About El Abrazo Milonga

Temporary cancelation

Due to the fire at the Glasgow School of Art Mac building the CCA is not presently accessible. It is hoped that the CCA will re-open during the October.

We hope the El Abrazo Milonga will be back in October.


The Centre for Contemporary Arts is one of the cultural hubs in the Glaswegian art scene. We have been organising our monthly milonga at the CCA since 2007. We dance in the Clubroom which has a wonderful wooden floor for enjoyable social dancing. Music in this milonga is 100% traditional tango, tango vals & milonga played in tandas with cortinas. We expect good floor-craft and promote the use of mirada and cabeceo.

Refreshments including alcoholic drinks can be bought from the bar down stairs and brought upstairs to the Clubroom.

From time to time before the milonga we will also host special events. They range from beginner's taster sessions to Guided Practicas, presentations or discussions suitable to all levels of dancers.
