Brisbane Tango Lessons
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.

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.

Di Robinson, Brisbane
The Argentine Tango is a beautiful dance, and with the expert tuition from David Blair at his Essence of Tango studio, I’ve been able to learn and gain confidence with the tango. Everyone is welcoming and it is a delight to attend his classes. Highly recommended! Thank you David.
Jesus Zas, Toowong
Within Argentine tango there are various styles you may hear people refer to. Styles are as unique as dancers and it’s foolish to try to categorise either. Just know that if you hear terms like ‘salon’, ‘milonguero’, ‘fantasia’, or ‘orillero’, someone is talking about a certain style.
The Argentine Tango is a dance loved by many from all around the world. It has been around for many years and has cultivated cultures, societies and history itself. The dance is filled with passion, connection and elegance.
Tango is more than just a dance! You will improve your posture and movement (mobility, balance), connection and awareness with self and your partner, as well as the benefits from the social interactions tango brings.
