We select teachers & DJs who inspire
We select teachers who deliver inspiring workshops and perform dazzling cabarets. But just as important, teachers who love their dancing and get out on the social dance floor with all of you.

We select DJs who love creating the perfect atmosphere during the evening dances. With these DJs on board, you'll get the ideal mix enabling you to practice what you've learnt in the workshops as well as dancing to your favourite tunes, including ones you haven't heard yet.

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.

 

Rene Hellemons

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.









 


Warren
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.

Nina has been performing and teaching together for over two decades, having made frequent Stage & Screen appearances including the West End show "The Cotton Club", films such as "Swing" and numerous TV shows such as the Generation Game and Blue Peter.
She has also been hugely successful on the competition circuit, twice being crowned UK Open Jive champion, along with having the accolade of being the first ever Ceroc Showcase champion.
She is best known however for her Blues dancing and back in the 90s, Nigel and Nina were largely responsible for the start of the current Blues dance revival here in the UK. When they travelled to the States they saw, and instantly fell in love with this beautiful family of Swing dances.
