Friendly Argentine tango classes in central Cambridge with Savio and Katriona

New 6 week course for absolute beginners starts Wednesday 5th June 2024

Our 6 week tango course for absolute beginners takes you from your first steps to leading or following classic Argentine tango sequences such as the forward ocho, the cross step and the ocho cortado.

We assume no dance knowledge whatsoever. You will be in great company with other beginners. And while we take our dancing seriously, we make our classes fun.

Course dates

Wednesday 5th June - 10th July, 7.30-8.30pm


St Paul's Centre, Hills Road, Cambridge, UK


£65 per person (£55 for full time students)

Joining Savio and Katriona's tango class was the best decision I made in 2022! Because of tango, Wednesday is my favourite night of the week."
