Beginners Winter Project!


Argentine Tango - A Winter Project!

Anne-Maree Therkleson a Tango Teacher for over 20 years of Tango Libre, is offering Absolute Beginners Classes to start you on your Tango journey, for the first time since Covid.

She is very excited to be offering this special 7 week Introductory Course.  

Anne-Maree says “I have been waiting a long time, to find the right time to offer this, and what time is better than Winter when it is so easy to become a couch potato!  The course will cover a little bit of history, the fundamental elements of tango, musicality, connection with yourself and your partner and of course how to move around the floor.  It is always very exciting to introduce dancers to Tango as it is a very special, connected and passionate dance. The community is wonderful, welcoming and fun.”

Anne-Maree has been dancing for over 25 years and teaching for well over 20 years. She has had tango schools in Sydney and has been teaching in Nelson/Tasman for the past 12 years.  A very passionate dancer and teacher who also runs four Tango festivals a year in New Zealand, one of which is in Nelson.  

Anne-Maree says “It's great to be able to offer these elegant and busy festivals so people can strut their stuff.  Dancers come from many from New Zealand and Australia for the festivals, with a travelling tangueros (tango dancers) popping in from Europe, the UK and the USA.”

“I would encourage dancers of other partnered dances (Ballroom, Salsa, Rock'n'Roll, Swing) to come and give it a go and see what it’s all about. You don't have to come with a partner, but remember, it does take "2 to Tango” so it is very helpful if you come with a partner, just to keep you dancing all night!”

The Absolute Beginners course starts on 8 May and all the details are in the flyer below.  You can register by contacting her directly on You can check out her website to read all about her and all she does.
