Drop-In Evenings on Thursdays during July and August 2021

Suffolk Tango Fundamentals classes remain suspended, but Suffolk Tango is pleased to announce that Drop-In Evenings, open only to those who have previously attended one of the regular weekly classes at Martlesham Community Centre or The Richards Room, have been scheduled on the following dates:

  • Thursday 22nd July, 2021
    • This will be the first Suffolk Tango event since the start of coronavirus restrictions, and will feature a spot by Suffolk Tango’s very own Tango band, “Tango Innominado
  • Thursday 29th July, 2021
  • August dates to be announced

Each Drop-In Evening will be held in the Martlesham Community Hall between 7.30pm and 10.00pm, and will commence with a 20-minute techniques class.

Admission: £5 on the door, and  you will be able to pay by credit/debit card.

These evenings will be ideal for students who wish to reconnect with their class mates, either through dancing or simply with a chat over coffee.


Tango Fundamentals Courses – Currently Suspended

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, plus Beginners’. The next Beginners’ course  commences on Monday 2nd November, 2020.

Level 1 classes are being held on Wednesdays, in conjunction with the Level 2 classes.

Level 3 classes are being held on Thursdays.

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

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 cost of each 5-week module of each course is £45.

If you wish to begin learning Tango as a beginner, click here for details of how to register your interest in the forthcoming, or indeed a future Beginners’ 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 .
