About this event

Welcome to Ani’s Dance Base, Authentic Argentine Tango Class, which is ideal for beginners, those wanting to revisit the basics, work on their technique and role swop. So for a Beginner, you’ll get all the fundamental moves you need to step out and dance the night away. Or an Upward/Improver class for those who’ve done a bit of Tango, who’ll have the opportunity to go deeper into their practice and find exciting ways to use the gorgeous simple moves to create magical dances. You are supported and encouraged to role swap if you choose to. Work close or open embrace and discover how to move between them and dance a beautiful dance whatever your level or chosen personal style. All taught by a professional dancer of almost 40 years experience teaching at a warm and inviting, purpose built for dance building, under the shadow of the Castle. Come along and give it a go!

It is worth a mention that this class is extremely friendly and has developed a weekly post class ritual of drinks after. So yes there is a class and nice glass of Merlo or tipple of your choice option for those who’d like to get to know their fellow class mates in keeping with the social energy at the core of Tango.

For those unfamiliar Dance Base is Scotlands National Dance Agency located in Edinburgh. The building is spectacular and very welcoming. The ethos is all inclusive. To book contact Dance Base 0131 225 5525 or drop in and surprise us!
