We had a wonderful night at the Light on 5th November with Clive Davison playing on 78’s. Such a precious opportunity to hear Tango on original shellac recordings. Thank you to Luciano and Pablo of The Light and to Clive Davison for joining us on this project for the first time in the UK.
As we mentioned in class last week, on Monday 10th October, for one week only, we will be holding our classes at Centre 151 – http://www.centre151.com/contact/ – This is a short journey down the road from our normal venue. Please contact us if you have any questions and see the picture for further details! Elizabeth & Luis
As mentioned last week, for those of you who were there, and some news for those of you who were not, next Monday 12th September we have reserved some tables upstairs in the Water Poet, from 7pm onwards where we will share a brief history of Tango and how it developed along with a summary of some of the orquestras and what makes them distinctive.
It will be an open, informal discussion with lots of time and opportunity to ask questions and share your views.
For those of you who are new to tango it will provide a useful introduction to the music and for those of you with many years of experience it is an opportunity to share your views with others.
So come along for a social, informative evening. Get to know your fellow tangueros better and learn about the music with time we do not normally have in a practical class setting.
The following week, Monday 19th September, we will be back in the Cellar bar for our normal classes and practica.
The talk is free, just bring yourself and buy a drink!
We cannot wait to finally be in our new space this evening and start our classes and practica*. We will be running classes in this space every Monday starting with a Beginners class at 7-8pm, Intermediates 8-9pm and then a practica 9-11pm. Here is a little preview of our new space in action! We look forward to welcoming you to Tango y Nada Mas soon.
*New to Tango and to sure what a ‘practica’ is? This is time to practice what you have learned in the class. We are on hand to answer any questions and help out and its an opportunity to mix and dance with fellow students. This is a great time to work things out in a relaxed setting, it is informal and doesn’t follow the same ‘rules’ as a ‘Milonga’. The ‘Milonga’ as explained on one of our other pages is a place where we go to dance Tango in the evenings, it is more formal and there is some basic etiquette to understand before attending your first one. A Milonga is also one of the three dances we learn, when we learn Argentine Tango (Tango, Vals (waltz) and Milonga). It may sound a little confusing at first, but we go through all of these things in our classes!
On Monday 6th June, following our Beginners Taster Class we welcome people to come and see us in our new venue for a little Milonguita! Space is limited so we have created an event on our Facebook page:
We are teaching in the Residence of the Ambassador of Argentina in London on Wednesday 1 June at 6:30pm.
This is a rare opportunity to experience a class in this setting. There are a limited number of FREE places at this beginners class. To come to the class booking is essential as they will need to have your details on the door. If you are interested, you can secure your place by emailing email@example.com
