Tango trial classes

La Tangueria regularly proposes free trial lessons to see if tango is for you. A trial lesson is also an opportunity for singles to get to know a partner before signing up for a series of initiation lessons together. Of course, 2 ladies or 2 gentlemen can also participate together. A trial can also be used as a catch-up class for those who missed the start of a series.

Next free trial lessons Happiness (2)

A free trial can take place as of 3 registered couples (or 6 singles). Therefore, reservation is required. Trials with less than 6 participants are postponed.

Price: the trial sessions organised by La Tangueria are free, but reservation is compulsory via mail, Whatsapp (+32479228698) or the registration form, because the number of places is limited, or if there are not many registrations, the trial  could be postponed.

Come as you are (no special clothes or shoes rerquired), as a couple (preferably) or alone. The trial can also be done with a person of the same gender, but if you prefer to be put in contact with a lady or a gentleman before, you can fill out a partner form and we will try to find a suitable partner for you.
