OMG, has it been 8 years already?
After a few years in the making, mid 2011, we officially launched Tanguito, Argentine Tango Academy, with the idea of providing tango classes with a yearly curriculum, a milonga (which actually started in 2014, we called it Los Angelitos), free class videos for students, trips to Buenos Aires and beyond. I still remember our very first private student – we had a cat back then, and the cat had decided to interfere with the lesson in a systematic (and efficient) way. It was a lot of fun, to avoid this cheeky moving feline – a bit like in a crowded milonga with unruly dancers, but with an added moving tail for extra challenge.
8 years later, here we are, thanks to you – on the way we added a clothing collection (now being sold in Buenos Aires), a London festival, a trip to Japan, and a few other things to make sure we are never unoccupied.
So, a big thank you for your continued support. Long live tango in London! We hope you can join our party on the 6th of October.

Straight from Buenos Aires! We are thrilled to welcome the 2014 tango salon world champion Lorena Gonzalez together with Gaston Camejo to teach eight classes in London this October.

Flight BA0245 dropped me in Buenos Aires on January 19. Argentinians like to do things big. Big steaks. Strong Malbec. Sickeningly sweet dulce de leche (sorry amigos, we love you to bits but we think our Nutella tastes better than your dulce de leche). Melancholy tangos that grab you by the heart and won’t let you go. Sizzling hot summers.
