Learn to dance TANGO in Wraysbury
Friday evenings 7-8pm at the Wraysbury Hub (former Baptist Church) High St
What’s coming up next?
The numbers will be limited due to floor space and comfort and so please first contact us here to register your interest and/or to ask for any further information.
A dozen dancers from Brighton to Newbury, from Oxford to Southampton will come to dance, to join the Taster session, and to talk to you about the wider community of UK tango. Tango is more than a class it’s a social community in UK and abroad.
COVID Safety: to ensure everyone’s comfort we ask that you show an NHS Pass or evidence of a current negative lateral flow test. We will not keep any personal details.
If you currently do not have a dance partner then let us know as there may be others in a similar situation who can then pair up.
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.
Aims of the Wraysbury Tango Club:
- To promote tango music, dance, and culture;
- To encourage local people to enjoy this unfamiliar genre;
- To establish a thriving tango community;
- To socialise with other tango groups in the UK and beyond.
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. See a few Testimonials. 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…
