Alphington village hall is great location, with two large halls, so we will dance and play music in both to ensure plenty of space to everyone

Guidelines
We will offer a tango class before the practica for those who feel a bit rusty !

- Book with a partner you will dance with , (what about rule of 6?**
- Social distance between couples, Please respect others.
- Wear MASK as much as you can, like in restaurant or supermarket, please wear a mask to access, and when you are near others outside your group of 6. For dancing, you might chose not to wear it as it might affect your breathing.
- Bring your own drink/snack, to be on the safe side we won’t be able to offer our usual snack/ drink. There is off license Spar shop next to Village hall
- There will be sanitiser, but fell free to bring your own it would help,
- Wash your hand often
- Clothes, we will keep the room ventilated/open some windows
- Track and trace in Place

(**) Further reading and interpretation about the rule of 6, despite it is allow to meet with up to 6 people indoor, it is also advice to try to reduce close contact with them. So at the moment to be on the save side as organizer, i will offer only to dance with your partner that you book with.

Our thoughts
It has been a year since our last milonga (crazy) and now, embracing the current times, we will offer an online edition.

We all know that the milonga is place where we dance and socialise, meet and make friends… while meeting in a venue is not possible, still we could enjoy some of the other aspect, chat socialise listen to music and maybe some of us dance a bit, all from your home.

The Dj will play music, (suggestion are welcome) in tandas of 3 and cortinas, like in the milonga, and zoom offers the option to chat, see each other, while listen to good quality sound music.

You just need a computer or a tablet or phone and access to internet.
