TLC's 18th Anniversary Milonga and film

11 Nov 2018


Our SUNDAY milongas have been hugely popular with a very friendly ambience and gorgeous music, both contributing to create a wonderful party vibe.

This will be the last TLC Milonga of this year, but have WE got something EXTRA SPECIAL for YOU!

We are celebrating 18 years of TLC Tango in Southampton, and as part of Southampton's Film Week, we will be showing a fabulous documentary about Tango life in Buenos Aires - which actually features Jill Barrett and Ricardo Vidort dancing at TLC, when we were at Archers, in August 2004 !!!

Tango Your Life is the story by director Chan Park who lived and breathed Tango in BA. Through the stories told by dancers who have been dancing as many as 70 years as well the impressions of those who have come to Buenos Aires to experience the dance in its native country, the experience of tango is shown to be one of danced emotion - inspired by music and shared between partners connected through embrace. In intimate and emotional conversations with the director, people explain that tango, transcending social crises and personal conflict, provides them with a safe haven where they can transform to be completely present, letting go of ego, enjoying calmness in body and mind, expressing their passion, sharing their emotions with trustful dance partners in a respectful manner, and accumulating satisfying moments, while dancing.

There are only 25 spaces available to watch the film on the stage - please PM Tracie to book the hottest seat in town!
