Merchant City Festival: Glasgow Tango Studio

  • Merchant Square 71 Albion St Glasgow, G1 1NY United Kingdom (map)

See, hear and try for yourself the mesmerizing dance of Argentine Tango. Dancers from the Glasgow Tango Studio will demonstrate how to express this passionate and beautiful music as a social dance. This is the style of tango danced in Milongas, the formal social dance events in Buenos Aires as well as around the world. When danced socially, Argentine Tango is not only about dancing the tango; we also dance tango-vals and the joyful milonga, the oldest form of dance and music of all these three dances, which will also be included in the programme.

During this event, Glasgow Tango Studio founders Sari Lievonen & Jeff Allan will also treat you to more elaborate tango moves with their demonstration of performance tango. In addition to seeing the performances the audience is welcome to try for themselves some tango steps in a taster session with Sari & Jeff, during which you can be partnered with one of the more experienced dancers to fast track the beginning of your tango journey.
