Are you new to tango? Learn Argentine Tango in Angel, Islington with London’s highest publicly rated school
Watch out, our passion for tango is contagious!
In our classes, we use a yearly curriculum to produce happy, shiny, dancy people. We’d like you to enjoy tango and its culture, so we go beyond the steps and explore tango music and its “milongas”, these incredible tango parties where everything comes together like magic. Our Milonga ‘Los Angelitos’ is very welcoming – a perfect place to make friends.
Complete beginners: you can join the beginner class and stay a bit longer for the social dancing. We recommend starting with a private lesson to ease your way into group classes – most people do!

If you don’t have a partner, it’s absolutely fine, just check come on your own. When learning tango, it is customary to alternate dance partners every few songs – the best way to learn and to make new friends!
