Brisbane Tango Lessons | The Essence of Tango

Learning Argentine Tango is not just about learning the steps, but also about developing poise, elegance and balance. As a truly social dance, it’s also a great way to increase your confidence and communication skills.



You can learn the beautiful Tango with The Essence of Tango in either private lessons or group classes. All our lessons are taught by leading Brisbane Tango teachers at both our Brisbane dance studios, which are located in Toowong and Kelvin Grove.

However, if you prefer and you have a suitable space, our instructors can also provide lessons at your home.

Dancing Argentine Tango

Dancing Argentine Tango is very simple. However, like many things that are simple, you can spend a lifetime perfecting it!

At its base, Tango is based on walking, turning, stopping, and adornments, and is a creative expression of the feeling and connection you have at a particular time and place with your partner and the music. This creative expression causes the Tango to be interpreted differently each time you dance. Men and women bring their own styles and adornments to the dance, which significantly contributes to the dance’s uniqueness, unpredictability, and fun. Each partner never quite knows how the other will react to a movement or interpret the music. Like all good conversations, when both partners contribute, the result is much more enjoyable.

Argentine Tango is danced in an embrace that can vary from very close, with a chest-to-chest connection, to very open, with the leader and follower connecting at arms-length, or anywhere in between. It’s up to you and your partner. Close embrace is often associated with the more traditional styles, while open embrace leaves room for many of the movements and adornments that are associated with Salon Style or Tango Nuevo.

Tango Terminology

Molinete — Windmill; wheel: A figure in which the lady dances a grapevine on a circumference around the man, stepping side-forward-side-back using forward and back ocho technique and footwork, as the man pivots at the centre of the figure. This is a very common figure in tango which challenges both the man and the lady to maintain good posture, balance, and technique in order to perform it well.
