Learning to dance Argentine Tango
If you are looking to take up Argentine Tango, there is never a better time and getting started.
Here is a practical information to help you with all you need to begin your tango journey with
You don’t need a partner to take most of our lesson and courses. You can come with a partner
or come on your own. Tango is a social dance, we rotate partners in all of our classes and you
will have the opportunity to dance with many of the other experienced students.This is good not
only for improving your technique, but also for preparing you to go out and dance tango socially.
The average age is 20-50, but we have had students from 19-75! Most of our students come from
a wide range of backgrounds, and the broad mix of ages, nationalities, professions and dance skills,
makes for a very interesting learning experience.
Whether you're just setting out on the dance floor for the first time, or you have years of experience,
we have the right course to get you started. Bournemouthtango offers five levels of tuition in three class
categories. More details
How do I know what level class to take?
If you are a beginning student with limited or no tango dance experience, we recommend
starting with the Fundamentals Level I. If you have been dancing for less than a year and
have some basic experience, start with the Fundamentals Level II.
If you have some experience or been away from dancing, consider taking a "refresher course",
that is slightly below your level to ease you into our class culture.. More details

Shoes, Accessories & Attire
We recommend comfortable shoes & clothes.
Suede and Smooth material soles are highly recommended. Follower/Women should
start with shoes with small heel, between 1 and 3 inches is best. Flat or low heels
recommended for Leader/Men.
Clothing for Classes/Practicas
Dress comfortably and sensibly. We recommend comfortable clothing that gives you freedom
of movement and shoes with smooth material or leather soles. Avoid wearing jewellery, such as
earrings, rings and necklaces, which can get caught in clothing.
Avoid full skirts, we recommend mid-calf length skirts or shorter (so heels don’t catch).
Clothing for Milonga (Tango Social Party)
Tango is elegant. People usually dress in cocktail or evening attire. Vintage suits and
dresses are popular. Dress up a little, or a lot! You can never go wrong with black! If
you wear accessories or jewelry, be aware of your partner’s space and safety.
If you need further information, you can contact us by telephone, text
or email and I would be happy to provide the relevant information.
