  • La Tangueria: 200€ pp for a weekly class and a técnica session.
  • La Luna: 160€ pp, full semester of 14 x 75 minutes.

  • La Tangueria absolute beginners (level 1): 90€ pp (8 x 70 minutes) or 50€ pp (4 x 70 minutes). For absolute beginners who discover tango, we first propose a short cycle of initiation classes before expecting an engagement for a longer series.
  • Students and < 25 years: -20%

If there is availability, it is possible in the other levels also to take a shorter series and pay less (-10€ per class). More information about payments, discounts, etc. can be found in our conditions and practical information.

Tecnica

In the técnica sessions, the teachers give 20 minutes of technique between the two evening classes. We work on posture, balance and axis, refinement, footwork, dissociation/association, rhythmic and speed exercises, but also on connection, leading and following…

These sessions can be followed individually (without partner) by the participants of the first and second lesson of the evening (and others). It is highly recommended to take part in these sessions, because we regularly work on principles and movements that are also discussed in the weekly courses. Moreover, working on body awareness and tango techniques is not a luxury, both for beginners and for the already experienced dancers.

  • A subscription to the técnica sessions entitles you to participate several times a week
  • Técnica sessions can be followed separately (€ 4 per session)
  • Técnica sessions are not open to spectators, only those who pay have access to the room
  • Since no partner is required, the técnica sessions are not open to substitutes: but those who replace for a weekly class can pay for a técnica session.

practicaPractica

To improve the learning process, it is recommended to review the content of the classes in order to assimilate, digest and integrate it into your repertory. On Monday as of 20:45 and Thursday as of 19:00, while there are classes downstairs, the free practica welcomes its students who want to exercice in the room upstairs of La Tangueria.

Practical information

  • Classes in La Tangueria are taught in English and/or French. Registrations have to be made via our online form and payments can be done upfront by bank transfer or the first day in cash. We don’t accept checques, credit or bank cards.
  • The first semester runs from September till January. Registrations start on 10 August.

  • At first it is possible to register for one level only. In the groups where there are places left, students can register as of 10 days before start of the term for extra weekly classes.
  • It takes 2 to tango, so you need to register with a partner. We can help you find one via the partner form.
  • Besides our own tango classes, La Tangueria also hosts weekly classes Lindy hop and modern dance.
