TDJ was launched in April 2019, with the blessing of Jenny and Ricardo Oria, to continue the good work they established at La Redonda.

We aim to provide a safe and friendly, welcoming place where dancers at all stages on their tango journey can practice, dance, catch up with fellow tangueras/tangueros and come together to share and contribute to the running of the practica and the milonga.

Whilst we have a small core team who arrange and are responsible for the room hire and management, we aim to actively encourage our tango community to volunteer their time to host the meeting and greeting for our fellow dancers etc. We also encourage you to practice your DJ skills! Give us a shout if you wish to be our DJ at the weekly practica or our monthly milonga.

We look forward to welcoming you all.


Kim, Douglas, Duncan, Sheila, Harvey, Lindi and Liz – the TDJ team
