Haven't seen any worthwhile Tango Meetup entries lately and there is this fairly new Milonga on the scene close to Waterloo which is having another Milonga with live music this coming Sunday which might be worth checking out.

And even if you happen to be a complete Tango novices it could be a good opportunity to simply soak up the atmosphere, have a drink and listen to some live Tango music while watching the dancers.
Tango Tree Milonga happening again this Sunday 20th March

Oh dear, I originally posted this with a wrong date. Amended now and it takes place on Sunday the 10th January 2016 @ 4pm!
Right, so I've had a quick look around at the current Tango Meetup events (commercial ones that is) aimed at beginners or those that just want to practise. The one that stood out and is fairly reasonable priced is happening at Bow Road Methodist Church run by Frances Pace, Tango Instinct.

It's £5 p/p which is probably the next best thing after a freebie.

So if you are looking for something right now before our London Tango Meetup starts to grow it could be one to try.

NB Advance booking essential. Entrance on Bow Road.

Event Details

This event is for complete beginners AND those already dancing tango: see below for the different activities


We’ll give you a taste of this beautiful, sensuous dance and guide you through the basics.  Our teachers will help you become confident and skilled so you can enjoy the passion, connection and elegance of tango.
Taster afternoon: Sunday 10 January 2016

4-5pm: taster class: you'll learn simple, lovely steps
5-6pm: time to practice, socialise and be inspired by watching experienced dancers


4-5pm: *help out with the taster class (or bring a partner to practice with separately while the class happens)
5-6pm: guided practica: I'll facilitate you to switch partners with those at your level 

* if you'd like to help, you get free entry: contact me for a discount code

Do I need to bring a partner?
No - it's completely fine to come on your own or with friends

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No - your name will be on the guest list at the door.

What clothes / shoes shall I wear?
Please bring shoes with a smooth sole so you can turn easily.  Office/work - type shoes are fine; for women you can either wear something flat or with a small heel (trainers or heavy boots make it a bit more tricky).  You can wear any clothes you feel comfortable in.

How do I get there?
Bow Road Methodist Church is 5 mins walk from either Mile End or Bow Road tube - super quick on the central line -

London Tango Meetup community is all about making friends to explore the London Tango scene with. It's always more fun doing things in a group and I remember being fortunate enough to learn this pleasant pastime with some amazing people years ago. 

It may take some time to grow our Tango Meetup community, but it will be worth while. Quite a few Meetup groups exist already, but they all seem to be geared towards the commercial side of things which I am not overly keen on. So in the interest of growing members, I will periodically share events from other Meetups on here to give you all something to chew on so to speak until we start to create and share our very own Tango meetups.

In the meantime you may also like to keep an eye on the 'London Tango' community group, which aims to showcase all the main Tango events in London.
