What is an Argentine Tango practica? It is the place to grow and speed up your dancing skills outside the class or a Milonga setting. They were established since 1920s (called sometimes academias) and became very popular in the Tangos Golden Era. How to define a Practica and its benefits A tango experience between a lesson and a milonga (social dance). The practica itself is considerably more casual than the traditional milongas with a relaxed atmosphere. Open to all skill levels. Everyone is welcome. The practica also gives you an opportunity to meet other dancers. A supportive and friendly place to learn, ask for advice from a peer dancer or from the instructor(s) or just to workout your own moves. For experienced dancers is a place to practice the skills you already have and develop further your dancing. The class usually will be orientated to give participantes tools that can use for the floor navigation, dynamics and special footwork. Unlike a milonga, it is okay to stop and discuss what is and isnt working to the limits of your partner. Venue : The Dome 2A Dartmouth Park Hill, London NW5 1HL Google Map What to wear?
