21st July 2019 - Sunday Twilight monthly Milonga ... friendly vibe encourage all dancers, from far and near to enjoy and meet up with each other. Our monthly Sunday Twilight Milongas are known for their relaxing ambience. Please feel free to dress for elegance.
We wish for everyone to enjoy themselves, whether their personalities are introvert or extrovert! Remember, not everyone is the same. We only ask you to come with RESPECT for everyone, the music, the floor, yourself, your partner.
You can support this ethos by coming to our Dance with a good attitude and a positive hope for the event. You can also help by letting the outer line of dance flow freely, without dancers overtaking or stepping back into the line of dance. (We have plenty of space in the centre of the floor for those who prefer it). Please try to avoid walking on the actual dance floor if you are not dancing, whilst the music is playing! (We have room & circulation space behind our seating/tables).
Music - Traditional Argentine Tango, milonga & vals music, from the "golden era" , played in tandas with cortinas by specialist DJ Barry Leadbetter - who is one of the UK's most respected licensed Argentine Tango DJs.
Culture & Ethos: The Cabeceo - eye contact & a nod of head - is used to signal the offer & acceptance of dances to avoid pressure & embarrassment. Of course, you can use your own judgement, but even close friends seem to appreciate this consideration.
And remember.. leaders....the Cabeceo is ALSO used to "ask permission" to join a moving dance floor too..... all adds up to a beautiful Tango Community.
