May News from Tango y Nada Mas

Firstly, we thought you might like to know that Air conditioning has arrived at The Water Poet! Phew!

We have lots planned for the next few months and have made some changes to our class structure and timings, as well as having planned a few special events, details below:

Still to take your first steps?

If you have been thinking about trying Argentine Tango for a while, but not quite made it, now is the perfect time to join a class at The Water Poet on Monday evenings.


5 weekly Beginners Courses

We started a new Beginners Course last week and its not too late to join. These run from 6:30-7:30pm every Monday. We cover the basics to get you started and no previous experience is necessary. It is a warm and friendly environment and we repeat the course every 5 weeks. We are running a promotion at the moment to have the first class out of the 5 FREE. Additionally, if you sign up for the 5 weeks you receive a 20% discount on the normal prices for drop in classes.


If you already have some experience, then why not try our Improvers class at 7:30-8:30pm where we still concentrate on the fundamentals of the embrace, connection and music but also introduce more complex figures to help you start dancing with confidence. The Improvers is suitable for everyone who has already has some experience. We also offer the 20% discount to all those who sign up for 5 weeks at a time in order to build a group of committed dancers and improve the experience for all.


From 8:30-9:30 we run our Intermediate class for those who have been dancing for a lot longer.  Here we concentrate on much more complex figures to keep your dance fresh and interesting. Again the 20% discount is available to all who sign up for blocks of 5 classes.

Normal drop in price for classes is £12.

TASTER DAY – Saturday 20th May

On Saturday 20th May we will be running a special intensive ‘Taster session’ to introduce all the fundamentals of this beautiful dance in an afternoon between 2-5pm at The Water Poet. The price for this is £30 and booking in advance is essential so we ensure equal numbers of leaders and followers.
