Four years ago I became a part of the Magic Roundabout Milongas team. Since then there have been Magic Roundabout (MR) Milongas in Bristol (Almondsbury), Tidenham Chase, Kington Langley and Lydney.
In 2018 I am looking forward to teach the FREE Tango Practica before the Sunday Service Milongas in Lydney and to DJ on different occasions too!

The Magic Roundabout Milongas
The Magic Roundabout Milongas organises Argentine tango dance events for people who like traditional tango music.
If you enjoy dancing to music from the Golden Age of Tango in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, then you will like The Magic Roundabout Milongas.
We believe that the details make a difference to your dance experience. We have sprung wooden dance floors, excellent sound, cabeceo friendly lighting, experienced DJs, free tea and coffee and free parking.
