Join Alex White from the Wellington Tango School and learn some Spanish language and culture through dance as well, as to keep it as authentic as possible, many of the names will be in Spanish as well as English.

We’ll be focusing on Salsa and Tango, but will also look at the basics of other common Latin dance styles: Merengue, Bachata, Kizomba and Zouk.
