"My partner has made more progress after 1 hour with Maria and Leandro than many other classes during the past year! Really amazing, thank you so much for sharing your passion to dance." - Sandra Sniezek (2019)
"Maria and Leandro are not only technically excellent teachers of tango - they approach their students with a sensitivity and respect that create a wonderful learning environment for everyone. A truly elegant couple that lives tango through and through." - Niko Kim (2019)
"Fantastic 6 in 1 workshop (Afternoon Intensive)! Maria & Leandro are in a league of their own for their highest quality of teaching, bonhomie, ultra professionalism, kindness, and huge hearts; in addition to being awesome dancers. 20/10. Any beginner like me wishing to learn is privileged to have them as teachers. 6 weeks covered in 3 hrs, a feat. Thank you so much!" - Katherine Robinson (2019)
"Absolutely fantastic Tango School, my favourite after sampling many! Leandro & Maria are really lovely people too; patient, encouraging and charming, you can tell their goal is all about their students. Highly recommended." - Mark Waters (2019)
"By far the best school in London. I started Tango Classes with LPTA as a Beginner in January 2018 . I offered the ABC course as a New Year's gift to myself. Best gift ever!!!
Not only you learn from professional dancers but from professionals who are high class dancers and teachers at the same time. ABC with Filippo & Laura and now level 2 & 3 with Leandro & Maria. The courses are very well organised and structured, systematically building up your skills and your confidence, while the atmosphere is always full of energy and lots of fun. Maria's workshops for ladies go beyond the standards. A rare combination of dance anatomy, 'how to', 'be feminine' and 'enjoy your dancing'. Keep up the amazing job guys!" - Effie Pergantidi (2018)
"Great classes and amazing atmosphere! I felt welcome from the very first moment I stepped into the academy. The teachers I've met are not only amazing dancers but also excellent instructors and always really warm, encouraging and approachable! Can't recommend highly enough" - Margarita Kousteni (2018)
