We’re back!

Well, hello again. What a couple of months it has been! The biggest news is the re-start of our milongas, as the new venue at old Windsor.

The opening night was a real heart-in-mouth moment for us; we had spent days and weeks preparing and doing dress rehearsals too. Sarah spent hours making bespoke bunting in beautiful colours and we created longs chains of fairy lights and rope lights to create a magical atmosphere.

The big unknown for me as the DJ was the quality of the sound once the room was full of people chatting and dancing on top of the dance music. There really is no way to predict how it will go, and I was really nervous – I guess it might have showed. The hall has huge speakers installed, but I chose to supplement them with an array of our own speakers just to give the best possible sound quality. Of course, that also meant miles of audio cables to connect and power cables too. As it turned out it was great, and I needn’t have been concerned about it.

Luckily we never needed to worry about the dance floor. It is absolutely fantastic; silky smooth.

The doors opened and we were amazed at the huge crowd of dancers that arrived; it was unbelievable! We hadn’t dreamt that there would be so many people coming along to support us and celebrate the new venue. The food was gobbled up, and the dance floor was packed all night.

So, that’s it; we are under way again in a great new venue that has happy reviews, and I can’t begin to describe how fantastic that feels.

No peace for the wicked

August is traditionally a quiet month for Tango.  Many lessons pause for the summer, and milongas are often shut for a few weeks too.  For several years now we’ve taken a break for the month, and ironically found ourselves with nowhere to go and dance, because most other Tango organisers were doing the same thing!

But this year it’s different; now that our regular group lesson have stopped, we’ve had more time on our hands, and the pace of life has calmed down.

So, what have we been doing?  Well, strangely, it’s been a pretty busy time, planning and organising for the future events.

Our Monthly milongas have a new home, so there’s a load of preparation needed to design the layout and decoration of the new venue, and get everything ready.

And now that we’ve got St Bernards Convent booked for 4 day events at Christmas and Easter there’s been a flurry of emails to DJs as we try to put together teams for both the events.

So please don’t ask if we’ve had a nice restful summer!

At last!

First of all a huge thank you to everyone who has encouraged, supported, helped, and stood by us for the last few months. It has been amazing how many people have been rooting for us! Finally, we can now share our plans for new Milongas:
Eton Milongas are starting again in September, at a new home; Old Windsor Memorial Hall.
We’ve been holding out for a brand new, sprung, maple dance floor to be laid in the Hall, and it’s going to be installed in August. Once it’s ready, we can get started with new monthly Saturday night Milongas!  Why did we choose Old Windsor? Well, it’s a fantastic hall:
~ It’s really easy to find ~
~ There’s loads of free parking ~
A brand new, sprung, maple dance floor ~
Free Wifi ~
Just 10 minutes away from Eton ~
And a there’s pub over the road ~
Saturday 9th September – Launch Party
Saturday 7th October
Saturday 11th November
(no milonga in December)
then the 1st Saturday of every month in 2018​

The venue is new, and everything else will be what you’ve come to like; the music, the friendly atmosphere, tasty catering, and great floorcraft. We can’t wait to get started and see everyone again! ​
