July 8th, A Day of Tango in Ashprington Village Hall, TQ9 7XA

Frank and I have been away for a while, so we would like to run a day of Tango to reconnect with old Tango friends and meet those who have joined the dance community since we've been away. We will start at 4pm with a workshop for Absolute and Recent Beginners, followed by a shared meal and a Milonga in the evening. It is nearly my birthday then, so I'd like to invite you ALL to come and celebrate it at a FREE Milonga!

    4-6pm, Workshop for Absolute and Recent Beginners, £10 (advanced booking advisable - contact Ruth )
          The Core Elements of Tango
    6.30-8pm Shared Meal - bring Food to share!

Private lessons, by appointment

For some people, learning in a group is not the best option. Maybe you want to maximise the time you spend learning, or you are shy, or you want to go over something in detail, or you want to give a special gift to a friend.
Having danced both roles for more than 15 years, Ruth is equally happy to lead (to dance the role of 'the man') or to follow (to dance the role of 'the woman') in her private lessons. Knowing both roles equally well gives her a complete picture of the dance, and she can bring this understanding to your learning process.
  * A private lesson gives you input in a concentrated form. One hour of private tuition is usually the equivalent of three hours of group classes.
  * You can arrange lessons at times and intervals that suit you.
Feel free to contact us to arrange a one-off, or a series of private lessons.

Cost: £8 per class, or £20 for all three
