"Tango Garden is wonderful! There is absolutely nothing I would like to change about the lessons, Maral's and Mariano's teaching is among the best I've ever had. I really like the atmosphere during the practica and the pure practice room. And there's cake, what's not to like?"
"Maral & Mariano are by far my favourite tango teachers and offer something truly unique. Instead of the usual focus on steps, their approach is much more holistic and focuses on understanding of the principles behind the dance - starting with breaking up from step sequences and teaching how to creatively use your dance vocabulary, through music interpretation (which goes much deeper than any musicality classes I've seen), to insights into Argentine culture and tango origins. It really feels like you're dealing with a sage with an in-depth understanding of every aspect of tango. I couldn't possibly recommend them enough."

"Maral & Mariano's lessons were the first time I saw how following in tango could be an expressive art. I loved that Maral was able to introduce the musical, physical and emotional aspects of tango in her instructions in a very accessible way. The combination of high-quality technical instruction with a consistent focus on connection and breath really pushed my dancing to a new level. It was a really well-rounded, valuable learning experience, and I'm looking forward to more!"

"I first met Maral & Mariano at a ‘Mango’ workshop and to my surprise I did not get stressed out as I usually do - it was a relaxing and really enjoyable learning experience. I’ve subsequently been having private lessons with Maral and I always feel that after a lesson with her the quality of my dance basics like balance,posture,movement and musicality improve every single time – even if I can’t master the technicalities of a specific step. The flexibility in her approach combined with the focused way we collaborate really works for me and it’s very 'sticky learning ' that I don't forget. I find myself intuitively recalling what she teaches me when I dance at a Milonga and I love the fact that my partners are starting to notice the difference in the confidence and clarity of my lead. I think she is a truly gifted teacher, a lovely fun person and a gorgeous dancer."

"I first met Maral & Mariano at a small group class which they give regularly in London. Their attention to detail and to each member of the class was impressive - and delivered with charm, good humour and at a very reasonable price.
Now, in private lessons with Mariano, he is focussing not on steps but on helping me to move with balance, control and smooth efficiency. This leads to a flowing ease of movement, without tension, which is allowing this wonderful dance to become an ever more pleasurable experience both for me, and from the feedback I get, for the leaders who dance with me.
Thank you, Maral & Mariano - I continue to gain so much from your teaching and I wholeheartedly recommend you to all tangueros."

"Best of all I like the love. Cakes, sangria, fairy lights and occasionally Mariano's violin. But love is not enough. I think you need to manage a class so that every participant is looked after. You need to keep your website updated. You need to structure your lessons, explain the intention behind exercises and demonstrate and highlight technique in the movements taught. You need to keep the tango thrilling. And for me, you need to provide an opportunity for students to make a record of the lesson. M&M do all of the above and much, much more. "
