Many thanks to everyone who came to Negracha Tango Club last Friday for our Student Night Out and Performance.
We were thrilled to perform again at Negracha after so such a long time and it was amazing to see so many of you there to support us.
Our Nights Out are such a great way to cement the friendships we make in class and enhance the sense of community we have at Tango Movement.
The next Night Out is our biggest one: our annual Winter Ball on Saturday 14th November. Tickets will be on sale very shortly.
We’ll leave you with some pictures of our three tango performances at Negracha taken by our wonderful student Natalia Lavrova. And a video of our tango Vals.
Hope to see you on the dance floor soon!
On Sunday 6th September, we will be performing in Angels & Demons with acclaimed septet Tango Siempre and Soprano Ann Liebeck.
Discover the tango masterworks of legendary Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla. In the 1950s, Piazzolla shook up the world of traditional tango with his new style termed 'nuevo tango', incorporating elements from jazz and classical music. Although controversial during his lifetime, he soon became an important musical figure and is now known as one of the world's foremost composers of tango music.
Angels and Demons features Piazzolla's rarely performed vocal tango ballads, plus instrumental works by classic tango masters of the Golden Age of Tango.
The concert also features a guest appearance by baritone Nuno Silva.

We’re proud to present the official video of our Student Show, which took place at the UK Tango Championships in June this year.
Our Students opened the Semi-Finals with a choreography to the music Loca by Juan D’Arienzo.
The students came from our intermediate and advanced groups and the majority had started tango with us as Beginners.
They worked hard in the run-up to the performance to perfect not only their movements but their togetherness with the group - which if you’ve ever tried it, you’ll know is no easy feat!
Our aim had been to show the essence of tango with quality of movement, elegance and musicality. And guys, we’ve got to hand it to you - you had that in spades!
Although a little nervous before going out to perform in front of so many people, the students kept calm and held it together. It was amazing to see them all looking so composed and so glamorous out there!
We were very, very proud of them and can’t WAIT till our next Student Show at our Annual Winter Ball on Saturday 14th November.
