Come and try tango.
Start and develop your tango dancing with a taste of tango workshop. You’ll be challenged to think and move using tango ideas and with an engaging mix of group, partner and individual activity, your tango skills will grow through exploration and creative thinking.
“learning & focus” + “practice & play”
This 2 hour session kicks off with rounds of “learning & focus” followed by “practice & play”. The aim here is to explore some simple yet important tango ideas so that you can begin to enjoy smooth and connected dancing straight away. Rather than learning sequences to copy, you will consider the four components that make a tango; embrace, connection, movement and the music.
Programme 1:00-2:20pm: a taste of tango 2:20-2:30pm: break* 2:30-3:00pm: mini milonga *bring refreshments for er… refreshing…
The final part of the session is a mini milonga where you can experience how the social side of dancing tango works. Equally important is learning how to invite and be invited, how floorcraft works, get an idea of what dancing works in the milonga.
You’ll leave the session challenged and curious for sure. More importantly, you’ll leave the session with the seeds of a connected dance that reflects you and your partner, as well as knowing how to connect and dance with anyone and how you can use these four elements to construct your dance.
We have never Tangoed before….. Jenney was patient and a great teacher. We learnt enough to make us hungry to learn more and come again 😊Kevin & Elizabeth
This was just wonderful! I must say as a non-dancer that Jenney was absolutely sensitive in her way to make me loose my considers and fears to get moving. It is a very good choice to get the idea of tango and feel comfortable with the first moves you make. Thank you for the inspirationOliver & Nina
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
Thanks again for the Tango lesson last weekend – Jess and I really enjoyed it and thought you were an excellent (and patient!) teacher. I liked how by the end of the class we had got to a point where we could do some basic steps, and the way you mixed technique but made it fun and enjoyable as well. We would be keen to do some more classes – please let us know about the course in January.

Jenney's fantastic. The atmosphere was wonderful, with everyone learning together. The music of course is heaven. I'm hooked.
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.
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
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.
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...
