ESTABLISHED IN 2014 and based in Greater Manchester, TEA AND TANGO is the pseudonym for Ruth who runs Argentine Tango milongas and tea dances at various venues across the North West.
Why did I start dancing Argentine Tango? My son was 15 and I could go out dancing. I discovered Modern Jive but this type of dancing wasn’t satisfying enough, and I heard of Argentine Tango – I didn’t understand it, didn’t know if I could do it, but I had seen versions of it in films and on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing and decided to go along to a class. From the beginning it captured my soul – when I have the opportunity to dance in the arms of a fabulous leader I am able to experience connection, emotion and musicality in a truly humbling form.
I have run my own businesses for many years, and have been dancing for more than 18 years. I am a qualified adult trainer and spent many years as a nightclub Catering Manager and Conference Centre Manager. I taught ‘Modern Jive’ and was an Argentine Tango demonstrator. I run my events professionally and customer friendly – a warm welcome is guaranteed, with no cliques.
I am an official member of the UK Argentine Tango Association and was actively involved during 2020/21 in it’s formation. I continue to be actively involved in the UKAT Association’s monthly meetings, and would encourage all Argentine Tango dancers to join the Association (check out www.argentinetango.co.uk email email@example.com)
