Hey There!


Last weekend we had the second of our Jango Workshops in Penge, London, really well attended and a fantastic group of enthusiastic dancers – so more workshops are planned for the near future.  This is a great oppertunity for people near or in London to get some more Jango going.  I’ll let you know when the dates are set.   I’m working with a dance company in Leeds until the end of this month, ( but I’m back in London in May when we’ll also be running some Tango workshops, and have a couple of special performances planned too!  


More on that soon, in the mean time, this coming Sunday Monica is running the last of her Follower Technique workshops, so don’t miss out!  You don’t have to have made it to the other classes to come to this one… here’s a quick note from her:



Follower's technique - Boleos, Volcadas and Colgadas with Monica Lopez


Throughout the class we will work on exercises and tips to improve:

·         Posture, balance and connection with the leader.

·         Dissociation, counter-rotation and releasing the free leg.

·         Embellishments for each movement, the importance of the music.

We will first cover the essential tango elements (walking, ochos and giros), with exercises specifically designed to provide you with strong technique and increased understanding of the follower's role.  In the second part of the class we will focus on boleos, volcadas and colgadas in depth, improving the way we manage our bodies to feel more confident and comfortable during these movements.


This is the last of these workshops that I will be teaching looking the fundamentals of tango from the follower's perspective.  You don’t have to have come to any of the previous workshops to take this one though. 

Please bring comfortable clothing and socks or soft shoes as well as your tango shoes.

Jango is a fusion of Tango and Jive. It is inspired by the freedom of modern-jive with the footwork and connection of tango. There are classes, workshops and a DVD available in the style, as well as hundreds of dancers around the country that have been inspired by this fusion. Events such as Funky Lush, Southport, Utopia and other blues orientated events play a lot of music that is great for this fusion.
