“I cannot recommend these queer tango classes in Edinburgh enough. They’ve got something for queer theorists, and mad folk, bad dancers, all genders and of course tango lovers!” – Darcy Leigh
QUEER TANGO CLASSES 2018 (details on the classes page)
New term starts Wednesday 5th September 2018
- Evening classes, Wednesdays, 7-9pm
FREE: your first 1 hour class is free!
Queer Tango is Argentine Tango danced with open roles. The traditional gender-specific roles are rejected: everyone can lead and everyone can follow; anyone can dance with anyone else. Queer tango is for anyone who wants to play with all that tango can offer. Queer Tango is for everyone, including those who identify as LGBTQIA and allies. Everyone Welcome: All sexual identities; All genders
Argentine Tango is a social, partner dance which is improvised. It is an interactive conversation between the dancers. While it may look good, it is so compelling because of how it feels. Argentine Tango is very different from the performance-focused Ballroom Tango.
Learn how to dance Queer Tango in an inclusive and friendly environment. Learn how to lead (suggest the movements), follow (interpret the suggestions), and mindfully mix things up. Have fun and make new friends. Come and be part of our fabulous Queer Tango community in Edinburgh.
beginners/mixed classes; Wednesday: 7-9PM
(note: absolute beginners welcome at all classes; we are growing this community organically and the mixed nature of the classes are delightful, supportive and wonderfully efficient at helping people develop their own tango)
If you are tempted at all by queer tango, I would love to hear from you.
