Tangueando Argentine Tango School in Cambridge runs regular courses throughout the year for absolute beginners, beginners and improvers. New courses start with every academic term and are normally 11 or 12 weeks long. To book a place on our courses, complete and submit the registration form on this page.
We are running courses every term and although each course is self-contained, the consecutive courses are also progressive for students that have taken a course in the previous term(s). Some of our students have been studying with us for years. Others have taken courses in the past and re-join after a break.
Our aim is to follow our students throughout their learning curve, the same way our teachers followed (and are still following) us, helping and guiding each individual to progress on their own pace.

Tango can be a lot of fun, as it mixes recreation with social functions and play with self-discovery.
Although learning tango can be a long process, people can start dancing fairly quickly and the whole process is well worth the effort. There are many factors that influence the learning curve in tango (and every physical activity):
The only thing we ask for is commitment to learn. All the rest comes with time.
Due to high demand on our courses, numbers of students for each course are limited and registrations are dealt with on a first-come, first-served basis.
The courses are designed to be followed from the beginning to the end, so that the courses progress smoothly.
Students unable to attend a session on a specific day can always catch-up by attending another session, on another day.
By registering for a course, you are showing your intent to commit and we will therefore reserve a place for you. Students dropping-in are always welcome.
Your registration will be complete when we receive full payment for the current term.
|Drop-in fee||£12 per class|
|Equivalent per class||£10||£9||£8|
|Discounts||+ at least 10% off workshops|
|When you take more than one course(s):|
|Course||2nd||3nd or 4th||5th|
|Equivalent per class||£9||£8||£0|
|If you live far and need to travel to attend our courses‡:|
|25+ miles (Regular rate)|
|Fees||£99||+ at least 10% off workshops|
|Equivalent per class||£9|
All our classes can be attended on a drop-in basis at the drop-in rate above, which applies to everyone and is the base fee per class (either 1¼ or 1½ hours each).
As a dance school we strongly encourage all our students to book a full term (paid up-front) and we provide many different types of discounts, accommodating for students, unemployed and those over 60's as well as for people who live far away and need to travel. When someone books a course, we give at least 10% discount for workshops and seminars with visiting teachers and we also give the opportunity to attend another class within the term if one misses a class for whatever reason.
On top of all these benefits, all our enrolled students get a £1 discount on our regular practica and can also benefit from a £5 discount on private classes.
* Students = Students in full-time education (not working) - We expect to see proof of enrollment
† Concessions = Unemployed & over 60's
‡ 25+ miles = We expect to see proof of address in form of a utility bill
PLEASE NOTE: The "Milonga Elements" course is not subject to the above discounts table when taken as a single course, and does not entitle attendants to any of the extra benefits. However, if taken as 2nd course we will apply the student rate.
Registration is mandatory. All payments must be made in advance or at the first lesson of the term. We accept payments by cash, cheque and bank transfer (bank details will be emailed after booking).
Full-term† Tangueando students are entitled to various benefits:
† Students fully enrolled at the current term on one of the Tango or Technique courses (i.e. not on a drop-in basis - excludes the ad-hoc milonga elements course which is run as a series of workshops).
All students can make up for a missed class by attending another class, at another day and time and within the same term (except for the Milonga Elements classes which are a separate course altogether). When possible, students are kindly requested to let us know beforehand.
Students can still join a term AFTER it has started. These cases will be dealt with at an ad-hoc basis, depending on which point in the term this occurs.
Course fees are non-transferable and non-refundable.
Please note: Course benefits (e.g. discount rates) are non-cumulative.
