We run weekly classes for all levels of Tango.
We have beginners and improvers lessons every week - We teach the beginners lessons to a standard that prepares members for the improvers lesson, so even if you have only just started you will be a pro in no time with 2 lessons a week
We also run weekly practicas so you can practise your moves in a friendly and supportive environment!
The first lesson is free!
Everyone is welcome - whether you're the next Tango Maestro or you think you have two left feet (we're sure you don't!)
We have a 50/50 split of undergraduates & postgraduates so you're sure to fit right in whoever you are!!
Tango is a social dance and we are proud to run loads of opportunities to dance but also to meet up and socialise. Here are some of the things we get up to:
- We run our own milongas twice a term on campus where we invite members from neighbouring societies and universities, supply drinks and refreshments, and everyone has a great time! These milongas are a great way to see what Tango is all about but in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere
- As well as hosting our milongas, we visit others across the UK too, including but not exclusive to UK Tango Festival, Che London, Porto, Corfu, Oxford, Warwick, Manchester - the list is never-ending
- We organise non-dancing socials including circling, pub quizzes, chilled bar evening, cinemas visits, meals out etc
- We have hosted milongas with over 80 dancers and are looking forward to hosting more, such as the 'Warwick Tango Festival 2020' and our UV themed Haloween milonga with fresh Argentine Food available!
Performances, Projects, and other Events
We participate in several performances throughout the academic year - including Pizazz, the Pro Bono Talent Show, Warwick Blackout, and more to come!
We have also organised and participated in professional photoshoots, both on and off campus, where our members posed as models for tango photos.
Collaborations with other dance societies on various events and activities are also common - we've held POP! events with Warwick Salsa and a charity event with Warwick Latin and Ballroom!
During Term 3 of the 2018/19 academic year, we organised our very first Tango De-Stress session, a free taster session to members and non-members with the aim of relieving exam stress through tango.

Joining a new society can be intimidating, we get it! Here are some of the common concerns we've encountered, but if the following list doesn't answer your question you can always pop us a message (we don't bite, we promise!)
“I’ve never danced before!”
That's alright! Most of our members join with zero prior dance experience. Our teachers have years and years of experience and know exactly how to structure a lesson for even the freshest beginners. Give it a go and you may just surprise yourself!
“Do I need a partner to join?”
No, you don't! Just come along and dance with our other members - we're a friendly bunch and you're sure to make new friends along the way. Of course, if you have a best friend, significant other, sibling, etc. who would love to come with you, we won't say no!
“What do I wear?”
Whatever you're comfortable in, really! Bring your dance shoes if you happen to have any, but if not, cotton socks do just fine.
“Do I have to attend all the lessons?”
No! You can be a member of the society and come to lessons whenever it suits you. Of course, we do encourage you to attend as actively as possible, as we slowly but steadily build up our technique and abilities with every lesson. Don't worry if you have to miss a lesson though - our teachers, exec and other members are more than happy to catch you up to speed at the next lesson or practica.
Hope to see you all soon and don't forget to join the society!
