Tango Teachers Samira Ashraf and Luis Rodriquez

Samira Ashraf & Luis Rodriguez

• TANGO TEACHERS •

Samira Ashraf started dancing Latin and Ballroom more than a decade ago and since discovering salon tango has dedicated her dance to that style. Her technique is true to the roots of tango from Buenos Aires, where she has spent time learning this beautiful dance.


Luis Rodriguez is a well known Argentine tango teacher with over 20 years of stage and salon tango experience. He is famous for his mastery of the milonga – one of the three dances that make up the tango.


• DANCE STYLE •

The kind of tango we teach is completely improvised and is very much in keeping with how people dance at traditional milongas – tango clubs – in Buenos Aires, the birthplace of tango.


The emphasis is on musicality and interpreting the music in a way that enriches people’s dance and gives them the confidence to dance socially.


• TEACHING APPROACH •

Our focus is to help people interpret the music by being playful and creative with it and dancing elegantly with a warm embrace – all key aspects of salon tango.


Traditional Argentine salon tango is not choreographed so no two dances will ever be the same, learning how to connect with your partner is what makes this dance so special – we hope you will think so too.
