Monthly Milongas

Monthly Milongas are the perfect venue for all students from the Guildford, Portsmouth and Chichester classes to meet and dance together modern Tango.

It is highly recommended that the beginners also stay in for the Practicas, as it is an opportunity to practice the Dance. I will be assisting anyone during the Practica, so feel free to ask for help if needed.

In the first week of every month, the Guildford, Portsmouth afternoon and Portsmouth evening class formats change to a 1-hour All Levels class, (1/2 hour class on Thursday afternoons) followed by a mini milonga. The location, price and start/end times are exactly the same as the regular class.
