Introduction to Tango Course – starts this Tuesday (24th September 2019)! $60pp for 6 weeks @ 6pm

Thought about learning Tango? Now is the perfect time!!

We are delighted to announce that our next “Introduction to Tango” 6 classes in 6 weeks program begins on Tuesday 24th September – 6.00-7.00pm, upstairs at Boodle Beasley (315 Elizabeth Street, North Hobart).

The ‘6 classes over 6 weeks for $60pp’ program is designed for complete beginners and will take you on your first steps into a new, exciting and exhilarating experience.

Sensual and passionate, Tango is as individual as you. Its minimalist, basic steps can provide you with a dance of classic simplicity or intricate beauty. It all depends how far you want to take it!

In the 6 Group Classes over 6 weeks, you will learn the essentials of Tango: how to connect with your partner, musicality, the tango walk, basic steps, floor-craft and etiquette. You will develop a sensitivity to lead/follow as you begin to mix with others enrolled in the same program.

The course aims to sufficiently develop your tango dancing skills so that you can dance socially by the end of six weeks. And to ensure the highest quality experience, this course will be limited to 20 participants, so to make sure you aren’t disappointed – visit Eventbrite to purchase tickets here:

Should you be unable to commit to the next 6 weeks – single beginners lessons (at the same time & place as the course above) are available here:

Mark Stojani Weekend 7 September

TasTango is delighted to have Mark Stojani come to join us for a weekend of Argentine Tango dance in Hobart this September.

He will be leading our monthly Friday Gala Milonga on September 7th with a lesson from 7 – 8.30pm followed by our milonga from 8.30 till late…

Go to Eventbrite for details and tickets.

Mark is the current President of Siempre Tango (Adelaide). He began dancing Tango in 2000 and after 3 years he began taking lessons at Siempre Tango under the tutelage of the school’s founder, Carlo Sansour. 

Carlo’s style, musicality and smooth panther-like movement impressed Mark greatly and became a major inspiration to his dancing. Mark has also undertaken classes and private lessons with many teachers both in Australia and on his trips to Argentina. He continues to be inspired by these teacher/dancers and also his dance partners and the music.

While he finds it difficult to narrow down his favorite music to dance to, he gets itchy feet when he hears Canaro, Di Sarli, D’Arienzo, Biagi, D’Agostino and D’Angelis and some later orchestras.

Mark commenced teaching late 2004 under the watchful eye of Carlo Sansour and continues to enjoy not only teaching the students of Siempre Tango, but also learning from them. He likes to encourage creativity, musicality, circularity, naturalness with good posture and balance all with a beautiful embrace.
