Tango Beginner Weekend 24-25 August 2024

Intensive weekend for beginners

Learn the basics of the Argentine tango in two days: in 4 workshops, 7 hours of teaching in total, you’ll learn about the walking technique, dance posture, the embrace with your dance partner, and how to lead steps or how to follow the lead. We will also teach you some of the most danced steps in the Argentine tango, such as ochos, cunitas and the cross step. Furthermore, you’ll get a taste of the tango vals and the milonga, two dances that are also part of the Argentine tango.

The venue of the weekend is dance centre de Veste in Apeldoorn, which has a very nice dance hall and a bar where we have our lunches and tea/coffee breaks. The surroundings of Apeldoorn are very beautiful, with heath and forest. Perfect for a nice weekend together or a longer stay.

After the weekend we will send all participants an overview of what you’ve learned, and some tango music to enable you to listen and practise at home.

You can get a better impression of the weekends by having a look at some pictures of previous weekends: photo gallery.
