Welcome!

We are Tanguito ('cute little tango' in spanish, pronounced tang-eeto).

We live and breathe tango and have been told our passion is contagious.

We are London based and do all things tango-related: classes, milongas, corporate events, clothing & even holidays to Buenos Aires. If you wonder what tango is all about (or love it already), we would love to hear from you!

Tanguito’s 6th Anniversary Party

By |July 12th, 2017|

It’s been an amazing adventure we had with you and hundreds or passionate tango dancers! Is it possible to summarise 6 years of tango love? OK, let’s try…

Thanks to you we’ve taken a few tango steps in the last years: Tango workshops and private tuition every day, a weekly milonga, a tango fashion range (to date, nearly a thousand orders sent to 25 countries!), a yearly London festival (the ‘CHE’) now in its fourth edition, tango holidays to Buenos Aires and Japan, and of course working with stunning talents including Juan Martin Carrara and Stefania Colina, Daniel Naccuchio and Cristina Sosa and many more. And more importantly, so many friendships developed.

So let’s celebrate these 6 years, and Nati’s birthday (turning 18 this month… humm more or less…) with a grand afternoon of tango, cakes and friendship.

PROGRAMME: SUNDAY 23.07 at LOS ANGELITOS

» 2pm Beginner & Improver class
» 3pm Intermediate & Advanced workshop, THEME: steps and combinations that Nati loves! (It’s her birthday after all, but rest assured, you will love these steps!)
» 4.30pm to 8pm: MILONGA. A huge birthday cake. Party. And lots of tandas.
» Entry: £12 for the class, £16 for the workshop (incl. milonga), £8 for the milonga.
» Non dancers are welcome: we will open the second hall (practice hall) so they can try their first tango steps if they like!
» LOCATION: Unity Hall, 277A Upper st., Angel N1 2TZ (Angel tube)

» And so we can plan enough cake and drinks for everyone, please confirm your attendance by sending us a quick RSVP MAIL >.

Closing your eyes: cierra los ojos

By |June 30th, 2017|

The Argentines often use the word "entregar" when talking about the skill of following, which means "to give in" or "to surrender" to the lead. In my mind, it only is possible when followers close their eyes (and gentlemen) keep their gaze unfocused.

♪ Tuesday Tanda – Ángel D’agostino (tango)

By |June 27th, 2017|

This week is a tango tanda by Ángel D'agostino, the pianist and director who also was also an excellent dancer. D'Agostino built on D'arienzo strong and clear beat but made it smoother and softer.

Tuesday Tanda – Angel D’Agostino (tango)

By |June 20th, 2017|

Every Tuesday, we publish a tanda to get you inspired for the week. Today, we picked a tanda by the two "angels", D'agostino and Vagas, with a version of the beautiful song Madreselva, composed by Canaro, and which we translated earlier last week.
