In our beginner courses we aim to get you dancing and to dance, knowing some steps is helpful!  That said there is far more to tango then just taking steps, and at QTL we teach these steps with a constant focus on making sure the leader is actually leading and the follower following.

You can see some of the content of our beginners’ classes in the videos below as demonstrated by Queer Tango London dancers.
