Thinking of taking a tango lesson but not sure if it's the right dance for you? 
If you're hesitating because you think tango is too difficult, you're too old - or too young, not fit enough or you just can't dance, then read...


Our classes are on Mondays in North Sydney, Wednesdays in Bondi and as of 2018 we'll be offering classes in Glebe on Tuesdays. 

Go here for more on Sophia, a national tango champion and her team of dedicated instructors and assistants. Sophia has taught literally thousands of people to tango, some of whom are now tango instructors themselves - she is a teacher of teachers! 

So Connecting, Soulful and Fun are the words that best describe SoTango! Go here for more on the SoTango philosophy and here for testimonials.

Hello! I'm Sophia de Lautour (Alvarez) - the principal instructor of SoTango and a national tango champion. Since 2001 I have helped literally thousands of people in Sydney to learn to dance Argentine Tango. In Sydney I am known as 'a teacher of teachers'.  It makes me so proud that some of my ex-students are now teaching!  

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...

Tango is also popular for performances. Here I dance with my good friend Pavel Wagner...
Feel free to contact me to discuss anything to do with tango.
Until we chat, or meet on the dance floor, have a lovely day!
