"The dancers body is simply the luminous manifestation of their soul. This is the truly creative dancer, natural but not imitative, speaking in movement out of self and out of something greater than all selves"

Steve work on tango musicality receives award from sallycatway.com in Buenos Aires

SallyCat in Buenos Aires has awarded an ABBBA to Steve for his exciting and original work in the field of development of musicality in tango dancers; especially, his weekly workshops in Advanced Musicality at Bramshaw Tango (which I would love to attend one day), and this brilliantly clear and effective chart of tango orchestras through time.

"Steve has always been an inspiration to me because of the strength, passion and generosity in his tango heart, the wide range and quality of the tango events that he runs with his wonderful wife Debbie, and the musical genius that he brings to the British tango page", SallyCat writes in her blog.

MILONGA UNO! THE PARTY MILONGA

Milonga Uno happens every 2nd Friday of the month, 8pm - midnight.

There is so much choice for dancing argentine tango socially these days if you are a confident dancer. For the last few years we have observed beginners and recent beginners try a milonga or tea dance once or twice and then give up. The problem is the seniors in the dance community are getting better and better but from a beginners' perspective 'better and better' is perceived as  'intimidating and exclusive'.

A dancer who was a regular tango dancer 7 years ago, dropped in recently to say hello and commented on how much the scene had changed, saying "You know Steve, it's not as much fun as it used to be". That got me thinking.....

Milonga Uno is designed to be fun. It is not in any way a traditional milonga - we offer this format on other nights, as do most other organisers. Milonga Uno is for people who enjoy dancing, having fun and going out for a great social evening. The music is skillfully mixed by Steve to include some real gems of Argentine tango, vals and milonga, but more than 70% of the playlist will be alternative, modern music that tango dancers can connect rhythmically to. MILONGA UNO SOUNDS

There are no tandas (a collection of 3 or 4 tracks followed by a cortina). Music is played track by track to encourage dancers to dance one track at a time instead of adhering to the 'finish the tanda whatever happens rule'. Its a party, not a trial by jury!

With this eclectic, esoteric mix of music, you are likely to hear some tracks that you don't want to dance to. Take a seat and socialise, the next track is less than 4 minutes away.

Hot and cold drinks and snacks are provided and the fun starts at 8pm and goes on until midnight. If you are getting a little bored by your dance, or are a tango newbie who wants to gain confidence while having fun, or if you simply love to dance, Milonga Uno is perfect for you.

Tango UK dance studio, Bramshaw SO43 7JE. 7 8pm - midnight every 2nd Friday of the month.
