EXPERIENCE ARGENTINE TANGO, London
(28th of September)

Experience Argentine Tango. A fascinating and magical social dance based on improvisation and communication with your dancing partner. There are no routines, it's not about learning a choreography and kicking in the air, but about using a 'language' to connect with another fellow human and express the beautiful tango music with movement. Yuri Bellicanta and Kate Miller of Meta Fierro Tango will guide you through the basics and share with you many aspects of this dance.

This session is for complete beginners. Don’t be shy, we also started from there :-) !

No age limitation, if you can walk you can tango!

No partner needed, so just come along!

2.30 - 4 pm

drop-in £15, in advance £10 – class and performance by Yuri and Kate.

Past Events
Workshops with Diego and Graciela - VALS & MILONGA , London
(10th of September)

We had the great pleasure to host workshops with Diego Converti and Graciela Gamba from Buenos Aires at Meta Fierro Tango. Known and loved by many in the UK, they inspired us with one hour of VALS and one hour of MILONGA. A PRACTICA of approximaately 40 mins took place at the end of the WORKSHOPS. It was a great opportunity to polish and improve our VALS and MILONGA in the same evening!

Workshop 1

VALS – different giros and sacadas.

Workshop 2

MILONGA – ochos and combination of giros with sacadass.

Vals Workshop Series, London

01/06/2019 - Workshop 1

Understand the Vals: rhythm and phrasing – how to keep it simple but 'vals' to it.

08/06/2019 - Workshop 2

Build up your Vals – if the vals pulse is flowing you are ready to enrich it with figures.. but not for the sake of it! You will learn movements that shape well to the Vals music.

22/06/2019 - Workshop 3

'Turn' the Vals on – possibilities in giros and some 'fancy' moves to fit with the music.

Milonga Workshop Series, London
(16th, 23th and 30th of March)

A series of workshops by Yuri Bellicanta and Kate Miller designed to improve your Milonga.

16/03/2019 - Workshop 1

Understand and ‘become’ the milonga – milonga is not tango, get the milonga pulse going in your body and learn how to combine basic patterns to make the most of it.

23/03/2019 - Workshop 2

Expand your possibilities – there is no such a thing as ‘a step’, once the pulse is going, enrich your milonga by playing with the music’s rhythm and phrasing to give a variety of possibilities to the movement.

30/03/2019 - Workshop 3

‘Meta Fierro’ – ‘at full speed’, when the music opens fully the tap of sound and throws a waterfall of notes towards us.. solutions to render those fast bits, the 'fancy' moves you are looking for to not miss that fun moment! But in a musical context, not for the sake of it!
