You’ll find here a selection of blog posts specially dedicated to non tango dancers or recent beginners.
The tango world is a bit like a milonga tune: it suddenly speeds up and then a pause sneaks up on you without warning – that’s when you can breathe.
Our blog page is a bit similar, sometimes quiet and sometimes showing serious signs of hyperactivity. In any case, we’ll try to remain in control and call the tune. If you feel we’re sluggish, you can always send us a TASBO (PS: that’s a Tango ASBO).

This class closes the term dedicated to the tango embrace, one of our favourite dimensions. We reviewed some of the steps that we have covered in previous classes: media luna, back sacada, follower's forward walking. Why choose when you can have it all?
In this class, we explored giros that work really well on different types of music, slow or fast. We explored giros to the left and to the right, as well as giros on the beat and on the half beat. Quite a feast!
In this class, we explored giros that work really well on slow music: giros with static axis around the leader. We also threw in a few adornments for the leader, an enrosque and a lapiz for good measure! Time to shine, guys!
In this class, we explored some of our favourite vals cadenas. Vals are irresistible to dance to, so don't miss our learning steps that are designed to match the beauty of this dance.
If you like traditional tango salon, slow tangos are a joy to dance to. They enable self expression and intimate dancing in a way that ryhthmic tangos don't. For this class, we focused on how we could use the cross to dance on slow tangos. Simply beautiful.
For the end of our term, we reviewed our favourite steps, the corrida and some variants of the Americana.
