Practica at Hressó


Every Sunday from 5:30-8:00 pm, we host a guided practica at Hresso bar and restaurant, located at Austurstræti 20. In a cosy corner of the bar with an excellent wooden floor, we practice together and work on details in the dance. We change roles, and sometimes watch tango videos, etc. We play mostly traditional tango music with an occasional mixture of alternative music. Everybody is welcome, no partner needed only enthusiasm for dancing! Or just come for coffee or other refreshments, sit and watch.

Admission is 700 kr. or buy a discount card worth 10 admissions for 5000 kr.

It's Scientific - Tango is good for you!

In a recent issue of the Danish tango magazine Tangotiden, there was an article covering a study done in Frankfurt, Germany, showing the positive effects of tango both physically and emotionally. Read the Icelandic translation of the Danish article on our website, or download a pdf of the complete results of the study in English from the online journal where it was published.

What is Tango Technique?

Have you ever taken a tango class and found the figures difficult to learn even though you understood intellectually the steps you were supposed to do? If so, then you would probably benefit from taking a class in tango technique. Perhaps you have simply not learned to extend your leg properly, disassociate your upper body from your lower, or really connect with your partner as a leader or follower. Once you master these basics in tango movements, learning new steps and figures will be much easier and it will feel more like tango.
