Learn to dance Argentine Tango
with Anthony Howell - professionally trained dancer (Royal Ballet) and creator of Tango Schumann and Tango for Balance
Tango is a wonderful dance that is at the same time simple in its basic structure and complex when danced with a mastery of its technique. The lovely music features the bandoneon and a small "orquesta" - or orchestra. It is a partner dance which can be improvised using the skill of "lead and follow" which is actually a fusion of movement created by the partnership. All over London and around London there are gatherings to dance tango socially called "milongas" - so it's a great way of meeting new friends. It is best to come with shoes which allow you to pivot, on the ball of your foot.
Special Christmas week call-out.
The Room is hosting a marathon tango practica, from Christmas Eve until Friday 27 December 2019 - Call 0208 801 8577 to book entry time (essential!). You can stay as long as you like but be prepared to share - the format is a practica! Thirty-three feet of sprung dance floor! I'll let you in, show you how to use the sound system, and will stay and dance if you'd like a partner. Average volume tangos are not heard by the neighbours.
