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.  

MIRIAM ORCUTT & DANTE CULCUY
Directors


Successful young Argentine tango dancers, choreographers and teachers who have become known for their passion for teaching and dynamic and expressive performances. Over the last few years they have been invited to teach and perform across South & North America, Europe, Asia and Africa. They are currently based in the UK, with two thriving tango academies: The Northern Tango Academy and Oxford Tango Academy. Dante started tango in Jujuy, Argentina, where he also was studying ballet. He has been teaching tango for over ten years and has become recognised for his clear explanations of tango movements and technique and in depth-teaching methods. Miriam trained for ten years as a professional ballet dancer and
is also a qualified yoga teacher. She fell in love with Argentine tango when she met Dante on her first visit to South America in 2007. They have been dancing and teaching together since and have been guest artists in tango schools, milongas and festivals across the world, including the Mallorca Tango Festival, Nottingham Tango Festival, Porto Tango Festival, Ulverston International Music Festival, Karlsruhe Festival, Che London Tango Festival and The International Book Fair Mexico 2015 as special guests representing the British Council. They have also been part of shows with important orchestras such as Tango Siempre, Aurora Orchestra and Daniel Melingo. They were finalists in the World Tango Championships in Buenos Aires in the category of Tango Salon (de pista) in 2015. They ensure only the highest quality tango teaching and to this end are the only tango academies in the UK to have a team of professional resident teachers from Argentina. Talented couples are carefully selected to join the team, who are both exceptional dancers as well as strong teachers, in order to give you the best tango training.
