Welcome to SoTango!

If you've never tried tango before I invite you to take a lesson with us. It could change your life!

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...

And here is footage from the iconic tango night club in Buenos Aires - La Viruta. 
Watch how the feet connect with the floor and play with the music!

Tango is also popular for performances. Here I dance with Pavel Wagner...

Here is a recent end of class demo with Paul (Pablito) Warren...

Check out this TED talk about how Tango can be addictive!

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!
