Practica “X” in SoHo

Practica X“: the informal guided social dance practice where the real learning begins. Before venturing into the Milonga , dancers need to hone their skills for many hours, and learn the culture, codes and etiquette of tango. Once we have achieved competence at the level of “Bailerin” we can enter the milonga without fear or hesitation. This is the function of the practica.

Sidewalktango holds Practica “X” at Xavier Hall Soho, every 2nd, 3rd and 4th Friday from 9.00pm onwards. Attendance by Bookings in Advance please.
