OWNERS & CREATIVE DIRECTORS

Meet David & Kim 

We’re so glad you’re here. 

We’re David & Kim Benitez, a tango teaching team since 2007.

We’re proud to be known as one of the leading UK tango couples and believe we have earned that reputation through our passion for teaching and our belief that every student is important and unique.

It is a great pleasure to watch our students grow as tango dancers, forge lasting friendships and become part of our big tango family.

We have helped thousands of students fulfil their dream to dance. Our students range from complete beginners to professional dancers from Riverdance and the Colon Theatre Buenos Aires.

We were voted LUKAS Tango Teachers and Tango Performers of the Year for two consecutive years. We have given interviews to the BBC and Argentine TV and press, and have performed on ITV to 10 million viewers.

We have recently opened the doors of our brand new tango venue, the most beautiful, atmospheric tango space in London!

Wherever you are on your tango journey, we would love to open the doors of our tango school to you!

“The most wonderful welcoming and comprehensive tango classes for all levels. David & Kim’s warmth, knowledge and expertise are unparalleled in central London. Look no further if you want to start your tango journey, with teachers that nurture you at each stage. Kim & David tick every box.”

Paul MacFarlane

“Not only the best tango performers in London but also the best teachers. Teachers who actually understand body mechanics enough to explain things in a language that beginners can understand & use. The classes are warm, friendly & the highlight of my week. They are charming, have a wonderfully located school & have created a warm & caring community around them.”

James Douglas

“Kim & David are stunningly elegant dancers but they are also passionate, talented teachers. They have been for me incredibly warm, genuine and professional. Their classes, challenging, fun and non-competitive, are a perfect environment to learn or improve your tango. Love them.”

Katy P

“David & Kim are not only the perfect compliment to each other as dancers but also as teachers. You really sense that they’re with you in whatever stage you’re at and in tune with what it feels like to be a beginner. I know how much I’ve gained by their support and I know I’m going to get 100% of their focus & expertise every time.”
