ABOUT

Tango Extravaganza is a unique dance and cultural experience.

The only one of its kind, a Weekend Dance Break that brings Buenos Aires, straight to your feet!

 

"We really wanted to bring Argentine Tango learning to a whole new level. We have our Academy in London and it is full on! Open 7 days a week with hundreds of students! But we thought how amazing it would be, to really spend a whole weekend with a group of wonderful people... sharing the culture and dance that we absolutely love. And that's how the idea was born and the first Tango Extravaganza was brought to life! "
