Milonga La Ideal | Raquel's Legendary Ladies Techniques & Styling
This Friday, 6th July, Tango Warwick's July milonga, designated “ Hot Summer edition”, will feature Michele Tedder as guest DJ. It will be her first time with us as DJ. Highly recommended, she comes from Tango West in Bristol which she set up with Andrew Oldroyd. They have just celebrated their 20th anniversary, and we look forward to benefiting from their years of experience in understanding the dynamics of what makes a milonga into a memorably wonderful experience.
AS AN EXTRA TREAT BIAGIO FORTE WILL START OFF THE EVENING at 8.30 WITH A TANDA OF LIVE BANDONEON MUSIC TO DANCE TO.
Of course there will be the usual warm welcome, traditional music, good company, lovely dances waiting to be had, delightful vibes, plus nibbles with some wine for early arrivers---but BYOB if you wish!
ALSO Miranda Perdja will be there with a selection of shoes and to take orders for Miranda y Stefano's bespoke Italian tango shoes.
£8 / (£5 - students). 8.30 pm to 00.30am
WHERE: Warwick SPACE , 71 Coten End, Warwick, CV34 4NU
Warwick SPACE is on the north side of the main road north of the river between Leamington and Warwick. Next to the Millwright Arms and almost opposite a Sainsbury local. The floor is very nice, the acoustics, great. Parking is plenty around the venue in residential areas but do not park on the pub next door or in Sainsbury’s – people have been known to be fined there! It is a short walk from Warwick railway station. There are several B&B's nearby and hotels etc in Leamington & Warwick.
Not much time left to book for Raquel Greenberg's Legendary Ladies Techniques and Styling Seminar on Saturday 21st July, 1.30 to 5 pm, in Leamington. Raquel always brings new flavours and layers so the content varies but is based on :
Use your legs and floor, not your partner Dance with expression and presence Get control over your balance and posture Style for your footwork Introduce Musicality in your dance Speed of legs Slow and fluid moves Sensual and Feminine Tango Secrets.
