About this event

Our Sunday milonga with a twist!

19:00 – Guided Practica with Ani and Damian

Damian is back in Edinburgh! And we are delighted to invite you to join us for a guided practica with local teacher Ani Tchakmakdjian and visiting teacher Damian Thompson. This is a great opportunity to meet Damian and Ani (if you haven’t already!) in an informal learning environment, get 1:1 help with anything you are working on and improve your dancing under their excellent guidance for 1 hour.

The practica is open to absolutely everyone with any level of experience. Just turn up!

This is not a formal class so to get the best out of the practica you will need a partner. If you can, arrange in advance to  partner with a friend or otherwise arrive solo and try to partner with another solo dancer.

There is no additional entry fee to join the practica. Just pay the usual £4 milonga entry.

20:00 – Milonga and performance

After the practica the DJ will begin his/her set for our regular Sunday night milonga. During the evening Damian and Ani will give us a short demonstration of improvised tango.

See you there!
