Continuing your tango learning on Mondays and Wednesdays

The grand tour of venues in Southampton to hold a tango lesson continues. With any luck the journey is at a happy rest for a while with the current venues: Mavericks on Mondays and the Slug and Lettuce on Wednesdays.

In both cases the floor is pretty decent, and the space much more private than with the previous venue, so fingers crossed! See us for full addresses and a map.

Continuing your Leaning

Firstly, well done to the recent Argentine Tango Fundamentals course graduates! The next course starts this Monday, 15th Oct. Remember, if you bring a friend, you get a free lesson! Full details and booking here:

Now, the main topic of this post is how to continue your tango learning while attending the weekly classes on Mondays and Wednesdays.

If you've been coming regularly on a Monday for a while now, then you'll know that the feedback and variations you get are different from the what the new beginners get. The aim being that you continue to be challenged.

From now on different content will be given in a more organized fashion. The group will be split into parts at different points in the lesson, with one group being introduced to the basics, while the other group(s) are given more challenging and stimulating variations and practice of the fundamentals.

Each lesson will have specific material for students of different experience levels. The idea is that even experienced dancers will feel that their tango has developed over the course of the 6 weeks.

So if you'd like to continue your tango learning, you are invited to continue to attend the Tango Fundamentals course held on the Monday sessions.

The same concept will apply to the Wednesday classes, which focus on more advanced tango concepts.

Lastly on this topic, making a habit of asking questions is a great way to increase your learning.


Thanks to all those who came to the Technique Booster workshop in Sept and made it such a fun occasion! The next one is being planned for the end of Oct or the beginning of Nov. If you'd like to spend the afternoon developing and refining your tango, getting in depth with the technique and spending enough time practicing for it to begin to sink into your body, then this is your chance!

If you'd like to attend the next Technique Booster afternoon workshop, please reply to this email with:
a) your preference for day (Sat, or Sun afternoon)
b) the tango topic(s) you'd most like to work on.


Enjoy your dancing, take care, and I hope to see you soon,
