And although we have come officially out of the lockdown, from the 19th of July onwards, we still have some Covid safety measures in place. To make sure that you and our team, are comfortable and can enjoy the afternoon as safely as possible. This also means that there will be some (temporary) changes in how we run the Tango Garden classes & events:
* For the time being we will run Tango Garden every other week. For exact dates see below.
* We will only use the Band Hall for our classes & dancing (the Guide hall will be temporarily closed).
* Therefore the class schedule will be different, and all classes are in the main hall
* We recommend strongly that people buy their discounted class or milonga tickets online through our website booking system, so we can track & trace if necessary.

The Milonga 4-7pm - in the Band Room there is an Argentine style 'Practica social' type Milonga a relaxed atmosphere informal dance space. A very social space where the line of dance and circulation rules are respected for the enjoyment of all, but without the strict rules associated with ultra-traditional milongas (see FAQs for more information).
The Pure Practice Room 5pm - is temporarily suspended.
We usually have home-made cakes (made from scratch by Mariano or Rene with good quality ingredients, such as free-range eggs). Plus there is tea/coffee, biscuits, sangria during the warmer months and other refreshments. We happily put in the time and effort for the baking as a gesture of our love and appreciation for all who attend Tango Garden.
We do appreciate a small donation of £1 to help cover the cost for all the ingredients.

"I had a great time in your classes at Tango Primavera in Stockholm... I have to say that I love your mixture of taking it seriously, having fun and sometimes teasing the seriousness... it's great, and inspiring"
