After each lesson you’ll have the change to practice in the practica (15 min) before the intermediate/advance course starts.

You don’t need to bring a partner.

There will be tea and coffee.

The DOUBLE BILL Milongas – Bärbel’s Birthday Party | Kington Langley

Oct 11th, 2017 by Bärbel | Comments Off

Magic Roundabout Double Bill Milongas | Kington Langley

The 25th November is a special day for us. It’s our last Magic Roundabout Milonga for 2017. It’s also our last Double Bill Milonga on a Saturday, next year we will be making some changes which we will announce soon. It’s not just tango, it’s most of all my birthday!

For those of you thinking Paul is some kind of tyrannical monster making me (Bärbel) work on my birthday I should point out that Paul did suggest getting a guest DJ so I could have the day off. But nothing makes me happier than playing music for you to dance to. So then he suggested that I play both sets so he could have the day off. But I want to dance too. Hey, it’s my birthday!

So as if Paul hasn’t done enough already he is going to throw in something else. The Double Bill Double Bubble! Pay for the afternoon Double Bill Milonga and get the evening free! Yes folks, that’s 8 hours dancing for 10 quid!! With a meal in the middle. And cake, naturally.

So how do you get this offer? Say that you are going on our facebook event before 18th November. That’s it!

Road closures in Hereford – 2017

Sep 27th, 2017 by Bärbel | Comments Off

Recently there have been a lot of road closures in and around Hereford and Herefordshire. On some Mondays the travel to and from the Monday tango classes in Hereford at the Breinton Village Hall has been a challenge.

Thanks for joining the classes so regularly despite the road closures!

The Argentine tango classes with Bärbel Rücker in Hereford will start again on Monday 9th October 2017. If you are living North of Hereford you definitely wanna know about this upcoming road closure on Monday 9th October 2017.

I have collected links and information for you to make your journey to my tango classes as easy as possible. A special thank you to Jane D. for providing me with the information about the closure in the the first place!

Looking forward to see you all on Monday 9th October 2017!

Information by Jane D., Hereford:

On 9th October 2017 from 6p.m. to 1 a.m., access to A438 from Whitecross roundabout will not be possible. Those driving to Breinton village hall from town will need to find an alternative route.

Huntington Lane itself is NOT closed, but may be unusually busy as part of a diversion.

Googling the hall and a map will show access to the hall via the road opposite Rylands Street. This takes a direct route past Welsh Water works and the cemetery.

Below is a map of the affected road to give an overview for those planning journeys. Roadworks’ planned end: Fri, 13th.
