Derby Practica in Spondon


It’s been a long time since I had time to add to this blog; I’ve been very busy with Nas organising events and doing a bit of DJing!!  

It’s now been nearly a year since we moved to Spondon Village Hall and it’s proved to be a great success.  The hall has a fabulous wooden floor and is a really good size; the practicas have gone from strength to strength with approximately 30 people joining us at each event.

Usually on the first Sunday of the month we run a workshop on a variety of topics – the instructors vary but we make sure we provide value for money for the group.  Our regular teachers, Pauline and Geoff Hudson (Tango Stafford), have been a great source of information throughout 2016 but at the moment they are off doing other things.

Donnata and Jeronimo joined us again from Spain during the Christmas period and ran a fabulous workshop for us; and also gave some private lessons.  We hope to invite them to return during the Summer period – watch this space!!


A video of their dancing can be seen here  on Face Bookdonna-and-jeronemo-pic





The Derby Practicas are held twice a month; always the first and third Sunday of every Month.


Usual Music Style

  • First Sunday – mainly Golden Age
  • Third Sunday  – Nuevo, Neo and nontraditional (Provided by Andy)

Something for all music tastes – as usual people bring nibbles to share with everyone so there’s always a good feast!!

We welcome new people no matter where you are on your tango journey – come along and practise what you’ve learned in your regular lessons – there’s always something new to learn!!  And you don’t need to bring a partner with you x
