Tanguito: 12 years already!
Now is the time to properly celebrate and throw a big party at beautiful Jacksons Lane (1min walk from tube), with lots of surprises. We will start the afternoon with classes with Bruno V Abeele and Tango Worldwide Championships finalist Laisa Souza, on the exciting theme of mordidas and changes of dynamics – alongside managing a busy milonga.
The extended milonga will be featuring the live music of TANGO SIEMPRE and guest DJ Diego Doigneau, as well as our first ever Student Ronda (click here for details on the ronda if you would like to know more) and Yuyo Brujo, Bahar Designs and Pure Royal.
Tickets will be sold at the door but can also be bought online with a discount (see below) from 31/10. The coffee and bar will serve delicious fresh food and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
