Annalise has loved dancing since she was 3 years old. She started learning tango with Tango Essence and fell in love with tango at first dance. Since then she has travelled frequently throughout Europe to top international tango events where she has gained valuable experience, learning with a wide variety of high quality teachers as well as practicing her skills over hundreds of hours on the dance floor. Recently she has been studying with Joël Rodrigues and practicing with regular dancer partners in Paris. In 2017 she taught several workshops in Germany and also made a teaching debut in Tango Taboe Camp alongside top teachers such as Murat Erdemsel and Agustin & Natalia.

Beginners Workshop in Social Argentine Tango

15th June 2-5pm at the Swansea Wellbeing Centre, Walters Road.

No previous dancing experience necessary! Join me for this workshop aimed at introducing the fundamentals of the tango walk, embrace and music. Social Argentine Tango, unlike ‘strictly’ tango, is a much more relaxed, connected and improvised dance.

Joël Rodrigues


We’re delighted to be having further visits from this very popular teacher. Joël Rodrigues has been teaching Argentine tango for nearly 10 years, with the last 7 as a full-time professional. He is a highly creative dancer and teacher who has the exceptional ability of combining the technical finesse from Europe with the passion from Argentina.

Joël has a remarkable and original understanding of how the human body works. Most importantly he has the ability to convey that knowledge as direct experience to each person he is working with, to see, feel and show what is needed to find more ease, comfort and efficiency.

If you’re interested in working towards excellence, whatever your style or approach to Tango, Joël has a lot to offer. He has made four previous visits to Swansea, and his previous classes and private lessons were much enjoyed and appreciated by all who came, so don’t miss this opportunity! Join us for workshops, practicas, evening milongas and private lessons.

September 4th-8th
