More About The Teachers
Jenny & Ricardo
Jenny Frances and Ricardo Oria love tango - its music, its song, and its dance. They love the moment of surrender in the arms of your partner, the feeling of losing yourself and yet finding yourself at one with the music, at one with your partner, at one with yourself. They are proud to be part of the tango community: a rich culture steeped in history, which is still of relevance today and continues to grow.

Jenny and Ricardo love dancing together on a crowded floor (or on an empty floor) and hope to transmit some of this through their performances and through their teaching.

Jenny and Ricardo came together in 2002 and since then they have been invited to teach and perform in the UK, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, France, Spain, Germany and Argentina.
They also organise and participate in the annual 'Bailongo! Tango Festival' in Edinburgh.



Marisol Morales & Alejandro Larenas
Marisol Morales & Alejandro Larenas's dancing ranges from pure tradition to mind blowing innovation. Rich in musicality, spotless technique and a very skillful and precise teaching method to explain this popular dance. When it comes about dancing is all about improvisation!

Rene & Wilelmini
Rene discovered his love for dancing at the age of 14. When he started taking dance classes at one of the local dance schools, but very quickly moved into competition dancing in both latin and ballroom.
For twenty years now Rene has been dancing, living, teaching and breathing Argentine Tango, and it took him to Tango dance floors and events all over the world. Together with Hiba Faisal he founded the TANGO-FEVER dance school in London in 2008. Where they organise classes for all levels, and create wonderful social events, where this beautiful dance can be enjoyed.
Wilelmini started dancing Argentine tango in 2008. Back then she was dancing Latin Ballroom dances professionally, competing in events and teaching.
She was so passionate about tango that after a few years she gave up Latin dances. And after a brief pause, she started engaging fully into tango dancing & teaching in 2013. Since then she has attended festivals and studied with maestros both in Greece and worldwide.
Before she moved to London about a year ago, Wilelmini has been teaching tango for 5 years in dance schools in Thessaloniki (her hometown) and Kozani and last year she performed in "A Los Amigos" Tango Festival in Crete.
Rene & Wilelmini have been working and teaching together at various tango projects/events in the UK, and classes hosted by TANGO-FEVER in London. They both are really looking forward to share all their knowledge that they have about Tango with YOU!

Warren & Irina
Warren has been partner dancing man and boy for more than 20 years. He has taught many different styles including Modern Jive, Swing and Blues but it is Argentine Tango where he has now focussed his teaching energies. Since founding the TangoBootCamp, Warren has helped introduce well over 1,000 people across the country to Argentine Tango. He also teaches his own classes 3 nights a week in Sussex and his style which combines technical clarity, humour and passion has developed a substantial loyal following. He will quickly demystify this challenging dance and have total beginners confidently dancing a reasonable standard by the end of the weekend. He also promises to excite and challenge intermediate dancers with some interesting technique and sophisticated figures.









Dave Payne + Angela Stewart Armstrong

Angela has been dancing all her life and it is obvious to see by the elegance of her movement and beautiful lines she creates while dancing. She is a familiar face in Blues rooms all over London and the South East where she is equally at home dancing as a follow, lead or indeed solo.
Having gained many certificates and honours throughout the years in a variety of dancing styles, she has gone on to compete successfully recently defending ‘The Centre Stage Showcase Category’ at The Crystal Blues Challenge among others with her dance partner Dave.
Angela has taught Swing Jive and Lindy for over ten years, she also teaches Rock n Roll, American Tap classes and choreography and has choreographed many dance shows and troupes. She has performed at various venues including Swing dance events in London and Kent where she was in a Charleston Duo and also in the Jive Squadron who competed on Sky TV’s “Got To Dance” show. Her love of that scene and vintage music introduced her to Blues dancing and developed her obvious love for both partnered and solo blues ever since.
To ensure she keeps up to date with her own training in dance Angela takes classes regularly. Some of the teachers she has recently attended classes with include Sharon Davis, Jean Volez, Adamo & Vicki, Nick Jones & Diana Cruz…

Dave has been dancing for longer than he can remember, (but this could be due to age). First appearing on stage at the tender age of nine where he was reminded that “over two thousand people have paid to watch this” it was a lesson he hasn't forgotten. He can usually be spotted at various Blues events by the luminous glow of his hair.
Coming from the “Dark Side” of Salsa, bachata & kizomba where he competed with some success, he was persuaded (not necessarily gently) by Hev to try his hand at blues and eight months later found himself competing in and winning various categories at the Crystal Blues Challenge. It was here that he met his future dance partner Angela whilst competing against her and the two have competed in both choreographed and freestyle events ever since.
Dave has a passion for Blues in all its formats and has taught fusion styles of modern blues mixing elements of Tango, Bachata and Kizomba enabling dancers to expand their repertoires and explore different elements of musicality within their Blues.
