The November schedule (right) is to give an idea of the classes during the weekend. A new schedule will be available nearer the time.


This will be reviewed nearer the time. We share the Hotel with other guests, although we have exclusive use of the function rooms we use.

In the interests of everyone participating in our dance event, we require you to take a Rapid Antigen Test (Lateral Flow Test) within a few hours of your anticipated arrival at our event check in reception desk in the hotel bar. After you have taken the Test, please take a full face selfie of yourself clearly showing a negative result next to your face. This image should also clearly demonstrate the time and date the test was taken. You will be required to produce this proof of a negative result to our reception staff as a condition of admission to the event.

We strongly recommend also that you obtain a FREE Lateral Flow Test pack from your local pharmacy and bring it with you to the event. This will enable you to self-test yourself periodically during the weekend.

If you feel unwell or test positive before the event, then you should not attend and follow medical advice accordingly.

This is a dance event and there will be a considerable amount of hand-to-hand contact. PLEASE wash your hands frequently and each time before dancing with a new partner PLEASE ensure you use antibacterial hand gel to cleanse your hands. Hand Hygiene Gel will be located throughout the Hotel and our functions rooms; however, it is also advisable that you bring your own when attending classes or social dancing.

Our aim is to provide a wonderful dance weekend in as safe an environment as possible. We have limited the number of attendees and will maximise airflow where possible in our dance rooms.



Argentine Tango classes run throughout the weekend and a schedule of classes will be supplied on arrival at the weekend.

When you arrive at the hotel, please check into your room, then register with our event staff who will issue you with a wristband. These must be worn at all times. Breakfast and Dinner is included in the cost of the weekend as are all the classes and you will need to show your wristband at these times.

Teachers & DJs

Jenny & Ricardo Oria

We're absolutely delighted that Jenny & Ricardo will once again be on our teaching staff this weekend. This fabulous couple are regulars at our Weekends, teaching and performing - and they always give us a stunning show.

This is what they have to say about Tango:They love tango - its music, its song, and its dance, particularly it's dance. It's wonderful, social, creative, intimate, playful, serious dance.

We love the moment of surrender in the arms of your partner, the feeling of losing yourself and yet finding yourself at one with the music, at one with your partner, at one with yourself. We are proud to be part of the tango community: a rich culture steeped in history, which is still of relevance today.

We continually develop our dance, practicing and also still taking classes, and we have been really fortunate over the years to have been able to learn from some really wonderful maestros**.

We teach and dance tango salon .. tango for the dance floor. Each tango we dance is moved and inspired by the music and the subtle yet powerful conversation within the embrace.

Nathan & Essie Jo

Nath and Essie well known to anyone who attends our events at Hemsby and through the Argentine Tango events they regularly run in and around the Midlands. They are friendly, approachable and a popular couple.
