Teachers & DJs

Jenny & Ricardo Oria

We're absolutely thrilled that Jenny & Ricardo will once again be teaching this weekend. This fabulous couple are regulars at our Hemsby 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. 

Nathan will also be DJing in our Alt Tango room during the weekend.
