When you get the tango bug, you start doing more classes and going to more and more milongas. Then you start travelling for tango. That's when you know your hobby has become an obsession.
It may even reach epic proportions; you might get to the stage where you build an extra wardrobe for all your tango outfits and shoes.
With all this tango-fuelled expenditure going on, it's nice to know that White Rose Tango has a cunning plan to save you a bob or two.
Ladies and gentlemen, we bring you... the Dancers' Discount Card!
A Dancer's Discount Card costs just £30 for 5 White Rose Tango classes - that's £5 off the normal price of 5 lessons.
You can use your card at both our York and Wetherby classes... just remember to bring it with you and get it stamped!
But your card doesn't just offer you a fiver off; it's more than that.
Save up your used cards and you can use them to take advantage of our special monthly dance deals!
For some offers you'll just need one depleted card. For others, you'll need more. Save 10 used cards and you can trade them in for a FREE card at any time - yes, that's 5 FREE lessons!

Need some help buying new tango shoes? Our quick-start guide to fancy dancefloor footwear is here to help.
First up, do you need special tango shoes? Will salsa or ballroom shoes do?
Ordinary dance shoes will be okay, but the higher, thinner heels on ladies' tango shoes are positioned slightly further back to push your balance forward onto the balls of your feet and toes, giving you a naturally elegant tango posture.
Tango shoes also have harder, less flexible soles to stop the shoe bending when the foot slides along the floor. So it's worth investing in a pair or twenty, as every tanguera will tell you!
Who makes good tango shoes?
A FEW GOOD MAKES TO START WITH
Volver and Werner Kern
Both these labels make quality shoes at mid-range prices (between £50 and £100).
Find the shoes you like on the manufacturer's 'brochure website' and then search for them by brand and design name on Google.
Prices vary quite widely between different resellers' websites, so it's worth spending time being an intrepid Google monster!
LA CREME DE LA CREME
Comme Il Faut
Limited-edition high-fashion tango shoes made in Buenos Aires. They're expensive (about £170 on average) but they're beautiful quality and you're guaranteed to have a fairly unique pair.
Google for a UK or EU-based stockist to be sure you won't get stung for import duty!
