Tango Garden has TWO rooms. So whether you like to socialise, just enjoy some nice dances, practice and investigate or a bit of everything, Tango Garden is the place to be on a Saturday Afternoon. You can quite literally have your cake and eat it !!
'The Practica' 4-7pm - in the Band Room is an Argentine style 'Practica social' a relaxed atmosphere informal milonga-like dance. A very social space where the line of dance and circulation rules are respected for the enjoyment of all, but without the strict rules associated with ultra-traditional milongas (see FAQs for more).
The Pure Practice Room 5pm - in the Guide Hall is a pure practice space with background music without cortinas. People are free to stop and discuss and work on anything they like.
Great tango music in tandas with cortinas by our resident DJ Mariano*
We usually have at least 3 home-made cakes (made from scratch by Mariano and Maral) plus tea/coffee, biscuits, sangria and other refreshments. We happily put the time and effort in for the baking as a gesture of love and appreciation for all who attend Tango Garden.
We appreciate donations to cover the cost of all the ingredients.
So we look forward to having you join us for some fantastic afternoons of tango dancing!
*OUR DJ MARIANO LAPLUME
besides being an experienced Tango dancer and teacher Mariano has a long history as a professional musician playing tango in more than 40 milongas in Buenos Aires and more than 80 cities around the world for almost 9 years. We're lucky to have him!
