What is Tango?
Argentine Tango is a social dance. Most people associate it with dramatic shows, lots of flicking legs, turning heads, and even some lifts. Those moves do not exist in the Argentinian social dance that is best described as two people in a walking embrace. The music, from 1930s/1940s Buenos Aires, is never heard on UK radio or television and yet is adored by thousands across the country who gather in village halls and community centres to listen, dance, and socialise.
Who are we?
We are David & Marion, we have been dancing Argentine Tango for nearly 20 years, and teaching and running tango events (in UK and Europe) since 2012. We have Tango Teacher diplomas and are guest teachers in an instructional DVD.
But why in Wraysbury?
We have lived here for nearly 30 years so that’s a good start. For the last 10 years we have been teaching weekly and running large tango events outside the area (in West Berks) but our own post-lockdown recovery plan is to stay closer to home.
We would be delighted if you joined us on this new tango journey…
