Suffolk Tango is a non-profitmaking organisation which aims to promote Argentine Tango in Suffolk. We are an enthusiastic group whose aim is to build an Argentine Tango community in Suffolk. We run dances (milongas) practicas (practice sessions) and organise teachers to run classes and workshops. Our own local teachers take some of the classes.
Click here to play some music (Carlos Di Sarli) to get you in the mood and click here to see a video of argentine tango. It shows one of our guest teachers, Gabriela Fernandez. Argentine tango is a social dance which is improvised to the music, the television portayal of argentine tango is often the big set-piece rehearsed choreography of a show dance. In either case the delight of the tango is the strong connection between the two partners and the music.
