Beginners Class

Our classes are fun and informal with focus on technique, musicality and partner works; to cover the basics and give you the confidence to dance socially with anyone at a Milonga (a social dance event)

 ~~~ Story of ATSA ~~~

Welcome to the Argentine Tango Student Association (ATSA)!

 I’m Fritz, currently a second-year student in Bachelor of Creative Technology. This ATSA club was founded by Sheldon, Kelly and me; the idea is to create an association/platform that allows students all over Auckland to learn, practice and share Tango!

Never thought I would ever dance in my life until half way through the last year in high school; when I accidentally walked into a Tango Practica (a session where people practice their tango). Two years later I thought Tango is one very interesting thing that happened to me so…I thought you might like it as well (?)

    Hello. I would like to take beginner tango classes scheduled for October. As I am not a student, i would like to know class information- what to prepare, how many classes will be and how to sign up. Thanks

    Hello, there is nothing you need to prepare before the class. If you have a pair of dance shoes, bring them along otherwise all you need to do is simply turn up at one of our classes or practicas in October with a pair of shocks! We’ll sign you up and get you join in with our other students right there and then. I’d also recommend you join our Facebook group “Argentine Tango Student Association” where we publish reminders on classes/practicas as well as some inspirational videos :>

    Hello, I’d like to join the beginner class for 25th Aug, if I need to book at somewhere and do the payment before the event? And I may don’t have time to buy the dance shoes, is that ok to wear leather shoes?
    Thank you very much.
