Our Tango Company at City Academy aims to bring the passion and elegance of Argentine Tango to stage. Majority of the sequences used in the choreography can be used directly in social tango.
The choreography is simply an eye catching version of the passionate dance form that Argentine Tango already is.
Our Tango Company rehearse on Monday evenings with performances throughout the year both on stage and in the middle of London's Milongas.
Rehearsals are held Monday evenings from 8:20PM - 9:50PM at Fitness First on Tottenham Court Road. As you rehearse with our Tango Company, you will gain skills in these areas:
Appropriate shoes, water bottle
Our Tango Company perform twice a year at the City Academy Winter and Spring Dance showcases. There will also be multiple opportunities to perform in the middle of London's popular Milongas.
City Academy student, Ravi Patel, spoke to us about his time in the Tango Company and what he loves about being a part of City Academy.
"My most memorable moment was when a member of the audience at our Tango show said that she was moved to tears when she watched us."
The company director, Winston Veerender has been part of many Tango performances especially for performances catered towards students of Tango. He brings this experience to teach students in a methodical and progressive manner to create slick performances.
