Beginners Class with Carlos & Kelly @ Pasion Por Tango
Jan 29 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

 

After their popular classes in May/June 2018, they have decided to ‘seriously’ teach together again!

Carlos, a charismatic and fun tango teacher/dancer from Uruguay; Kelly, a strict tango teacher/dancer with a dry sense of humour. This combination means the class could only go one way or the other (a DISASTER or a LAUGH!!). 

Whether it’s a disaster or a laugh, you will still be learning the Argentine Tango as you’d see, dance and feel in Buenos Aires milongas.

 

# About their Classes #

We teach the authentic Argentine Tango as you would see and dance in Buenos Aries milongas. Our classes are fun and informal with the focus on technique, musicality and developing partnership; to cover the basics and give you the confidence to dance socially with anyone at a Milonga.

Beginners Class with Sheldon & Kelly @ Pasion Por Tango
Feb 3 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

 

About Us

We are Sheldon & Kelly! We have been teaching together for over two years since founding the Argentine Tango Student Association at the Auckland University of Technology, a platform that allows students to learn, practice and share the beauty of Argentine Tango!

Our passion is to introduce the younger and new generation to this captivating and beautiful dance and to grow the Argentine Tango Community in Auckland.

Other than teaching, we also organise social dance events (known as Milongas) such as the Art Gallery Outdoor Milonga, Milonga Otra Vez and Wynyard Quarter Waterfront Milonga. We are also DJs and perform at various events such as the Auckland Latin Fiesta.

 

About Our Classes

We teach the authentic Argentine Tango as you would see and dance in Buenos Aries milongas.

Our classes are fun and informal with focus on technique, musicality and developing partnership; to cover the basics and give you the confidence to dance socially with anyone at a Milonga.

 

Class Benefits

As Argentine Tango isn’t built around learning rigid steps or sequences, it’s both great fun and relaxing especially after a tough day of studying or working. It’s also a great form of exercise both physically and mentally. It’s also a fantastic way to meet people and make new friends.

 

Authentic Argentine Tango

Argentine Tango is a culture and necessity – particularly in the hearts of Buenos Aires and Montevideo. Tango became a symbol that reflected the music and folks’ way of living and emerged in the 19th Century. This style of dancing is social and unique in the genre of music.

The beauty of Argentine Tango is in its improvisation; there is no set sequence or steps to follow; and we dance with different partners all the time. No two tango dances are ever the same.

 

Do I need to Sign Up?

No sign up required.

 

What should I wear?

Clothing that is comfortable to move around in. For footwear, wear shoes that you can pivot easily and don’t stick to the wooden floor.
