El Quinto August 2015 Picture: Thomas Mayer
We hope to create an event where people come together for social dancing, relaxation and enjoyment of an afternoon of predominantly Golden Age tango. Guest DJ’s will continue to be carefully selected to each of the events in order to bring you the orchestras that we love. We invite DJ’s who share our love of traditional Argentine tango and we only invite DJ’s that we have personally had the pleasure of listening and dancing to. Following the success of El Quinto over the last 4 years we have 4 dates for 2017.
El Quinto has become a popular and busy milonga, below are a few house keeping rules:-
Tango etiquette in the form of mirada/cabaceo is expected as is respectful floor craft. If you are new to tango or struggle to dance in small spaces please practice and feel confident before you join the floor. Please keep your line of dance, don’t overtake or undertake and please move forward if there is space to keep the flow of the floor moving. It is also etiquette that before joining a busy floor to catch the eye of the couple already dancing before joining in. Feel free to enjoy the dance space and thank you for helping to create a beautiful ronda. We have created easy to follow guides that are placed on tables to support those that are not familiar with tango floor craft etiquette, please read and follow the guidance if you are unsure.
