Tango Lessons Wellington provides an enjoyable learning experience in Tango Salon, encompassing Milonguero Style - Close Embrace, v-embrace and open embrace - Tango salon.

Our teachers are focused on an enjoyable experience in learning tango and applying that knowledge to the dance floor in social dancing - the Milonga.

Our Tango Teachers regularly dance socially and take workshops with International Tango Teachers.

Our Advanced tango courses are collaborations with the International Teachers and are workshops and/or private lesson based.

Our teaching programmes in tango are coupled with a strong teaching background, we have established a Tango Syllabus for Beginners - TF1 and TF2. 

The successful course has been further developed into:

Tango Improvers Syllabus - T1 and T2

Tango Intermediate Syllabus - T3

Specifically a Social Dance course has been developed overlapping aspects of T1, T2 and T3 for the:

"In the Line of Dance Tango Syllabus - L1" introduced in 2014 as a Saturday lesson before the Tango Tea Dances.

Lessons are structured around a core syllabus for absolute beginners, refreshers courses and improvers/intermediate level, with some advanced sequences.
