Come and dance on our vintage, sprung maple dance floor
We agree with Carlos Gavito when he said:
good dancer is one who listens to the music. We dance the music not the
steps. Anyone who aspires to dance never thinks about what he is going
to do. What he cares about is that he follows the music. You see, we
are painters. We paint the music with our feet.”
We invite you to come and paint the dance floor with us

and be a part of the tango underground with Tango Stoke. We are delighted
to invite you for another night of carefree social alternative dancing.
The evening consists of two tango DJs playing a huge variety of
non-tango music for you to dance tango to. There will be music from all sorts
of times, places, backgrounds and styles. All of it suitable for
carefree social tango dancing; none of it composed with tango in mind.
will be no tandas, no cortinas, no traditional tango music, no modern
tango music and no cabaceo. Dance with who you like, for as much or as
little as you like, eat, drink, laugh, dance and have a good time. What
an excellent way to start your weekend!

Candi's Charity Thing
Friday March 31st
a warm friendly atmosphere to dance in, and an imaginative blend
of traditional music presented in tanda/cortina format, Stokie's
Milonga at Tango Stoke is a lovely way to press the pause button on the pressures of life,
and escape into a bubble for a few hours.
At our traditional milongas there will always be a heavy emphasis on
traditional music (95%+), along with a traditional structure. Expect
tandas, and cortinas to flow in a TTVTTM format.

a fantastic afternoon of generous dancing, we are happy to report that
£1,000 was raised. This was the final amount needed to bring Candi
to her £5,000 goal!
With 100% of
the profit from the milonga going towards feeding very
marginalised children. And with an exchange rate currently at 17 Namibian
dollars to £1, the monies raised should feed every child in every one of The Six Village Schools in
the Nyae Nyae conservancy in Namibia for a YEAR
Thank you all for your generous support.
