, that will provide people with a solid grounding in the basics.

There are three Levels. Level 1 classes for beginners are held on Thursdays, Level 2 classes are held on Mondays, and Level 3 classes are held on Wednesdays.

All Tango Fundamentals classes are held at Martlesham Community Centre, directions to which can be found here. Please note however that while Level 1 classes are held in the main hall, Level 2 and Level 3 classes are held in the adjacent Richards Room.

There is an upper limit on the number of couples that will be admitted to each course 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.

If you wish to begin learning Tango as a beginner, click here for details of how to register your interest in the next, or indeed a future Level 1 class, and for information about other ways in which to get started.

If however you have danced Tango before and are not sure which course to attend, please contact Mandy via Mandy AT suffolktango.org.uk.

It may be possible to join a Tango Fundamentals course that has already started, particularly if you have previous Argentine Tango dance experience. If you are interested in this possibility, again please contact Mandy via Mandy AT Suffolktango.org.uk .
