Intimate, sensual, addictive - and it's entirely legal. Tango has taken hold in Diss and a growing number of enthusiasts from Norfolk and Suffolk get together every Wednesday night at the Park Hotel to learn how to dance the Argentine way.

Intimate, sensual, addictive - and it's entirely legal. Tango has taken hold in Diss and a growing number of enthusiasts from Norfolk and Suffolk get together every Wednesday night at the Park Hotel to learn how to dance the Argentine way.

Milongas, social dances held every few months, recreate the atmosphere of the dancehalls of Buenos Aires. Tony Ramsay and Kate Isotta, who teach the classes, have been delighted at how keen people are to learn.

"Tango has really caught people's imagination locally and that's partly due to the enthusiasm of Madeline Lees who took the initiative and invited us to start running a group in Diss, back in October 2006. We have found that what works is a consistent approach which builds up skills and confidence in a gradual way, in a friendly environment."

There are also plenty of opportunities to practise with 'practica' sessions in Diss at the Angel Cafe every Sunday morning and at the Garage dance studios in Norwich every Monday.

For details contact kate@tangoabrazo.com or Madeline on 01379 642470.
