Tango Group Classes
Learn social tango at any level, from beginner to advanced, and feel part of the beautiful community
Join our lively classes and dance Argentine tango! You will learn something new in each class, surrounded by like-minded people and in a very warm, friendly atmosphere. You will be encouraged to try, to experiment, to explore your creativity, to make mistakes and have fun doing all that! You will learn to move in a couple to the beautiful tango music, in complete improvisation. And then you will be able to dance socially in our practicas and milongas!
We have 3 different regular group classes for tango, and you can find out more about each below.
Passionate tanguera in her heart, Olga has been dancing and teaching tango for many years. Her focus is on bringing the beauty of social tango into your life. She started dancing tango at university in 2007, and spent decades of her life as an obsessed social dancer, travelling all around the world to dance tango and study it. In 2016 she started teaching, and finally in 2022 she opened the first and only dedicated tango studio in London! Now her classes are sought after among dancers of all levels, in particular intermediate and advanced dancers, for the highest quality of tuition and personal approach to each student. Olga brings her expertise in body mechanics, thanks to her also being a skilled pilates instructor, as well as incredible precision in details. She is the solid rock of knowledge and skills in any movement, for roles of both leader and follower. Her aim is to create connected, passionate and beautiful tango with the soul for each student!
She invites her most advanced students and guest teachers to teach tango classes with her.

Tango Technique Training
Regular weekly training sessions for all roles and levels. Consistency is the key!
Good things come to those who practice regularly!
Inspired and motivated by the kind of regular classes you can take in Buenos Aires if you are keen on improving, and knowing that consistent practice is what makes the difference between good and amazing, I am super excited to be able to offer this class!
Individual technique training class both for leaders and followers, with focus on raising awareness of our bodies, gradual increase in individual abilities, and application in tango;
Inclusion of various techniques (e.g. Pilates, Release, Franklin Method etc), to understand the principles and reach our goals;
Expect in-depth work on topics like:
balance, footwork, posture, types of disassociation, grabbing, holding and embracing, types of pivot, study of axis, deep exploration of the weight centre, dance from the floor / from the centre, expressiveness and much more;
detailed analysis and training of individual technique for walk, change of weight, ochos, giros, sacadas, boleos, decorations, enrosoque, crosses and more;
First learn the rules, become the king of the rules, and then break them!
