A bit about the Salsa Tango Society

If you have always wanted a chance to try Cuban salsa or Argentine tango, or if you're just looking for something to do to disconnect from university every now and then here's your chance to join us, learn a new skill and meet a bunch of people with similar interests.

Argentine tango is an improvised dance, which means you won't learn patterns, just the technique to lead and follow whatever you want. This way you'll be interpreting the music yourself, you'll be able to dance with literally anyone, since the leading and following techniques are the same all over the world! And most importantly, you'll be able to dance to ANY music!

So, if all that sounds good to you give it a go now and join the Stirling University Salsa Tango Society!

 

Who can join the Salsa Tango Society?

Whether you have just returned from the Buenos Aires World Championship or you have never heard of Cuban salsa and Argentine tango before, there's a place for you in the Salsa Tango Society.

We're a new society, which means most of our members have never danced before, so if you have never been able to tell your left foot from your other left foot, this is the perfect time to join us!

You don't need to bring a partner, we'll try to get all the spare dancers (which is usually most of the people on the class) dancing together and switching partners every now and then. However, if you want to be absolutely certain you'll get someone dancing full time with you, you can always try to get someone to come with you.

 

Our Activities

  • Weekly Tango Lessons: Once a week we'll have Miguel Hernandez and Eva Molpeceres teaching us Argentine tango.
  • Weekly Salsa Lessons: Once a week, the professional dancers Yainer Carbonell Vegueriz and Anneta La Rusa will teach us Cuban Salsa. There will be one beginners group and one intermediate/advanced group. 
  • Weekly Salsa and Tango Practicas: On Fridays 7-9, we'll be having a free practice session for everyone to build up on their own level of salsa and tango and have some fun with the rest of the members of the society. 
  • Salsa Nights and Milongas: Once you feel confident with your salsa and/or tango, we'll be going together to the major salsa and tango events (milongas) in the area, dancing with other people, having a few drinks and enjoying ourselves.
