Classes

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

After each lesson, we have 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 (plot twist - you don't!).

We have a good split between undergraduates & postgraduates so you're sure to fit right in whoever you are!

 

 

Socials

With Argentine Tango being a social dance, we are proud to combine the dance with meeting up and socialising. Here are some of the things we get up to:

  • We organise non-dancing socials including movie & potluck nights, game nights, quiz nights and more!
  • 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
  • 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!
  • 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.

 

 

 

Performances, Collaborations, and Other Activities

We participate in several performances throughout the academic year - including Pizazz, the Pro Bono Talent Show, Warwick Blackout, and more!

We collaborate with other socieities to deliver exciting events and socials, such as our exchange workshops with Warwick Salsa and Latin & Ballroom.

We have organised and participated in professional photoshoots, both on and off campus, where our members posed as models for tango photos.

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.

FAQ

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!

 

“What do I wear?”

Whatever you're comfortable in, really! Put on your dance shoes if you happen to have any, but if not, cotton socks or sneakers 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.

 

Covid-19 update

All lessons and socials will run only after Health and Safety approval from Students Union, and according to government guidelines.

The structure of in-person lessons and level of countermeasures is expected to change over the year, together with unfolding severity of the pandemic.

Proved methods like masks, room capacity restricitons and regular testing are likely to remain in place, as we are working to provide a safe environment where we can dance all year long.

For exact details, we will always keep you updated in event descriptions!

 

 Hope to see you all soon and don't forget to join the society!
