OUR TEACHING

Our teaching is based on the methods taught in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the Home of Tango. From the outset we teach the fundamentals of the dance: good posture, balance, technique, body control, musicality, and elegance in your movements. Our aim is to produce confident tango dancers who can enjoy dancing socially. To attain this level of confidence it is crucial to consider correct posture, the embrace, and how to lead and follow this beautiful, improvised dance, not only at special workshops but at every class.


WORKSHOPS

We hold regular workshops with visiting teachers from Argentina, our next workshop will be in the May 2018, when Pablo Nievas will be visiting us from Buenos Aires in Argentina.
Following his highly succesful workshop on Pugliese, Michael Lavocah is returning to Westcourt Tango, to give a workshop on Carlos di Sarli on March 10th, further details to follow.

dance the beautiful dance of Argentine Tango

Social dancing is the main reason for learning Argentine Tango, and Westcourt Tango host regular events that are open to everyone and not just our students.

Our popular Argentine Tango Tea Dance held at Shepherdswell, normally on the 1st Sunday of the month and our bi monthly Milonga at Littlebourne are ideal occasions to dance, socialise with fellow dancers and enjoy tea or coffee and cakes. Our music is played in tandas, and is a mixture of traditional tango, vals and milonga with the occasional tanda of Nuevo and Neo.

Every Wednesday, after the intermediate/advanced class there is time for freestyle social dancing, with a seperate practice area.


LIVE MUSIC


Dancing to authentic Live Tango Music is an experience not to be missed and at Westcourt Tango we actively promote live Argentine Tango Music with some of the best Argentine Tango Musicians.

Our last Live Music Event was a Canterbury Festival Umbrella Event. when Corina Piatti and Frances Knight played at our Milonga at Littlebourne in October.
