Queer Tango on the Thames

Part of Summer

Bringing fresh air to real tango, Queer Tango London hosts free gender-blind classes, followed by dancing under the stars late into the night.

Kick off at 4pm with an Absolute Beginners Class, where you choose to lead or to follow, or both – no experience or partner needed.

From 5pm onwards, beginners and experienced dancers are invited to tango to intoxicating music provided by live bands including the Tango Terra Quartet, and Corina Patti with Simon Morris on guitar.

With queer tango performances, a bar on hand, and DJ sets from Claudio Tedesco and Anna Jorgensen, the whole evening is rounded off by dancing under the stars till 1am.

Queer Tango London collaborates once again with Peng Newman and Tango on the Thames to welcome absolutely everyone to Queer Tango on the Thames, held alongside our Hayward Gallery exhibition Kiss My Genders.
