Venue: Bickleigh Castle
A most gorgeous setting (usually used for weddings)- you will feel like you have finally ARRIVED to the sort of beauty & service you deserve!
Situated on the Devon and Somerset border, in rolling countryside within its 30 acre Estate, just minutes away from Junction 27 and Tiverton Parkway train station. There is a fast train from London that takes 2 and a half hours!
We will have full use of the premises, including the Great Hall (a beautiful, wooden floored room) in the castle for dancing & lessons.
There will be a fully licensed bar.
There may be some rooms available to stay the night- these will become available nearer the time, once we have final residential numbers (those staying for the Tango course).

General Info re our milongas:The style we love to teach & dance is Tango de Salon (including the best of Villa Urquiza & fantasia). We welcome all styles, but we would like to emphasize that respecting the distance between couples, minimal overtaking, keeping the flow of the dance floor, and the use of cabeceo are important codes in our milongas.

‘Cabeceo’ or ‘nod of the head’, is how one invites and acknowledges a partner for a dance in the milongas of Buenos Aires. For dancing to have meaning it has to be desired by both the woman and the man. This method of asking a woman to dance gives her the ability to accept or decline with the minimum embaressment and social risk for all concerned. This ritual evolved over many years on the dance floors of Argentina, and although it is not without its pitfalls, I think it can be an elegant solution that also carries the charm of tradition.
Look up Ms Hedgehog’s excellent review of our milonga http://mshedgehog.blogspot.com/2010/04/tango-south-london.html
