Learning to dance REAL Argentine Tango is easier and a lot more fun than you might think!

Mandy and Basil, the Island Dance Wizards, are the ONLY full-time Professional Dance Teachers teaching Argentine Tango on the Island. They also specialise in teaching Tango to those coming from other dance styles and show dancers how to adapt the dance to modern music to get you up and dancing Argentine Tango in the REAL World at pubs, clubs, dance freestyles and other social events as WELL as at Traditional Milongas...

Our WEDNESDAY classes take place at the Island's premier Dance Venue - a gorgeous character building in SHANKLIN. The lessons build on the highest level of traditional technique for successful social dancing and feature playful footwork including barridas, ganchos, sacadas etc. We always concentrate on teaching how to really connect and improvise/react to music as a couple rather than just on showing 'steps' or 'moves'... So come and learn this Intense and Stylish dance with our Friendly, Fun Lessons!!

Experienced Tangueros/Tangueras, Island Visitors and Total Beginners can ALL just drop in on the weeks that suit them - there's no previous dance experience required, you pay just £8.00 per evening (no registration or course fees required) and you don't even need to bring a partner!

Tango - don't just Learn it - DANCE it!!
