Tuesdays! Our current series of classes began on Tuesday 12th April! Beginners are at 19:30, improvers and intermediates at 21:00 with practice time from 20:30 to 21:00. Beginners may start in any week and we will catch you up. No partner is required and you will not need to do fancy lifts!

The Next Tango Café! From 16:00 to 20:00 on Sunday 8th May 2016, we have our next tango café. There will be tea, coffee soft drinks and homemade cakes plus music from DJ Rob. Please note that this is not at our usual venue. It is at The Tithe Barn in Bishops Cleeve, GL52 8LU.

Fridays! Our next Friday sessions is on Friday 22nd April at The Bayshill from 20:00 to 23:00. There is an all levels class from 20.00 to 21.00 with Adrian and Jolanta and a guided practica from 21.00 to 23.00. Plus coffee, biscuits or cakes etc.

Our current Tuesday times!!! We run from 19.30 to 22.00 every Tuesday, with the class times as shown below. The cost will is £6 for one class or £8 for two, with the práctica being free.

  • 19.30 - 20.30 Beginners
  • 20.30 - 21.00 Práctica
  • 21.00 - 22.00 Improvers and Intermediates

After the práctica, a section at the top of the hall will be made available for practice. Beginners are welcome to stay and continue practicing and intermediates are welcome to arrive and practice at any time from 20.15 onwards, even during the improver class. Similarly, improvers are welcome to stay and practice during the intermediate class. We will try and make the intermediate class a seamless continuation of the improver class for those who are able to and wish to do both. Intermediates may therefore find it useful to turn up at around 20.30 even if they do not wish to do the improver class first. If you are not sure which class to join, please come along and ask.

Beginners who miss the first few weeks may start at any time and should read the Classes Page and the Beginners' Page. Everyone else should read about the class structure on the Classes Page. We look forward to seeing you all there.

Classes run every week roughly in line with school terms except we usually keep going over their half term break. We would love for you to join us there. To be absolutely certain, check our calendar.
