CANCELLED - El Abrazo Milonga

Fri 3 August 2018

This event has been cancelled.

Following the fire at Glasgow School of Art and the O2 ABC music venue, the Centre for Contemporary Arts remains within the cordoned area in Garnethill. At this time, there is no set date for re-entry, and the centre expects to remain closed for the duration of July and August.

We are working with our programme partners who had scheduled events throughout this period. Details of new venues and cancellations are here.

El Abrazo Milonga is a relaxed and enjoyable evening of traditional Argentine Tango social dancing. Resident DJ Jeff Allan plays music in tandas with cortinas. Tandas are composed of golden era tangos, milongas and tango-valses with some contemporary arrangements of the classic tunes as well. We encourage good floor-craft and use of mirada and cabaceo.

If you are new to Argentine Tango you are welcome to pop in to observe for free how this wonderful dance is practiced in its social form. You can talk to us and ask the dancers about their own experiences of starting and learning the tango. If you would like to get stated yourself we can advise you on the the next opportunity.
