Stokie & Essie-Jo Founder's
of Tango Stoke
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 Milonga to Midnight

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 8pm

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.
