Tango in Glasgow

Tango

Tango is rooted in the cultural melting pot of early 20th Century Argentina. It is an exciting, improvised social dance with limitless possibilities. There is a wealth of music from the early years of tango to contemporary electro-tango (Gotan Project, Bajofondo Tango Club) via Astor Piazzolla, and a range of dancing styles to match. Glasgow Tango classes concentrate on Salon style tango. Elegant and versatile, it is danced everywhere from downtown Buenos Aires to Tokyo.

Tango in Glasgow

Glasgow has a friendly social tango scene. There are weekly and monthly opportunities for social dance as well as grander tango balls. Glasgow Tango has a regular Valentine's ball often with live music and performances by professional dancers. Whatever the social event, Beginners are welcomed and we actively encourage our students to go out and put their new found skills into action on the city's tango floors. Slightly further afield, Edinburgh hosts tango festivals with huge stars coming over to teach and perform.
