Tango y Nada Mas brings more than 25 years of experience in Argentine Tango to London through classes, workshops and performances. Tango y Nada Mas shares the Tango culture of Buenos Aires with an emphasis on the music, the embrace, the walk and social dancing. Our aim is to inspire people with this beautiful improvised dance and to build a community of like-minded dancers here in London.
At Tango y Nada Mas classes focus on ‘Tango Salon’.
What is Tango Salon? It is the Tango that has always been danced in the salons of Buenos Aires. Tango originally grew as a social, improvised dance, a dance for everyone with Music as the uniting factor. For us, this is the beauty of Tango. Not the steps, or the choreography, but learning thorough basic technique through which your own Tango can flourish. No two dances will ever be the same, the beauty is in the moment. The moment you are connected with the Music and your partner and what happens through improvisation in these dances can create sublime moments, moments which keep you searching for the next.
Tango y Nada Mas remains close to the social dance, so teaching focuses on the embrace, the walk – which is the basis for everything else -, and the music without which we wouldn’t be dancing. We share our experience of dancing in the Milongas* so that those who learn with us, can also enjoy dancing in the Milongas. This is important as there many traditional ‘codigos’ (rules/etiquette) in a Milonga developed over time to ensure everyone can enjoy the experience.
We look forward to meeting you and sharing our Tango with you!
*Milonga - a social club for dancing Tango, also one of the three dances that we learn during Tango classes (Tango, vals and milonga)
