English Tango

English Tango, or Ballroom Tango, originally derived from the Argentine dance which arrived in Europe shortly before the First World War. You can still some influence of the original dance in the stealthy, considered, walking action, which is so different from the action employed in the other Ballroom dances.

We sometimes teach Tango in beginners courses. The elementary figures are suitable and the absence of rise and fall can be a boon. In order to give the dance that `Tango flavour', we like to wait until you are comfortable moving around together, so you can bring some attention to bear on matters of style.
