Latin dances are very popular. Thus, after salsa or bachata, tango attracts more and more Mauritians. Faced with this demand, Joseph Ngeso offers courses for the greatest happiness of his students.
Of Kenyan origin, Joseph Ngeso lived for 10 years in Argentina. It is in the country of Che Guevara, that he took his first lessons to then transmit his passion to his Mauritian students: “I have been living in Mauritius since 2016. For some time, I offer tango classes in Grand-Baie. I learned everything in Argentina and I am happy to share my knowledge with Mauritians.”
And Joseph’s specialty is Argentine tango: “There are two types of tango. One is choreographed – so all dancers will dance the same way. I teach Argentine Tango – which is an improvisational style of tango. I invite my students to move to the tempo of the music.”
For a 1.5-hour class, it costs Rs 400: “The fee includes a brief theoretical part and the practice classes. On average, a few sessions are enough to learn the basics of this dance.”
