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: Speed - Theme: Barridas

In this class, we has a look at a classic tango step, the barrida where one partner sweeps the other's foot on the floor. We had a look at how to play with the speed and energy of the barrida to generate soft barridas or high energy ones.

Dimension: Immersion - Theme: Ganchos

Ganchos, these emblematic tango steps! Ganchos are steps where one partner (often the follower) kicks under the other's leg and enganches are steps where one partner (again normally the follower) wraps one leg around the partner's leg. In this class, we saw a few classic combinations of both ganchos and enganches

Dimension: Immersion - Theme: Cross and barridas

In this class, we saw a pot-pourri of steps we really like from the Golden Age, including classic and unusual combinations using the cross as well as a barrida and gancho combination that stole our heart.

Dimension: Immersion - Theme: Playing with different time signatures

Playing with different time signatures, e.g when the leader and the follower don't follow the same rythm, is an incredibly powerful tool to add spice and personality to your tango. In this class, we looked at some classic steps that use different time signatures.

Dimension: Immersion - Theme: Caminatas

Tango is a walking dance and therefore the walk plays a large role in making your tango expressive. In this class, we looked at a few old fashioned and traditional tango walks, with some leaders' adornments.

Dimension: Axis - Theme: Colgadas

If we ran a survey, milongueros across the world would probably say that colgadas are the scariiiiiest step there is! Don't fret though, in this class, we saw how to use the concept of shared axis in a safe, fun and beautiful way.
