Sue: I have been dancing and continuing to study Argentine Tango for the last 18 years. Being one the first members of Tango Y Nada Mas – Cardiff (the first tango club in Wales) I have learned with some of the best visiting maestros from Argentina.

While living in Lanzarote I opened and taught a tango group. At present, I work with some of the most respected teachers, spreading my love for Tango. I have developed an understanding of both gender roles of the dance and my aim as a teacher is to provide tools to enable dancers to enjoy and develop their own style in this amazing dance.

here’s some random trivia about me: Coming from Italian background I like cooking and eating together with family we love to bring friends into that meal to share with love of being together along with good wines of course. I love bright colours; they make me happy
