Unique features

Argentinian Tango and a real Spanish street fiesta! Our classic spring tango break in Granada, taking place alongside Las Cruces de Mayo fiesta.

Tango in Granada includes a full tango syllabus with popular Argentinian teachers Carlos and Debora (ten hours) as well as evening milongas, sociable nights out and the chance to immerse yourself in a real Spanish street festival, Las Cruces de Mayo. "Cruces" is Andalucia's biggest festival and the streets of Granada are awash with elaborate flower-adorned crosses, celebrated with dancing, street food and Sangria into the early hours!

The tango syllabus is suitable for all levels and Carlos and Debora's method of teaching ensures that everyone will take something away from their week in Granda; beginner dancers will return with a new confidence in tango and more advanced dancers will learn at least 3 or 4 new routines.

We stay in the 4* Hotel los Angeles in the centre of Granada (one of the few city centre hotels with a swimming pool) and in addition to daily classes and nights out there is time to explore the city. Tango in Granada is fullt hosted and our local expert will ensure you make the most of your stay in Andalucia's favourite city.
 

The Alegría of the Spanish Fiesta Las Cruces de Mayo celebrates the triumph of life over death. Each square has amplified music for dancing and every corner of the town is filled with 'alegría' well into the small hours in true inimitable Andalucian style. Las Cruces de Mayo finale takes place every year on the 3rd May.

Learning experience

Carlos and Debra can take beginners or people who have only a bit of tango experience and by the end of the week, providing you commit yourself to learning, utilise the practise sessions and also have a go at the Milongas in the evenings, you will be able to dance the basic tango steps with a partner with confidence and also have a few really cool looking decorations in your repertoire to spice things up.

For the more experienced dancers, Carlos and Debra can bring your tango on in a week to levels that you would not have dared to hope for. But once again, how much you learn is down to the commitment you want to make during the week.

They will start the first session by just asking you to dance a tango while they observe. At the end of that first dance they will grade each person according to their ability and put them in the most suitable group. The groups are then separated and C & D will give each group a series of dance steps, aimed to “Stretch” them and also so beautiful that you will want badly to learn them! They come round at least every 5 minutes to personally help you when you need it and once you have mastered those moves, they will give you an even more challenging sequence – and so on.
