Tango Classes

Our weekly tango clases are currently in recess for the summer. We look forward to welcoming you back in soon.

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


Alternative Tango Evening
Friday December 16th

Learn the rules...
break the rules!

Come and be a part of the tango underground at Tango Stoke. We are delighted to invite you for another night of carefree social alternative dancing. The evening consists of two tango 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!

Toda los Pasos
Monthly Mid-Week Milonga

Toda los Pasos - our monthly milonga with a difference, it's mid-week. Tango Stoke are proud to invite you to Toda los Pasos. A friendly milonga experience mid-week, once a month.

This milonga will provide a great way for new dancers to acclimatise themselves with some of the Argentine Tango codigos, as well as the presentation and general flow of a milonga.

The milonga will also help to satisfy more experienced dancers who are perhaps looking for somewhere to dance mid-week rather than somewhere to take a class.

The music will be suitable for 'all steps'; GA and beyond, tango, milonga, vals, modern and a little nuevo. It will be presented in tanda/cortina format, and will suit experienced and less-experienced dancers alike.

There will be a communal food table which is perfect if you like to generate joy by cooking, and perfect if you prefer to just generate a tummy by nibbling. However, there is absolutely no obligation to bring anything with you but your shoes and your dancing spirit.

There is complimentary tea and coffee available through the evening, and we invite you to bring your own soft or alcoholic drinks with you should you wish.

Cost £8
Tango Teachers Gratis (please bring your fliers)
Free Car Parking (on site and lit)
Doors Open 8:15pm
