For a quick overview, we are starting with regular tango courses on Mondays! The first round starts already tomorrow (2018-01-08), and we hope to have more of these during the spring. It is our own Kjell Frode and Mona that will teach you all of the basics of tango! It will be good both if you are completly new to tango, or if you would like to refreshen your tango skills.

We will be at Saualoftet during the spring, but there might be some room changes. Gamle Slaktehuset are hosting part of the library, so they have less rooms than before. If you can’t find us then ask in the reception.
