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
▓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.
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!
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.
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.
Places currently available for leads, and balanced lead/follow couples.
