♪ Tuesday Tanda – Ángel D’agostino (tango)

By |June 27th, 2017|

This week is a tango tanda by Ángel D'agostino, the pianist and director who also was also an excellent dancer. D'Agostino built on D'arienzo strong and clear beat but made it smoother and softer.

♪ Tuesday Tanda – Lucio Demare

By |June 13th, 2017|

Every Tuesday, we'll publish a different tanda on our blog, to get you inspired for the week. Expect some humming or little twitches from your foot - better not fight it.

♫ New song translation: Malena

By |June 9th, 2017|

We have just released the translation of Malena, by Demare with lyrics from Manzi.
This tango simply is mythical. There are so many hypotheses as to who Malena was that it’s hard to tell if she really existed.
Click, read the lyrics and listen to this beautiful song.

DETAILS OF THE COURSE
Similar to the Milonga sessions, we will start with the ryhthm of Vals, and explore how the communication between the two dancers change from tango. We will then explore fundamental steps for the vals.

In Vals II we will put together fabulous cadenas (chained steps) so particularly vals-like. We will end the Vals II session with tools to create your own cadenas.

WORKSHOP INFORMATION:

» LOCATION: Caxton House, Conference Room, on the first floor.

DETAILS OF THE COURSE
Do you have cadencia? We’re sure you’ve seen these extraordinary dancers who are skillfully playing with the music, whilst at the same time being incredibly connected to the rythm and the phrasing of the song. What they do seem to be simple, yet…

These two sessions will profoundly transform how you dance tango, freeing you from the question ‘what should I do next’, and providing you with the tools to make you a true dancer.

18/06/2017: Special ROYAL ASCOT Milonga [EVENING EDITION]

By |June 6th, 2017|

SPECIAL EVENT: ROYAL ASCOT evening milonga on June 18. Bring your hats!

On June 18th, we are celebrating Argentina’s second love after tango – horses – with a twist: our very own ROYAL ASCOT evening milonga!

Por Una Cabeza… throughout its history the world of horses have always colluded with that of Tango.
From gambling (the famous Cabeza song is, after all, a tragic story of gambling loss at the races), to milonguero gatherings at the Hipódromo in Palermo. And of course Argentina’s love affair with polo – such are the renowned skills of Argentine players that those who play for overseas clubs are called “hired assassins”.

And because England is also hot on the topic with the Ascot racecourses, we are celebrating with our first ROYAL ASCOT milonga. Bring your Fascinator ladies, gentlemen, dress smartly: it is going to be a night to remember!
