Beginners Courses

These Beginners Tango Foundation courses [TF1 and TF2] are especially structured to provide a background to the foundation principles to dance tango, incorporating the Tango Lessons Syllabus.

TF1 and TF2 are taught throughout the year, the start dates coincide with the Tango Festival programme in Wellington:

You will be taught the foundation elements of posture, balance, your vertical and horizontal axis, and how to lead/follow in the dance.
