Ever been to a tango show?
Dancers moving like cats and all that leg flicking set in a bundle of tension you can cut with a knife. Kind of makes you want to have a go.
What about a tango club?
They still move like cats in the milonga but it's less of a show, because dancing for an audience is what they do on stage, tango for export. Walking in an embrace to the music, having a connected conversation but not actually speaking. Think less spangle and acrobatics, more intelligent dancing. Kind of makes you want to learn and learn properly.
Made to make
a taste of tango, a tango course for smooth, confident and connected dancing. Only at Pineapple Dance Studios
Everything you need to start dancing tango.
Tango is a practice, a craft to hone and nurture, but the basics are simple. Here you get to experience them in a cycle of four weeks to develop your dancing. You don't have to worry about things going 'wrong' instead you can connect moves, music and ideas to improvise and play. It's easy to find flow. Feel more balanced and grounded from the get go with exercises that give you a solid base for your dancing and expert guidance to take the pressure off.
Time and money very well spent.
The workshop gives you a real understanding of
the principles underlying tango, as well as teaching
a few moves. You can see how easy tango
could become a passion.
Jenney is a brilliant teacher.
I saw Jenney teaching -and dancing- after Tanguera at Sadler’s Wells. She made me want to learn to dance. Her teaching is not just about tango, it’s about a deeper understanding of movement, space, one’s body… it’s about expression and dialogue. An embrace…
As a sportsman I’d never participated in anything dance related before, Jenney removed any apprehension or anxiety I’d had when starting tango. Her tailored classes helped me gain confidence to participate in a class or two when visiting Buenos Aires and I then continued learning with Jenney on return. I felt comfortable from my first lesson, learning to dance rather follow steps or routines, which is what I’d wanted.
It felt really good being exposed to something completely new that required a more “unconventional” approach, such as “tuning in” and not just focusing on a specific routine or steps. Last but not least, Jenney is an amazing teacher, really explanatory and passionate about Tango
Jenney is an extraordinary teacher. She manages to create exactly the right balance between a warm, friendly and unintimidating atmosphere – with the appropriate challenge and pace of learning. This is a wonderful introduction to Tango – not just the dance, but also the social context, music, spirit and attitude of the real Tango of Buenos Aires.
Jenney’s fantastic. The atmosphere was wonderful, with everyone learning together. The music of course is heaven. I’m hooked.
