Sari & Jeff started Glasgow's first ever Practica in 2005. This social tango event has been running on Saturdays ever since. Over the years our event has always been a popular and an important part of the Glasgow scene. It is suitable for all dancers who have previous tango experience. As an informal social dance event it offers the opportunity both for practicing and dancing socially to prepare yourself for the more formal context of the milonga.
The music at the practica is played in tandas (4 songs by the same orchestra or in the same style) but without cortinas, the short interludes of non-tango music which are used to clear the dance floor and indicate a possibility for a change of partners.
Jeff is our resident DJ though we may occasionally have a guest DJ as well.
All styles of social tango are welcome to be danced at the Saturday Social as long as everyone knows and respects good floor craft skills. We encourage the use cabeceo, though more informal verbal invitations are also common practice at this event.
If you have not danced tango before please join our beginner’s classes to learn the basics. If you would prefer a more individual approach you can also learn the basics through private tuition.
Once you are familiar with the principles of tango posture, connection and walking technique you are welcome join the 1.30-2.30pm tuition sessions and the Saturday Social - Practica.
