Chester Green (Derby) Practica

The Green Tea Practica has now changed its name to Chester Green (Derby) Practica” .  Cidinha and Njaal have passed on the mantel to Nas and I so we have changed the name of this regular event.

We are still at the same venue (Chester Green Community Centre) and the practica will continue to be held on the first and third Sunday of each month, but with a  new start time from January 2016 – 4.00 to 7.00 pm.  So nothing has really changed.

We plan to arrange occasional workshops for people who support the practica, but we’ll let you know more about this soon so watch the website at Derby Tango or the Face Book group Tango in Derby or page, Derby Tango.

The first practica under the new name will be held on 1 November when we have a guest who has offered to provide the music; this will be a great change for everyone.

There will also be a surprise for you but we’ll let you know more about this very soon……………

Nas and I look forward to the first practica under the new name on Sunday, 1 November – see you all there x

Luna y Molino – Regular Venue for the Monthly Milonga

Bramcote Memorial Hall

Luna y Molino (Tango Gardens) now have a regular venue for their milongas, Bramcote Memorial Hall, Church Street, Bramcote Village, Nottinghamshire, NG9 3HD (just off the A52 between Derby and Nottingham). It’s a lovely venue with plenty of room for dancing, free parking and great music (mainly traditional music with some tandas of Nuveo).  Cidinha and Njaal usually hold these milongas every second Saturday of each month, but you can find more information about their events on their website.

Cidinha and Njaal offer the opportunity for private lessons prior to the milonga on a Saturday afternoon – contact them direct for their fees.  It’s a brilliant opportunity for ladies to experience a teacher who appreciates the difficulties experienced by us ladies and can teach the skills required to become excellent followers; which I am aware men really do appreciate – even if they don’t say it often enough.

Their first milonga for 2015 is on 10 January – so don’t miss it; put it in your diary with a reminder!!

You can even link their the calendar on their website – especially if you use Google – it’s so easy!
