SoTango instructors Sophia and Pablito share over 34 years of combined tango experience and look forward to sharing that with you! Through their individual tango journeys they've developed a teaching approach that is So Connecting, Soulful and Fun!
By learning tango you'll experience a beautiful and unique way of connecting with other people. You'll get to connect with fellow students and Sydney's tango aficionados through SoTango's fun social events, tango parties ('milongas') and outings to other milongas around Sydney.

At SoTango you'll learn that tango is so much more than just a dance - it's a 'moving meditation' and a conversation of movement between you and another soul. You don't find its mystery from memorising choreography or mimicking other dancers: you find it within. Many of our new students are pleasantly surprised that tango is so much more than they expected; that it's such a spontaneous, soulful dance, and a wonderful way to practice being present.
It's a no brainer that you learn and progress best when you're relaxed and having fun - so we make sure the learning ambience is welcoming and light hearted. At SoTango you'll be taught technique and musicality which is based on precision, captures the essence of tango, and is flavoured with a good dose of fun!Sophia & Pablito: photo by Susan L'Estrange
At SoTango we...
Hello! I'm Sophia (Alvarez) de Lautour - the principal instructor of So Tango and a national 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 tango teacher.
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.
Tango is also popular for performances. Here I dance with my good friend Pavel Wagner...
Until we chat, or meet on the dance floor...
Have a lovely day!
