Saturday 24 December,  NO CLASSES and NO PRACTICA TODAY! Peter is running the next Saturday Práctica on the 31st.

Classes will resume with Gloria and Graham from Christchurch hosted by Tango Lessons Wellington on 21 and 22 January.

4:30 to 7:00 PM ALMOST every Saturday is the Saturday Práctica.

The Saturday Práctica has been an institution since 2000. A relaxed space where everyone can practice their tango, walking, technique, ask questions of others, or simply have a dance. People of all levels and styles of tango are welcome. Music is mostly but not exclusively traditional tangos, milonga, and vals. The Práctica forms an important stepping stone for integrating new things learnt in classes into your instinctive dance. This keeps the milongas purely for enjoyment.

Classes are $15, but int/adv dancers are invited to help the students in the fundamentals class for free. Práctica is $8 or $5 if you do a class on that day.

The venue is upstairs in Studio 2 at 22 Webb Street - to the left at the top of Cuba Street, Wellington, New Zealand. 0274 882 646
