Las Estrellas is now closed.
We are sad to inform you that Las Estrellas is now closed after teaching Argentine Tango to thousands of students from all over the world for twenty-five years. Opened in 1993 by Takis the studio was one of the first spaces in London dedicated to teaching and promoting Argentine Tango. In addition to the weekly classes Takis also produced and personally funded the six London International Tango Festivals 1999 – 2002, 2009 and 2011.
Takis has been unwell for the last year and his health has now deteriorated further and he is no longer able to teach. Unfortunately his condition is not going to improve and so we have sadly had to close the Studio.
We would like to thank all his students and friends for their support and we hope that everyone continues to dance the amazing Argentine Tango!
No more classes: Las Estrellas is now closed and will not re-open.
Shoes: We still have a stock of Tango shoes and Argentine Tango CDs (remember them?) which we will be delighted to sell to you. Check out the shop to see what our latest closing down sales offers are!
