Dear All,

We are very pleased to announce that, in addition to our usual fortnightly milonga on Sundays, “El Portenito” will open its doors on a weekly basis on Thursdays at The Bedford Pub in Balham.

To make our first evening special for everybody we would like to invite you all for some FREE dancing from 8:45-11pm.

Classes are from 7:45-8:45 and will be £7
Venue: The Bedford Pub, 77 Bedford Hill, Balham SW12 9HD (Tube/BR: Balham)

We love to see people dressed elegantly at our Sunday milonga and very much appreciate the effort you all go to. We like to dress up too, and want to keep Sundays special. However, on Thursdays we would like to create a different atmosphere so you are welcome to wear relaxed and casual clothes.

We focus on teaching Argentine Tango in its authentic form, without altering its essence. We believe it is important to stay true to this authentic form when teaching students at all levels, from beginners to advanced. To ensure consistency of approach, all those who help us teaching at our venues have a thorough understanding of our teaching method. Our guest teachers are invited because we believe that they can demonstrate the authentic and true essence of Argentine Tango.

As our Thursday classes develop we will teach different levels according to students needs!

We hope to see you all on 4th March for the inauguration !

***MILONGA DE TANGO DE SALON*** @Pushkin House
We will continue to dedicate one room to the rules of Salon Dancing!
Emphasising these simple rules of social dancing makes your dance a pleasurable experience!!
Enjoy the simple beauty of flowing in your dance on a crowded dance floor, close embrace posturing, and dancing in union with the other dancers on the floor, rather than as an individual.
Social tango with others involves floorcraft:
– keeping in your “lane” (not large side stepping into another “lane”)
– keeping behind the couple in front – NO OVERTAKING
– flowing forward on the dance floor – spending too long on one spot with figures stacks up the “traffic” behind you
– allowing the music to pause you when there are pauses, and move you in relation to the music (everyone is listening – hopefully!)
– naturally a lovely space is then created for ourselves and everyone around us

With warmest greetings
