Argentine Tango classes taught by Graham and Nathalie at a small but growing network of venues in the south-east. Join us and discover the exciting world of Neotango, modern Argentine Tango with emphasis on enjoyment and freedom over unnecessary rules and traditions.

All our classes are drop-in, with no courses to book or specific days that you have to start. They are suitable for any age (from 18 upwards) and any fitness level, with any dance experience or none at all.

Our class evenings are split into three parts... a fundamentals session that is perfect for beginners whilst serving as a good reminder or warm-up for more experienced dancers, an improvers class where we look at something in more depth or complexity, and a practice session for you to try out what you have just learned. You only pay once for the evening - £9 per person in a regular class - and for that you can do any part of the evening or all of it, whichever you like.

Have your say:

Could you spare five minutes to tell us what you know (or think you know) about Argentine Tango? All answers are confidential and they will help us create the tango classes that people actually want, not just what we think people want!

Tango - Beginners and Improvers

Graham and Nathalie welcome you to our fun and friendly tango classes in South Norwood. 

  • 8.00pm - Tango fundamentals
  • 8.50pm - Break for practice... and tea!
  • 9.10pm - Improvers class
  • 10.00pm - 11.00pm - Practice, freestyle, and 1:1 help if you need it.

Improvers class theme: TBC

As always our improvers' class follows on from the fundamentals, and so we would encourage you to do both classes if possible.

X-Tango Neolonga

Welcome to the Tango Underground, where Graham's DJ sets will take your tango experience in completely new directions. With all the best neotango, nuevo, and alternative music throughout the evening, and a scattering of traditional added to the mix, there is something for everyone at X-Tango. Sometimes challenging, sometimes familiar, and sometimes completely unexpected, but always 100% danceable.

No tandas, no cortinas, and definitely no cabeceos! Just dancing from the beginning to the end of the evening.

£12 on the door or £10 if you pre-book at one of our classes or via our website. Free tea, coffee, water, squash, and nibbles. Cheap soft drinks. Bring your own alcohol if you want.

What do people say?

Tuesdays are one of the highlights of the week now I have tango. The classes are serious fun, in that learning to tango is an art and more complicated than many dances but the teaching makes it accessible and we always have a laugh. It's a lovely atmosphere and a great escape from the working week to just get absorbed in dancing and good music.

The teaching is inclusive so whether you are a beginner or an experienced dancer you'll learn new things and feel like you are making progress.

It's a good value class, plenty of individual tuition and time to dance and practice at the end.
