Hello! I'm Sophia (Alvarez) de Lautour - the principal instructor of So Tango and the current Australian tango champion. Since 2001 I have helped literally thousands of people in Sydney to learn to dance Argentine Tango. My co-teacher is Paul (Pablito) Warren, a talented and entertaining teacher. Together we draw upon a combined tango experience of over 34 years! 

We offers group and private dance lessons in North Sydney and the Eastern suburbs of Sydney.

The popularity of Argentine tango as a social dance is certainly growing in Sydney where it is now possible to dance every night, often with a choice of venues. To get a taste of the social form of tango (the style we teach) here's a video of a typical 'Milonga' (tango dance event) in Buenos Aires...

The social form of tango is fun to learn. It's accessible and does not require prior dance experience. You can dance the tango if you can walk and hold someone in your arms.   

It's also growing more popular as a wedding dance because it's such a beautiful partner dance and a real audience pleaser with its inherent romance and drama.
