A night to remember!!!
SUNDAY 25th Feb
GRAN MILONGA

It is with regret that I have to write to explain the cancellation of the Costas trip to London at this time. Amanda has had a sudden bereavement in her family, and so needs to be with them at this difficult time.
Here at tangosouthlondon, our classes & the Gran Ball will, however, continue and take place with a community of excellent dancers who have been learning from and practicing the way the Costas teach for over 7 years! It would be a pleasure to have you join us- if you like the style of the Costas, you will definitely enjoy our community.
Hope to see you at classes or the ball…

A unique chance to hear David Thomas introduce his wonderful book ‘Getting to Know Twenty Tango Orchestras’.
Tuesday 17th Oct, 2017
7 30- 8 30- Talk by David Thomas (£10)
8 30- 10 30 Practica (£6)
His book has been described as ‘an all-over brilliant multi-media experience’ …tonight you can hear him draw on a font of knowledge, making listening to Tango together a real pleasure as well as an education.
To read reviews and find out more, look up

Anthony Cronin says
‘The approach is refreshing and the book has enough detail to last you for several readings as your understanding of the wide domain of tango music and it’s history grows.
The approach is as follows. Each orquestra starts with a personal story about the leader, then a section on their signature sounds throughout their career. Then the singers are discussed and finally the key musicians and a summary. These are not laced with long lists of single release dates that make pages look like a balance sheet. There is a charming balance of detail and flow, to make a light and readable story that helps you grow in your understanding. The movement of key people, especially singers across orquestras is also tracked in a nice way.
This is a book for you if you are now dancing and starting to recognise the different orquestas, If you already know them well and their songs but never got into the background.’
Signed books will be on sale at a discount..

The most extraordinarily atmospheric and gorgeous venue to dance in!
See short film here

4- 5 Class with Veronica Palacios (milonga)
5-8 30 Milonga
Class & Milonga = £15
Performance= 7pm Veronica Palacios & Alebrto Ortiz
Just Milonga= £12

VERONICA PALACIOS has her own unique style, combining the true salon heritage with a touch of tango fantasia. Grace, elegance and sensuality are all essential qualities of her dance- along with the freedom to have fun and play! This is infectious- and will inspire us all to liberate the unique dancer in each of us….
Unfortunately, her partner, Omar Quiroga, was due to travel with her, but has been indisposed. FORTUNATELY, we have the exciting combination of our very own resident maestro ALBERTO ORTIZ, who will be improvising together with Vero…. we will be on the edge of our seats as Tango once more shows us how new converstionas can begin with strangers who share the same language.
