My Tango Travels
I spent 4 days in Madrid, checking out Tango and Salsa venues as well as some teaching on June 8th 2013. Six hours in total for a group of 14 people.
There are some nice venues for Tango. On Friday I went to a dance studio in Calle Jacometreza, near to M Callao. Beautiful wood floor with one wall mirrored. It cost £7 with a drink a finished around 12am. There were some friendly dancers and not many Nuevo dancers. A mature crowd, very sociable. On Saturday I went to Calle Nunez de Arce for Guadalavaca Tango night. It was a lovely venue on the first floor, Not to big and I wa .unlucky as it was a quite night. I decided to walk down to the Way Hostel in Calle Carretas. They have a small Milonga that runs from 12-4am for the hardy dancers. Good music.
Sunday was the hightlight. I went to Cha3 at Plaza San Pol de Mar. A lovely smart venue, good dance floor, Milonguero style. The atmosphere was really good. I got introduced to an 86 year old man who was a lovely dancer and very complimentary to me. I met a charming Spanish dance school owner who wants me to do some work for her in the next few months…we shall see
