Have you ever dreamed of dancing that most beautiful and elegant of partner dances… the Argentine tango? Have you heard that incredibly captivating music and thought: “I’d LOVE to be able to move well to that haunting sound…”?
If you think you fit the profile or know of someone who is interested we’d love to meet you! Or….if you started learning Argentine Tango in the past but had a break from lessons, now is the perfect time to start again.
At Siempre Tango we have experienced teachers to guide you through basic tango technique in classes especially designed for beginners. Our new four week block begins Sunday May 19th 4-5pm at the Eastwood Community Centre, 95 Glen Osmond Road, Eastwood. It’s $50.00 for four classes or you can pay casually if you prefer at $15.00 per class.

Have you been interested in learning the Argentine Tango? Why not try it now? The next 4-week beginners introduction course starts on Sunday 8th September 2013, at 3pm.
This course is designed for students with no previous dance experience and it aims to introduce students to the basics of authentic Argentine social tango. Couples and singles welcome!
Classes are $50 per person for this four-week introduction, but if you enrol as a new beginner you also have the opportunity to bring your partner for free (ie a two for one price of only $50 per couple).
