Story | Article | News | 07 Feb 2019


What’s been going on at Leigh Tango?

Well, January was a fantastic month for us; classes are well underway, our returning dancers are making massive improvements every week (it was fantastic to see them all again after a fabulous festive break) we have also welcomed new dancers to the Leigh Tango family.  We always love meeting new people and get a real buzz from introducing Tango to them and watching it change their lives for the better.

We also celebrated our 5th Birthday with a Gran Milonga, we can’t believe we are 5! what a wonderful journey it has been, thanks again to everyone who has been a part of it and thank you to all of those who celebrated with us on 26th January.  Here are some photos from the evening.

Tango music

We have been having a fabulous time at classes this month. One of the themes we’ve been covering recently in class is the vals and have been focusing a lot on the conductor, Donato and the following songs:

‘Con tus besos’, ‘Mendocina’ and ‘Estrellita mía’. We used this for our special vals on our 5th birthday anniversary of leigh tango. Check out the music here, you may want to use it to practice at home.

Con Tus Besos
