We are very happy to announce we have a new venue for our weekly Wednesday classes in London. Starting on Wednesday 4 October you can find us at The Castle, 44 Commercial Road, E1 1LN.
The pub is close to Aldgate East/Whitechapel and Liverpool Street stations and has some parking in nearby streets after 6:30pm.
We currently have a poll running on Facebook about the start times of the two main classes to ensure everyone is able to get there in time. Have a look!
Well, September is nearly over but we still have some exciting classes and events in the next couple of weeks and lots to look forward to in October.

In London, our Wednesday classes have now stopped for our Summer break and also whilst we find a new venue for our classes from September. Watch this space!

TOMORROW WEDNESDAY 12 APRIL 2023
OPENING NIGHT AT ST LUKE’S COMMUNITY CENTRE, EC1V 8AJ
An evening of classes at all levels, come alone or with a partner.
Improvers/Intermediate – 8pm
Advanced – 9pm
We have a new beginners course starting, with discounts if you book 6 lessons, and a new loyalty scheme for people attending the Intermediate or Advanced classes
Drop in prices are £15 for one class and £25 for two. People who sign up to the 6 week beginners class get each class for £10.
We can’t wait to see you all!
Here is a helpful map and some pictures from the outside of the building so you know what you are looking for:
We are back in London! Classes start at our new venue, St Luke’s Community Centre near Old Street on Wednesday 12 April. We will hold classes at all levels.
New 6-week beginners course also starting on Wednesday 12 April. Tell your friends!
Tango Y Nada Mas, London
We have finally settled on a new home for a 3 month trial period!
FIRST NIGHT – WEDNESDAY 12 APRIL
The Studio at St Luke’s Community Centre, Old Street has an amazing floor and mirrors in the room. We can hold all three classes in an evening BUT we cannot stay for a practica 🙁 We can have refreshments 😉
Old street is much closer than you think to our old venues in Bethnal Green and Shoreditch. It is accessible by various bus routes, tube and train options.
It’s been a tough decision as we have another venue we like and which would allow us time for a practica but they only had availability on Tuesdays. As the majority of you said Wednesdays were the only day you could do, we have taken the decision to trial St Luke’s.
Please tell any non-tango friends (if you have any left :-)) that you would like to bring into the fold as we will finally have our beginners/fundamentals lessons back. We will be introducing loyalty cards/boxes again too 🙂
We can’t wait to see you all again, we have missed the classes sooooo much!
