All posts for the month July, 2018

This year’s summer party will be a masquerade party. Our guest teacher will be Damian Welch Traveres and the DJ for the evening will be our very own Luke Stephenson
We will start the night off by having a bachatango lesson for all levels from 7pm until 8.30pm, then party until either our feet fall off or 12pm, whichever happens first.
The party is fancy dress, although it’s not obligatory, the theme is a masquerade ball. So please come in your fanciest and most elaborate costumes and masks.
Tickets cost £5 for lesson and party.
