Glasgow Tango Classes

Tango is rooted in the cultural melting pot of early 20th Century Argentina. It is an exciting, improvised social dance with limitless possibilities. There is a wealth of music from the early years of tango to contemporary electro-tango (Gotan Project, Bajofondo Tango Club) via Astor Piazzolla, and a range of dancing styles to match.

Alistair and Shona have been keen figures on Glasgow's tango scene for many years. Since 2003, they have studied tango with Jenny Frances and Ricardo Oria. Shona makes use of her extensive personal study of tango techniques and issues of style to provide clear and detailed explanations in the class. Alistair draws on his musical and teaching backgrounds making the all important connections between the music and the dance. They both passionately believe in tango as an enjoyable social dance for all.

Alistair and Shona are mentored by the wonderful Jenny Frances and Ricardo Oria. These stars of tango regularly perform and teach across the UK and around the world.
