Ivan is one of London's best known tango teachers, and is the organizer of Negracha Tango Club. This popular milonga, which has been a mainstay of the London Tango scene for many years, is held on Friday nights at The Dilly Hotel in central London. Ivan also holds a Wednesday night milonga at the Kingston Workmen’s Club in Kingston upon Thames.
Ivan comes from a tradition of Argentine milongueros and is passionate about sharing his extensive knowledge and love for tango. His focus is on authentic improvised tango that can be danced socially, anywhere in the world.
Giraldo is one of the UK's top Argentine Tango Dancers, who together with his partner Mina, runs the popular Corrientes Social Club in Chalk Farm. Since establishing themselves in London in the late 90s, they have worked extensively as dancers and teachers, while also touring and performing in some of the best theatres across the country and internationally.
Performances include BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, the English National Opera’s production of Carmen, directed by The Tango Lesson’s Sally Potter, and Midnight Tango with Strictly stars Vincent and Flavia.
Giraldo believes that dance has the power to change lives. Sharing his knowledge is not only about passing on Tango legacies and traditions, but is also about witnessing people transforming from shy dance aficionados to confident, proud Tangueros, making every effort that he and Mina put into their Tango classes worthwhile.
