Tango Classes

Tango Stoke run weekly Argentine Tango classes in Barlaston on a Tuesday evening. The club is based on the dojo ethos used in many martial arts; we promote group learning in an enquiring environment.

We believe that by working together to refine technique, movement and self-awareness we develop the solid foundations needed to become proficient, musical, Tango dancers.

Come and learn with us on our sprung maple vintage dance floor

We agree with Carlos Gavito when he said:

A good dancer is one who listens to the music. We dance the music not the steps. Anyone who aspires to dance never thinks about what he is going to do. What he cares about is that he follows the music. You see, we are painters. We paint the music with our feet.”

We invite you to come and paint the dance floor with us


Our Monthly Sunday Milonga
Sunday January 4th
6:30pm - 10pm

If you haven't experienced a milonga at Tango Stoke yet, this would be a great time to remedy that..

With a warm friendly atmosphere to dance in, and an imaginative blend of traditional music presented in tanda/cortina format, Tango Stoke's monthly social milongas are a way to press the pause button on life and escape for a few hours.

At this milonga there will be a heavy emphasis on traditional music (95%+).

Doors open 6:30pm
La Cumparsita 10pm
Entry is £8
We are at ST12 9AA

We will also be having our ever popular 'sharing table', there is certainly no obligation, but if you wish to bring along something you've cooked, or a packet of snacky type things it is always greatly appreciated.

There is no licensed bar, but fresh teas and coffee are available. You are also welcome to bring your own drinks, soft or alcoholic.

Alternative Tango Evening
Friday December 12th

Learn the rules...
break the rules!

Learn the rules... break the rules!

After the success of our previous Alternative Tango nights, Tango Stoke is delighted to invite you for another night of carefree social alternative dancing. The evening consists of two DJs playing a huge variety of non-tango music for you to dance to. There will be music from all sorts of times, places, backgrounds and styles. All of it suitable for carefree social dancing; none of it composed with tango in mind.

There will be no tandas, no cortinas, no traditional tango music, no modern tango music and no cabaceo. Dance with who you like, for as much or as little as you like, eat, drink, laugh, dance and have a good time. What an excellent way to start your weekend!
