What’s so special about Argentine Tango?
This little clip says a lot about why we love tango. Hope you find something to love too.
We run weekly progressive foundation and intermediate classes with local teachers for tango dancers.
Classes usually run on Thursday evenings in half termly blocks. We find that structured weekly classes offer the offer best support for steady progress with your tango learning.
You want to learn tango?
Our next Foundations class for complete beginners will start in September 2023. To register your interest, just contact us – and we’ll put your name on our list. We’ll contact you closer to that time to give you more details.
From time to time we offer highly entertaining talks about Tango music and its most famous musicians by our resident tango music guru, author, DJ and tango teacher Michael Lavocah.
We also have a Tango Norfolk group on Facebook where all our events, as well as other local and East Anglian tango events are advertised.
We regularly organise some workshops for intermediates with recommended international visiting teachers like Elizabeth Knock and Luis Rodriguez to focus on aspects of dancing tango.

Tango Etiquette and Terminology
If you’re relatively new to tango, make sure you know about the etiquette when going to a Milonga. And what is actually a Milonga? How does a leader ask for a dance? What does tanda or cortina mean? What about smalltalk on the dance floor? Find a little catalogue of Milonga rules and tango terms here.
