ABOUT US

NORTHERN TANGO ACADEMY
We are the only tango schools in the UK to have professional Argentine Tango dance couples from Argentina teaching for us throughout the year (rotating every three months).  We carefully chose some of the top young dancers and  teachers, who also include recent world champions, and we also ensure continuity by having the same teachers return regularly so that you get to know them well.
