Contact Tango in LONDON

We usually meet on the first Thursday of the month @ The Ringcross Community Centre in North London, a short walk from Caledonian Road, Holloway Road or Highbury and Islington stations. These sessions started on the 1st of February 2024. Curiously, on the 1st of February 2009, I also started my monthly sessions @ the Siobhan Davies Studios near Elephant & Castle, which ran for 4 years and were called 'Tango Release'. I stopped to organize the International 'Tango Diferente' research week in Germany, which also ran for 4 years. After that, I focused on teaching intensives in France and supporting the Wuppertal Contact Tango Festivals.

Now, I am back where I began, to nurture a group here in London. I am looking forward to sharing my dance with you!

The next sessions are:

7-8 PM: CLASS. I will offer a few ideas to get us in focus and moving.      

8-9 PM: jaMilonga. Is it a CI Jam? Is it a Milonga? Neither and both! DJ Shuffle will 'play' an eclectic mix of music (from one of my playlists) to inspire and accompany our dance. Requests are welcome. No cortinas!

Optional: cabaceo, floor work.


Join these fun, creative partnering sessions, inspired by and rooted in Tango Argentino and Contact Improvisation techniques. Contact Tango emerged around 25 years ago in Europe and is now danced and enjoyed by a niche group of enthusiasts on three continents, most recently in Argentina and the USA. If you enjoy dancing tango and CI a little differently these sessions are for you. 


Please arrive at 6.30 PM if you wish to warm up. Space is also available from 9 to 9.30 PM for warm-down.

Please note: practice shoes or socks are recommended. No rubber soles.
Please take care of yourself and others when dancing. Always opt for gentler and safer options. Take creative risks rather than physical risks!

She choreographed 'Adagio, con brio' in 2005 and revisited that duet for a quartet in 2008. Her monthly Tango Release sessions in London ran from 2008 to 2013, and her International Tango Diferente research week in Ponderosa (Berlin) ran from 2012 to 2015.
She has taught and performed at festivals in the UK and abroad, including Germany, Sweden, Spain, Italy, France, Belgium and the USA.
