We start off the afternoon at 4pm with a friendly one hour Argentine Tango class for all (sorry not suitable for absolute beginners) with Alberto Ortiz, who is widely respected for his knowledge and skill in Salon Argentine Tango.

Twilight Monthly Hatfield Sunday Milongas have an elegant but friendly vibe, attracting Argentine Tango dancers from near and far. We wish for everyone to enjoy. Help by letting the outer line of dance flow freely, without dancers overtaking or stepping back into the line of dance. Traditional Argentine Tango music from the "golden era" is played in tandas with cortinas by specialist DJ Barry Leadbetter, who is one of the UK's most respected licensed Argentine Tango DJs. Ethos: The Cabeceo - eye contact & a nod of head - is used to signal the offer & acceptance of dances to avoid pressure & embarrassment.
