Tango Teachers in Tauranga

We're fortunate to have a number of excellent teachers in Tauranga offering group and private lessons in Argentinian Tango, Nuevo and Stage Tango.

El Tango Classes

El Tango is run by Carl Robson, a longstanding member of the New Zealand tango community.  Carl has been teaching tango in both Auckland and Tauranga for the last 10 years.  His style is Argentinian Salon Tango and students learn a 'close embrace' hold with plenty of dissociation of the body in order to create fluid movements and seamless dancing.

Introductory classes are often held prior to the Sunday night Milonga and Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced classes held on Monday evenings, at the Arataki Community Centre, Zambuk Way, Mount Maunganui
