It's possible to join our courses in the first two weeks. Still possible after that but if you're a complete beginner you'll need a catch up private lesson or two depending on how late into the term you start. Many of our students take a combination of group and private lessons to complete the beginners series. Contact Sophia for more options and pricing.

Message from the Principal Instructor of SoTango

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 Pavel Wagner...

Here I dance with Pedro Alvarez - on a morning TV show in NZ...

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!
