About QTL

Queer Tango London was founded in 2008 by dancer, Tim Flynn, and continues to be run by a team of enthusiastic tango dancers. It exists to promote Queer Tango in London, through our weekly Practicas, through networking with others, through getting out and dancing.

If you want to dance tango – and maybe experiment with who does what, and why, and how – we want to encourage that curiosity and share our passion with you!

They say that a YouTube video is worth a thousand words…

Ray Batchelor

Ray Batchelor stumbled across Argentinian Tango at a Salsa Weekend on the Isle of Wight in 2003. Ray says, ‘I knew at once it was ‘my dance’, but had no idea then, why. Like many others, I don’t like tango, I love it. My own dance is a fairly simple one, but I listen to the music as I dance, and listen carefully to my partners. No one stops learning, and my leading is better than my following – but I am working on it! I remain in awe of the joy tango can bring. It is a privilege to enable others to share that joy through teaching at Queer Tango London and elsewhere.
