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!

Dimension: Directions - Theme: Rebounds and changes of weight

In this class, we had a look at how rebounds make us change directions. We did a simple rebound for beginners and for intermediates looked at more advanced versions where the leader and the follower move independently from one another, including a very original step where the rebound leads to a pasada.

La Milonga Que Faltaba – Grand Opening 12.10.2017

By |September 15th, 2017|

♫♬ La Milonga Que Faltaba! ♫♬

Llegó a buena hora, la milonga que faltaba.
Que salgan a la pista, los más tigres que quedaron
y que bailen como antaño se bailaba,
con cortes y requiebros bajo el techo de la parra
la milonga tan porteña que faltaba.

There was something missing on Thursday nights… A milonga with a large and beautiful floor, plenty of space, invited DJs, Golden Age/trad only, and more importantly a milonga that truly belongs to London, by Londoners and for Londoners! Here it is, the ‘Milonga Que Faltaba’!

=== Wait! What does it mean? ===

Rather than your usual milonga, the Milonga Que Faltaba is an open space where everyone can get involved, come and DJ, come and perform, and participate in its organisation. A truly unique concept in London!

=== Co-hosts ===

Alex Barberi + Winston Veerender + Paul Aitchison + Tanguito

=== Every Thursday evening ===

» special workshop by invited couple: open level (except beginners), 7.30 to 9pm
» dancing 9pm – midnight (extdd. on 12.10)
» an invited DJ
» one tanda at 11pm by anyone: simply put your name down up to the day before to play your favourite tanda*. A few rules apply for your tanda: (1) tango only, 4 songs, (2) same orchestra and style (with singer or not, and melodic vs rhythmic) and (3) same period
» one performance at 11.45 (one song, max. 3 min) by any couple: : simply put your name down up to the day before if you want to perform*. Great to get the exposure to the London scene, or if you are competing at the championship and want some experience!
» free coffee, tea and cakes

* first come, first served!

Lead or follow?

By |September 14th, 2017|

Lead or follow? As you will know, there’s sometimes more of one gender than another in group lessons and milongas. Rather than an issue, it is, in fact, a great opportunity for men and women to try the other role. What happened back in the days?

Dimension: Directions - Theme: Creative ways to stay in the line of dance

The idea in this class was to explore creative ways to go forward in the line of dance. With beginners, we started with a 360 degree pivot from the cross. In the intermediate class, we looked at a synchronised lapiz adornment, then a pivot to the right and last a very nice sequence using a change of front.

What makes tango more relevant to us than the “bourrée Auvergnate”?

By |August 31st, 2017|

Tango was born on the other side of the globe, over a century ago. Why is it still relevant to us now, when the bourrée Auvergnate and other folklore dances around the world are dying a slow death...

Making tango diamonds shine brighter

By |August 11th, 2017|

A gentleman or lady wanting to learn tango in Buenos Aires during the Golden Age (1935-55) would have had a very different experience from ours. No dropping by a dance studio on the way back home for a cheeky tango class!
