"Hi there Herts.  Just wanted to say 'Thank you' for last nights introduction to the Argentine Tango.  Very inspiring, and i'll definitely be back with you as soon as i'm back from the States.  It was a pleasure to meet you."     Gregor S, Bournemouth April 2010

"Ola herts, thank you for building my confidence up I had a lovely evening and enjoyed the dance no going back now only forward... i will see you next tuesday"      Francesca W, Jun 2010 - Southbourne

"Want to say how amazing it was to have you teach me some dancing on Saturday evening, it was absolutely amazing to be experiencing something that I personally would only be able to dream of doing before, and I never thought my body would be able to do it. It seems to have a real benefit to my Cerebral Palsy and it is down to your endless amounts of patience and excellent teaching ability."    Noah F, June 2010

"Thank you again, i think Saturday night was the best experience of my life, and I feel like it has helped soo much in helping connecting my brain with my mussels - I would never have thought that Dancing could have such an affect."    Noah F, July 2010

"Dear Herts! I must say that I never thought I could ever dance tango but you had proved me otherwise with your amazing techniques you have shown me in the two lessons I had with you so far. You are an inspiration to people who feel can never dance in their lives.
I believe I can shed the extra pounds I have gained through stress by attending your amazing tango lessons. It has simply been wonderful experience. I just cannot thank you enough."     
Sincerely, Charlotte Hamilton , October 2010

"I paid in advance for a month's dancing with Tango El Mundo at the Durley Dean Hotel, and find it's a great offer, I dance twice a week, every Tuesday and Sunday evening, and you can also go along on Saturday's too as part of the deal. I have only been 4 times, and already I have lost 4 pounds on the scales. I enjoy the way Tango has improved my posture and Herts is a very good teacher. I would recommend this class to anyone who loves to dance and wants to lose waight"           Nicky, Pool - January 2011

" I am so pleased that a friend encouraged me to start to learn Argentinian Tango on Tuesday and Saturday evenings at Durley Dean Hotel. Already I am hooked! I know its great exercise and I will get fitter, but Tango is much more than exercise to music. Herts our teacher creates a friendly relaxed atmosphere to learn. And he teaches the essence of the dance, the language of Tango, not just the technical steps. If you have ever thought of trying Argentinian Tango, this is a great class to join, with or without a partner."       Liz - Bournemouth February 2011

Dear Herts,
I just wanted to say, how much I enjoyed dancing with you on Sunday, I feel you have a lot to teach me. Which brings me to the lesson I have booked with you next Sunday, hence why I booked the lesson on March. In order to secure the slot I am quite happy to pay for the next couple of weeks. I will then be available from April onwards. I would be happy to help you promote the venue, as I would very much like it to succeed. It is also very nice for me to have a venue so close to home.  
       Bye for now - Maggie.- Eastbourne march 2011



Hey Herts
Just need to say a huge thank you for teaching me to Tango.
Can't believe how relaxed I feel with it - your dedication to the dance and an endless patience to teach makes each private lesson and open class an absolute joy. Always wanted to learn and now you're making it happen. To be honest, I was nervous when I first joined a class at the Durley Dean but everyone is friendly and the atmosphere is great. My husband seems to like what it's doing to my body too!! Legs, tummy and bum all toning up - who needs the gym when there is TANGO!

This is such a beautiful and moving story, I had to share it with you.
We all get tangled up in our lives from time to time, and I love the sense of getting untangled with Tango!!

'The good work continue, I had a meeting last week in London with a colleague whom I had not seen for a year. She said "Wow, I hardly recognise you, You have lost so much waight" Good news eh? I haven't been diating, so it must be the Tango effect"
  Sandra  April 2011

Dear Herts
"Dear Herts, Just a note to thank you for being the DJ at my birthday party. My guests loved  trying Tango for the first time and said what a fantastic teacher you are. They plan to continue at your Tuesday class. Thank you again for making it a memora and fun party."
Lucy May 2011

"So looking forward to our pre-Christmas Tango party at our new venue, West Hants Club on 21st December. Hope you have space for a private lesson in the afternoon - I find it so helpful to have a private lesson and then practise in the evening class".    Elizabeth December 2011


To experience Herts’s teaching, is to begin to learn the true art of the Argentinian Tango, to bathe in the beautiful romantic sounds of the music and  quite simply feel the joy of being alive. He is the most outstanding dance    teacher,  (and I used to be one myself) he teaches tango, but he really teaches the art of being joyful. I feel fitter, more sexy, sleep better and smile more. All men and women who want to give themselves a boost towards more sensual, joyful living should get out of the pub and sign up immediately!

Herts! Great lesson last night - I think everyone really enjoyed it.    L xx, April 2012

Herts.  I used to be a dancer and dance all kinds of dances when I was younger and decided to try again in my latter years.  The attraction for me to come to your class is your unique technique in teaching and your never-ending patience with those of us who take time to master a step.  Thank you and I will certainly be returning week after weeK.          May 2012    Ruth x

Herts, I just want to say how much I am thoroughly enjoying your lessons, you teach the techniques for posture and the story of the Tango dance early on so it feels like I am learning the right way very quickly. You are a great teacher and you teach us to put feeling into the movement, thank you, I love it!

See you next time,
Thank you and regards,

Herts, I have tried out many classes but I must say that I am more than happy with the outstanding way you teach and your patience.  I will definitely continue with my private lessons with you and hope to become as great a dancer as you.

See you next week
