Stokie's Alt Tango Weekender: November 25th-27th

A full weekend dedicated to nothing but the very best in Alternative Tango. Expect top tuition through the day, great food, comfortable rooms, and fantastic DJs through the evening into the wee small hours.
Stokie's will throw open the doors on Friday and we'll be dancing, socialising and learning right through until Sunday.
---
At Stokie's Alt Tango Weekender there will be two SEPARATE learning streams:
▓1.▓FAST TRACK TANGO▓▓
A Fast Track into Tango for people who have little or no Tango experience (generally less than 12 months). The Fast Track classes will allow you to join in the freestyle dancing in the evenings, and by the end of the weekend your Tango will be coming along leaps and bounds - places for the Fast Track stream of classes are strictly limited and balanced (lead/follow) for maximum learning potential.
---
▓2.▓TANGO COMPETENTE▓▓
Running alongside the Fast Track stream will be the more advanced learning stream for more proficient Tango dancers.
Stokie's are delighted to announce that you'll get you to see Tango from a whole new perspective! Places for the Tango Competente stream of classes are being balanced (lead/follow) for maximum learning potential.
---
▓▓ALT TANGO MUSIC▓▓
Many people love dancing Tango to non-traditional Tango music. At Stokie's we feel that any music that isn't traditional Tango music is an 'alternative' to what you would hear at a traditional milonga.
The music played at the weekender will be world music, nuevo, electro and modern Tango, all structured with you as a Tango dancer in mind. There will be no tandas, no cortinas, just a huge variety of superb music that will inspire you to dance.

If you also adore traditional Tango music, Stokie's has a Tango & Blues weekender planned for the last weekend in August!
---
▓▓THE MILONGAS▓▓
Every evening there will be a top quality Alt Tango milonga through to the wee small hours. These milongas will consist of some of the country's most experienced Alt Tango DJs playing incredible music for you to dance to, on one of the very best dance-floors in Europe.
---
▓▓THE HOTEL▓▓
This weekender is FULL BOARD! It takes place in the intimate environment of a friendly small hotel in the East Midlands. Due to the layout of the hotel you can arrive on Friday and stay in your dance shoes until Sunday - perfect.
The hotel has really friendly staff and has recently been extensively updated. It benefits from an excellent chef, with food being prepared on-site, meaning the hotel is able to accommodate most special diary requirements (please notify Stokie's in advance).
Kegworth Hotel is about two miles from East Midlands Parkway railway station, it's also on a 24 hour bus route with easy access from Nottingham and Derby! Finally it's only three miles from East Midlands International Airport! Kegworth Hotel is very well located, however you choose to travel.
---
▓▓BOOKING▓▓
Places currently available for leads, and balanced lead/follow couples.

Stokie's Quarterly Blues Parties:

When it comes to blues nights we like to keep the formula simple. Fantastic music, friendly crowd, lovely sprung wooden floor and an atmosphere that is out of this world. You may end up wondering where the night vanished to as DJ Stokie plays hours of the finest tunes to seduce your ears and make your feet beg you to dance. If a laid back atmosphere, a unique blend of music, friendly dancers and a late finish sounds like your type of a night, then have we got a treat for you.

We have a sprung maple dance floor, free parking, friendly dancers from all over the UK, a laid-back, relaxed, party atmosphere that is like no other. There is no licensed bar, but a small selection of soft drinks, fresh tea and coffee is on sale through the night, and you are most welcome to bring your own drinks if you wish.

Door Cost: £10 before 9:30pm, £12 after 9:30pm
Start Time: 8pm
End Time: LATE!
