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.

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...
