Catherine & Wim have been teaching the Authentic Argentinian Tango in Glasgow since 2004. They have had many years of training by influential, world-class teachers.
They make Tango accessible to people of all ages and abilities and get quick results. If you think you can't dance, Catherine & Wim would love to welcome you in their Beginners class. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed.
In the Beginners classes you will learn classic basic Tango steps such as the forward ocho, combinations, embellishments, floor craft, interpreting the music and easy improvisations. Once you master the basics and you move on to a more advanced level, you will learn complex Tango moves and be encouraged to develop your own style.
Dates & Times
We are not teaching our regular Tango classes in 2016-2017. However, you can hire us for workshops or classes by invitation. See our Tango Tipica main site for more information about Tango Tipica.
Steve & Dorne:
"Thank you for making the last few weeks so much fun! Also for all your dedication and for showing that maybe I don't have two left feet."
Tom & Emilie:"Their class is very enjoyable, while they are approachable and friendly. Very fast learning, with almost immediate 'results' too."
