Greetings to all! My name is Oksana Krasnova, I am Ukrainian. Getting to know the tango club is one of the most pleasant experiences for me in Britain. Incredible atmosphere of the class and everyone who attends it. Professional teachers, Samira and Steve, who are deeply in love with dance, put a lot of attention into ensuring that everyone makes progress in dance. I have been visiting the club for less than half a year and in a short period of time I have mastered the basic movements that allow me to move freely and enjoy dancing.

I look forward to every Thursday and several hours of classes fly by in one breath. I am happy to meet the Club – the world of tango, milonga and vals. Thanks to everyone who surrounds me and accompanies me. Thanks to Samira and Steve for sharing their experience and knowledge with me!

If you wish to learn Argentine tango as it should be danced, this is the place to go ❤️ Leigh Tango is a welcoming club in an ideal venue. Both Samira and Steve are excellent instructors in their step-by-step guidance, giving you confidence to Tango the best you possibly can. I love every minute of the lessons, even though at times I feel I have two left feet!

Our guidelines on staying safe in line with government advice:

With confirmation that almost all remaining COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted in England on 19th July from Thursday 22nd July, in line with government guidelines, we are pleased to advise that:

Class size capacity will increase, thereby meaning we will now be able to accommodate the waitlist, as we have been fully booked previously!

Couples no longer need to stay in a fixed couple during class if they don’t wish to, as we can allow people to rotate (we are still encouraging you to pair up with someone as you book in, so that there is a balance of leaders and followers in class).

Please do not attend if you have any COVID symptoms, including a runny nose / hayfever type symptoms, or if anyone you live with is self-isolating.

We will continue to have hand gels to use as you enter and leave the studio.

The venue offers adequate ventilation and we will continue to utilise and comply with our comprehensive COVID risk assessment, which includes regular deep cleaning of the venue.

Face coverings and social distancing are no longer a legal requirement, but please feel free to continue wearing a mask if you feel more comfortable and also be considerate of other people’s personal space.

We will proceed cautiously and carefully and continue to monitor government advice. If necessary, we will make the required adjustments to our safety rules.

Thank you for your understanding.
