Tangueria Sidewalk Tango – Inter/Advanced

Taking it to the Next Level


This level is suitable for dancers who understand the basic level criteria and the underlying structure of tango. Although we will be working as couples the class is restricted to the same household or regular couples only.

The focus is on finding a connection within the embrace and how to incorporate musicality. Challenging tango combinations are taught and discussed. This level allows for the opportunity to deepen the expression of the dance, allowing your personal style to emerge through musicality and more complex adornments.


Price Structure

  • Basic Class One Person $25 Class package block of five x 1 hour class $100

  • Basic Class Two People $46 Class package block of five x 1 hour class $180

MelbourneTango – Tango 1 & 1.5

Tango beginner classes – Tango 1

Dancing Tango can be taught in way that make you fail over and over again. Tango Melbourne beginner classes will get you doing things within moments that you never thought possible.We love the dance and with our passion and your joy we will get you out and dancing socially within weeks.

Tango Level 1.5

Push your tango a bit further.  Tango level 1.5 is a combination of Movement sequences, Tango Vals and Tango Milonga.

The Sequences are some of the most common and usable sequences so that you are ready to go out and move with others without having to worry about knowing what to do.

In the Vals / Milonga Classes you will learn the way to dance to Vals & Milonga.

At a Tango Social event (also called a milonga) the music is divided into 3 types.  Tango, Vals and Milonga (the musical style, not the social event…yes we know its confusing). Although Tango is the majority of the music played the other 2 styles are used every 4 or for tandas (groups of songs)

Tango Vals is a dance in groups of 3 like other valses however, in Tango Vals you will be using your Argentine Tango ideas to make it all happen.

Milonga is where tango started.  It is a dance based in groups of 2 and is the ‘fun’ more folk style of tango.

Tango 1 – time 6 – 7pm

Tango 1.5 – time 7 – 8pm

TangoMelbourne Practica


At the Exford Hotel in Melbourne CBD (following Tango classes), you will be able to dance up a storm at Practica CBD every Wednesday.
