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
Alternative Tango Evening
Friday May 20th
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!
