Milonga Abierta with DJ John Miller: Saturday 6th October 2018

Milonga Abierta is the Learning Tango style of milonga, on every First Saturday of the month. We have an "open" approach; open to new dancers, open to new music, and open to new ideas.

8pm - Midnight, Apsley Community Centre, London Road, Apsley, Hemel Hempstead, Herts HP3 9SB. (directions).

Milonga Abierta is the ideal milonga for those who want to enjoy a perfect mix of gorgeous Golden Age traditional music, mixed in with the best of Neo and Alternative tango tracks throughout the evening.

We also have a lovely line up of live music, guest DJs and guest workshop teachers for these events - see Future Dates for details.

DJ John Miller

We're very happy to have John Miller taking on DJ honours for our October event, with a selection of mixed traditional and nuevo tracks.

John is a highly-experienced DJ, with over 20 years' experience in the dance scene, and those of you who attended the Summer Ball in June will remember how he attracted a loyal crowd for his Nuevo set in the Tango Cafe room.

John and Karen Miller run the popular Jive / Tango and Tango Y Mas events in Bookham.

We're very happy to welcome John to take on the Milonga Abierta evening!
