Welcome!

We are Tanguito ('cute little tango' in spanish, pronounced tang-eeto).

We live and breathe tango and have been told our passion is contagious.

We are London based and do all things tango-related: classes, milongas, corporate events, clothing & even holidays to Buenos Aires. If you wonder what tango is all about (or love it already), we would love to hear from you!

La Milonga Que Faltaba – Grand Opening 12.10.2017

By |September 15th, 2017|

♫♬ La Milonga Que Faltaba! ♫♬

Llegó a buena hora, la milonga que faltaba.
Que salgan a la pista, los más tigres que quedaron
y que bailen como antaño se bailaba,
con cortes y requiebros bajo el techo de la parra
la milonga tan porteña que faltaba.

There was something missing on Thursday nights… A milonga with a large and beautiful floor, plenty of space, invited DJs, Golden Age/trad only, and more importantly a milonga that truly belongs to London, by Londoners and for Londoners! Here it is, the ‘Milonga Que Faltaba’!

=== Wait! What does it mean? ===

Rather than your usual milonga, the Milonga Que Faltaba is an open space where everyone can get involved, come and DJ, come and perform, and participate in its organisation. A truly unique concept in London!

=== Co-hosts ===

Alex Barberi + Winston Veerender + Paul Aitchison + Tanguito

=== Every Thursday evening ===

» special workshop by invited couple: open level (except beginners), 7.30 to 9pm
» dancing 9pm – midnight (extdd. on 12.10)
» an invited DJ
» one tanda at 11pm by anyone: simply put your name down up to the day before to play your favourite tanda*. A few rules apply for your tanda: (1) tango only, 4 songs, (2) same orchestra and style (with singer or not, and melodic vs rhythmic) and (3) same period
» one performance at 11.45 (one song, max. 3 min) by any couple: : simply put your name down up to the day before if you want to perform*. Great to get the exposure to the London scene, or if you are competing at the championship and want some experience!
» free coffee, tea and cakes

* first come, first served!

July 2017 – End of term review

By |July 16th, 2017|

This week marks the end of our Academic Term focusing on the Tango Dimension Energy. Time to review what you've learned!

Tanguito’s 6th Anniversary Party

By |July 12th, 2017|

It’s been an amazing adventure we had with you and hundreds or passionate tango dancers! Is it possible to summarise 6 years of tango love? OK, let’s try…

Thanks to you we’ve taken a few tango steps in the last years: Tango workshops and private tuition every day, a weekly milonga, a tango fashion range (to date, nearly a thousand orders sent to 25 countries!), a yearly London festival (the ‘CHE’) now in its fourth edition, tango holidays to Buenos Aires and Japan, and of course working with stunning talents including Juan Martin Carrara and Stefania Colina, Daniel Naccuchio and Cristina Sosa and many more. And more importantly, so many friendships developed.

So let’s celebrate these 6 years, and Nati’s birthday (turning 18 this month… humm more or less…) with a grand afternoon of tango, cakes and friendship.

PROGRAMME: SUNDAY 23.07 at LOS ANGELITOS

» 2pm Beginner & Improver class
» 3pm Intermediate & Advanced workshop, THEME: steps and combinations that Nati loves! (It’s her birthday after all, but rest assured, you will love these steps!)
» 4.30pm to 8pm: MILONGA. A huge birthday cake. Party. And lots of tandas.
» Entry: £12 for the class, £16 for the workshop (incl. milonga), £8 for the milonga.
» Non dancers are welcome: we will open the second hall (practice hall) so they can try their first tango steps if they like!
» LOCATION: Unity Hall, 277A Upper st., Angel N1 2TZ (Angel tube)

» And so we can plan enough cake and drinks for everyone, please confirm your attendance by sending us a quick RSVP MAIL >.
