Review: Tango at the Welsh23rd January 2010?
Tango At The Welsh" .
Which leaves us with an extra Tango venue in Central London on a Friday night, which is good :)
Unlike the other venuus, Tango at the Welsh is an early-evening affair - the class is 6:30 - 7:30pm, and the milonga is 7:30 - 10:30pm.
I arrived late, so some of this review is extrapolated. Or, "made up" if you prefer...
The organisers are extremely friendly and approachable.
Numbers were very even - possibly more men than women. So if you're a woman and want a dance, this is a good choice.
This is not really a "milonga evening" - but it is is a great venue for going to learn, getting started, practicing, and having an early-evening tango session. I suspect that many of the regulars use it as a "warn-up" session before going on to Carablanca or Negracha's, but there's nothing wrong with that - in fact, that's what I did myself, and this makes for a great full evening out. Conceivably, you could dance from 7:30pm - 3am if you went to herem then Negracha's after.
So, great as a "warmup", or an early evening session, but not so much as a full evening out.
