About the event
This practica is for Milongueros & compleate begginers, for those who wish to practice Tango in an inclusive, and friendly environment, we encourage changing roles, respectful dancefloor ettiquitte, and a warm family friendly vibe in a breath taking back drop of nature:
What to expect:
- Live music from:
Drew Walker singing, some Tangos and celtic and latin fusion music.
and then at the end an open mic to whoever feels inclined to share, in an ode to the origin of Tango in the conventillos where people shared what ever music skill they had.
- Olla Popular/Dinner
Bring a veg to take part in a wonderful Argentine tradition called an Olla popular, which translates to the pot of the people, it is a communal stew where everyone brings a veg, any veg to contribute to the pot, it is cooked in a wine and tomate based sauce for a few hours and eaten together, the concept is by everyone taking part, there is an abundance of food for all.
- A friendly environment conscientiosly created to be inclusive and welcoming to all. As milongas were meant to be, safe places that welcomes all.
We start with a little warm up, a small guided class to theame the practica, and then free to practice the rest of the evening.

The stew will be vegan, gluten and yeast free, however we can't cater for any more specific needs as the pot is of the people and we all share in the cooking and eating.
