TLC has taught Argentine Tango in Southampton since 1999 and thousands of people have enjoyed the intensity and magic of this dance since then.


If you want to learn this beautiful dance with TLC, please see below for our classes which run throughout the year except at Christmas.
We have a very friendly group where we encourage everyone to dance together. This way, you do not need to book with partners.


As an Absolute Beginner, you can try the Taster class at the start of our 2-monthly beginners courses either on Tuesdays or Weds, then if you like it (and we are sure you will), you can continue the course.

While Beginners have their course on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, there are other classes which run concurrently with other teachers for those who already dance the Argentine Tango. For the higher class (Level 3) Tracie invites wonderful guest teachers wh
o teach the Level 3 class with her on Tuesdays.

Take the chance, it might just change your life!

'


It's a step when you walk with your arms together…
It's a hobby when you start walking with people you do and don't know…
It's a dance when you start walking with the music….
It's an art when you get the meaning of it…
It's a way of life once you understand it…
It's a tango.

--Joel Smith, Age 14, July 2002, Polly's Grandson, after dancing tango about six months.
