Spitalfields tango

Posted on June 23, 2011


spitalfieldstangoThe summer season of Tango at Spitalfields has started.


Celebrate summer with free outdoor milongas, held every Thursday from 7–10pm, with free beginners’ classes at 6.30pm. Wear dance trainers or comfortable shoes, since the outdoor floor is hard. There’s a canopy over the dancefloor, in case of English drizzle. See or email for details.
