TangoClub


Free Tango Dance Classes

Not sure if you'll like tango, but keen to give it a go? Or perhaps you are hooked already, but some of your friends just need a little extra encouragement? In the spirit of making Argentine tango more accessible to all, TangoClub is offering free beginners tango lessons with various teachers in Auckland. No experience necessary, no payment required, no strings attached—so no excuses for not being there!

Upcoming free tango workshop

TangoClub has no free lessons planned at this stage. Keep checking back for further details, or ask to sign up to our mailing list.

If you would like to take tango to the next level, we encourage you to take regular classes from teachers in Auckland, and dance and practise as much as you can by attending the various practicas and milongas.



Free Tango Classes in 2010 and 2011

TangoClub only organised a few free classes in recent years as we focused on the stimulating the interest of those in the tango community rather than attracting newcomers.

Free Tango Classes in 2009

TangoClub organised twelve free introductory tango lessons in 2009 (roughly once a month). These were always full of students.
