You have to begin by loving tango, to let it go into your veins, until it arrives to your heart. And then seek a good teacher”
– Maria Nieves

Old school, the new way
Tango was initially ‘learnt’ at academies, rather than what we think of as dance schools, these were meetings groups of men who would dance for hours, inventing, practicing and sharing. Women were usually taught to dance at home by a relative or trusted family friend. Taking elements from this way of sharing tango culture and updating others for modern day life, the tango course was born.
“learning & focus” + “practice & play”
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.”-John
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…”-Annamaria
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.”-Martin
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”-Christine
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.”-Darren
Jenney’s fantastic. The atmosphere was wonderful, with everyone learning together. The music of course is heaven. I’m hooked.”-Flora
