Milonga La Ideal with Tango Calor & Mabel Gomez/New Beginners/

  • This Friday May 3rd we start the May bank holiday on a very high note! Milonga "La Ideal"   will have live music to dance to by the wonderful Tango Calor quartet together with Mabel Gomez as DJ. Make sure your friends know about it! ( A flyer is attached).  It will be well worth travelling to. More below.

  • On Friday May 10th we will welcome absolute beginners to the 6.30 class at St Mary's to begin classes and hopefully start their new life . Please spread the word around about this too. In case it is relevant we have regularly had more leaders than followers at the 6.30 class for a long time. (A flyer for this is also attached.)

Carola Hengstenberg violin,
Daan Temmink piano,
Indira Roman vocals,
Mirek Salmon bandoneon.

For a taster see:


but we will have a quartet (including Carola Hengstenberg) rather than the trio here; or see a slightly different trio line up:


It will be a delight to welcome back Mabel Gomez who has been a good friend to Tango Warwick. The pairing of  Tango Calor with Mabel Gomez as DJ in the past  has proved to be a dynamic dream!

As well as this the special edition will include 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!

Please note the unusual start time of 9pm--but come early so as not to miss anything! Note too the higher price than usual.
£12 / (£8 - students). 9.00 pm to 00.30am (approx).

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 plentiful 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.

Hope to see you!
