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: Giros and planeos

In this class, we started with the basic giro to the right of the leader. For the intermediates, we looked at several variants where we mixed giros and planeos for a lovely, romantic feel.

Dimension: Directions - Theme: Backward ocho combination

In this class, we started with the classic backward ocho. For intermediates, we looked at a double backward ocho which is very musical and nice on rhythmical orchestras or at the end of musical phrases and a mini giro which can be led at a sandwich.

In this class, we started with the classic forward ocho. For intermediates, we looked at an adventurous combination using a deep sacada we sometimes call an invasion.

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.

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.

Dimension: Height - Theme: Grounding

In this class, we worked on what we call the grounding technique, where the leader uses a soft pressure to transmit information to the follower and we applied it to the cross. We first led a wide cross which transformed into a planeo, then applied the same concept to a lateral cross with the right leg and finished with a pivot on two feet which leads to a cross.

Dimension: Height - Theme: The quebrada

In this class, we focused on a step called the quebrada, where the leader goes down with his knees together. It is a very elegant posture which creates opportunities for a wide range of versions. In the intermediate class, we saw a lovely adornment for the follower, a boleo and a version of the quebrada from a change of front.

Dimension: Energy - Theme: Boleos

Boleos are high energy steps which come from a change of direction. In this class, we started with a simple boleo combination for the beginners. We then looked at a high back boleo which can be used in milongas as it is led within the embrace and we closed the class with a forward boleo.
