So much Fun!

Here's how to book. Bookings are essential - to enable gender balanced classes. We have a team of assistants we can call in to balance up the classes. 

Read here about our very reasonable rates and special offer.

Read here what others say about us

"Difficult to put words to the experience...When they dance they never cease to inspire and touch me with their collected intensity, tenderness and grace... Both Sophia and Paul are consumate teachers - breaking down such an art form into tiny precise chunks with such classic style. 
What is so impressive is how they are spontaneously able to tailor each step to the students present on the night and patiently understand what each of us needs to 'get it'. 
So it is with huge respect and appreciation that I thank them for all that they share of the spirit, love and intense joy of Tango - and the dedication they have when sharing their skill with us - and for bringing together such a great group of people to dance with. 
Thank you! It has brought so much into my life!" (Cherry Manfield, Dec 2015, early childhood teacher, film-maker)

If you are unable to attend on these dates you can cover the same content through private one to one coaching.

You can attend either group or private coaching with or without a partner. Rotation of partners is encouraged but optional.

Tango at  the markets - a feast for the senses!
Why not combine your lesson with a visit to Marrickville's amazing organic markets. The markets are open every Sunday from 9am - 3pm, rain, hail or shine. Click here for more details.
"From the eclectic to the eccentric, from organic to conventional, eco-friendly, chai-tentingly chillaxing this market would have to be the best Organic Market in Sydney's Inner West."

How to book
☆ Numbers are limited. Bookings are essential for the free lesson ☆
1) To check availability and book please email to info@so-tango.com:
your name and mobile number. Make sure to include in the header 'Marrickville Free Workshop'.  We respect your privacy and will not share your details with any third party.

If you turn up on the day without a booking - the cost for the Workshop is $10 (discounted from our casual rate of $25). 

Please make sure to book - not only to save money and secure your place - but also because this workshop's success depends on knowing in advance how many men and women are attending. We bring in a team of experienced dancers to help balance the gender makeup of the group. It's a lot more fun for newbies when we can do that! 

2) You can invite friends to this workshop but each person must book individually to secure the free lesson.

3) When I receive your email (and assuming availability) I will include your name on the free list and email you details about... 
☆ A Special Offer available only to people attending this free workshop! 
☆ What to wear 
☆ What to expect 

Feel free to contact Sophia if you have any questions.
