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!
