Carablanca is London’s longest-running tango club and takes place on Fridays. The friendly, informal atmosphere ensures that beginners and visitors mix easily with the regular dancers. The dance evening is an Argentine milonga. Music is traditional Argentine tango, milonga and vals, played in tandas with cortinas by guest DJs.
The venue, Conway Hall, is a 1920s period building in Central London. The main hall has a large wooden floor – ideal for dancing – and the bar is excellent value, with a wide choice of drinks and splendid cocktails.
Every week there is a different guest DJ from the UK or further afield. Check the Carablanca website for details.
Classes take place in a separate room from the milonga. They are taught at two levels:
The Beginners tango course, which starts on the first Friday of the month, is for those with no knowledge of tango.
The Recent Beginners course assumes knowledge of the Beginners tango course.
