Ask Arlene…About Buying Dresses from Walter Delgado

Arlene my name is David Crawford I am the Tango North East Group Manager.

I would like to talk to you about Walter Delgado’s visit to the UK last November.  My wife & two of her friends paid £150 each for dresses from Walter. It is nine month since November & none of the three ladies have received the dresses from him or a refund of the money.  I have tried to contact Walter but he has not answered my messages.

Have any of the ladies in the London or Brighton ordered any dresses from this man?


David Crawford


Dear David,

I am sorry to hear about your troubles with a visitor from Buenos Aires.  The only thing I know about Walter Delgado is that he designed costumes for Tango Fire.  I haven’t had any information about this before, but maybe some of my readers could help.

Over to you people.  Any ideas or advice?

Tango Fire – Flames of Desire

Half an hour before each performance, there will be a free milonga for audience members to take part in. To get the milonga started every day, the Sadler’s Wells are inviting 4 couples to come dance during the entire duration of the milonga on the stage of the theatre.. In return, the participants get a free ticket for the show. The couples need to arrive 45 minutes before the start of the show, so they can collect their tickets and then take part in the milonga from half an hour before the start of the performance, cast members from Tango Fire will join the milonga for the last 2.

Following sell-out seasons in New York, Barcelona, Hamburg, and Cape Town, Argentina’s hottest dance company, Tango Fire, returns to the Peacock Theatre with its brand new show, Flames of Desire.

With some of the speediest footwork and tightest twirling in the business, this sizzling show takes audiences on a journey through the history of tango, from its origins in the dance halls of Buenos Aires through to its growing popularity as a contemporary dance form. Flames of Desire features ten sensational dancers including three world tango champions, one of Argentina’s finest young singers and Quatrotango, a quartet of brilliant musicians.

**** “Each duet a mini drama, sexual electricity at the twitch of a hip”

Combining the rawness, sophistication and sexiness of tango, you won’t want to miss this authentic show that will leave you longing for the intoxicating passion of Buenos Aires’ late night dance halls!

30 minutes prior to each performance audiences are invited on the stage for a milonga, a traditional public dance practised in Argentina.
