Tango beginner or seasoned lover of Latin dancing? This is the weekend to get your toes tripping across the ballroom floor. Tango is one of the world’s best-loved dance forms and the Argentine Tango is considered to be the authentic version. It’s about dancing with emotion and conveying the feeling of the music to your dance partner. Internationally renowned Leonardo and Tracey from 2Tango will host friendly classes in our beautiful Foxhill Manor Ballroom and guide you gracefully towards Sunday’s final evening of music and dance. Course finishes approx. 10.45pm. There is an option to stay Sunday night Bed & Breakfast.
NB: On our ballroom dancing courses, we can only accept bookings by pairs or couples. So why not ask a friend to join you?
Tutor Profile: Leo and Tracey
Leo was born in Buenos Aires to a family steeped in the arts and in particular, Argentine Tango. Originally taught by his father, he’s danced Tango for over 40 years. He still teaches the original Tango and techniques as taught to him by his father and other great milongueros of the time. For the last 10 years he has lived in the UK where he has continued to teach the authentic Argentine Tango. During these years, he has successfully run Argentine Tango Classes, Dances and Workshops in London and around the UK and is one of the most respected and authentic ‘Milongueros’ currently living in the country.
Tracey is British and has danced for a large part of her life. Her background is a combination of classical ballet, Ballroom and Latin. She has danced Argentine Tango for 12 years but has had extensive tuition with Leo over the last 4 years and now teaches and performs with him around the UK. For five years, she also ran and taught at the Tango Nirvana Club in Reading, which holds the longest established Tango Dance in the Thames Valley area.
Together, Leo and Tracey run ’2Tango’ and they now teach and perform around the UK. Their many performances include Negracha Tango Club in London, the prestigious Blackpool Tower Ballroom and they are just about to revive the Tango Suppers at the exclusive Waldorf London Hotel.
