Class information 

Our classes aim to teach you how to dance ... we don't teach steps.  We provide a variety of classes and workshops for all levels; from complete beginners to advanced. We also provide a monthly practica to give you the opportunity to practice/play in a social environment.  This helps prepare you for dancing at milongas (a social evening of dance).  For those who want to accelerate their progression, or can't attend weekly classes, we periodically run "Tango Beginners; a Short Intensive" course.

Not sure; a bit nervous; no problem.  Attend classes on a casual basis for 2 lessons to check it out.  No need to book for classes.

For those wanting more we offer private lessons so you can work on just you or for a special purpose such as a wedding dance.

Please look to the right at our timetable for days, times and venues of our classes.

Tango Beginners Woodend 

Our completely new class is commencing in Woodend in September.  This class is suitable for you if you are completely new to tango, returning to tango or wanting to brush on up your basic technique.  Check out our timetable to the right for details.  We intend to start an Intermediate class as soon as we receive sufficient interest.

Woodend classes are held most weeks of the year, excluding public holidays and a break for the Christmas/New Year period. There is no need to book or bring a partner.

Please wear comfortable clothing and suitable shoes and preferably turn up 10 minutes early for your first class.

Tango Beginners   

We run a class for those new to tango on Friday evenings at Clifton Hill.  This class is suitable for you if you are completely new to tango, returning to tango or wanting to brush on up your basic technique.  Check out our timetable to the right for details.

Clifton Hill classes are held most weeks of the year, excluding public holidays and a break for the Christmas/New Year period. There is no need to book or bring a partner.

Please wear comfortable clothing and suitable shoes and preferably turn up 10 minutes early for your first class.

Tango Beginners Intensive/Short Course 

We hold a mini-intensive course for beginners approximately 4 times a year.  This short course is suitable for you if you are completely new to tango or if you have a little experience and want to gain confidence.

The course is held for 2 hours over 2 weekends on Sundays.  To see when we are holding the next course please go to our timetable (to the right) for details. 

Tango Intermediate/Intermediate Plus 

We run classes for more experienced dancers on Thursday evenings at Gardenvale/Brighton and Friday evenings at Clifton Hill. These classes are suitable for you if you have tango experience and you are wanting to expand your understanding, musicality and repertoire.

Both classes are held most weeks of the year, excluding public holidays and a break for the Christmas/New Year period. There is no need to book or bring a partner.

Check out our timetable to the right for details.

Tango Workshops 

We run monthly workshops in conjuction with Bill Jarman of Tango Bajo.  Workshops are for you if you want to refine and deepen your understanding of the dance and the connection with you, your partner, the music and other dancers.

Workshops start with exercises that help create the body understanding for whatever the topic is. Then we progress through the theme of the workshop and adjust the content for your level, adding more and more complexity if you are very advanced.

Check out our events page for details of the next workshop.

Private Lessons 

You love dancing and just want more.  Have private lessons for you or you and your partner.  Contact us to organise a day and time.  We can provide lessons most days and evenings of the week.  

Wedding Dance  

Getting married. Tango is the dance of love, romance and passion  ...  it's perfect for that special day . We offer a range of packages and prices depending on how many lessons you want (or have time for) and if you want us to create a choreography just for you.  Contact us to organise your lessons.

What to Wear  

Whatever you like! But for classes we recommend you wear comfortable clothing. Any kind of leather soled shoes can be worn. Ladies should wear shoes with either a t-bar or strap. Men should wear shoes that have a low heel i.e. not a cuban heel dance shoe.

Once you've danced for a while you will want to purchase shoes specifically designed for tango.  Tango Tambien now offers beautifully crafted, elegant and comfortable argentine tango shoes under the name "InStepTangoShoes".
