What is the Tango Underground?

Social tango without the traditions; Neolongas, featuring modern music from many different and unexpected genres; fun and inclusive dancing in a friendly atmosphere.

Tango is a creative dance style that works with a wide range of music, so why shackle it to traditional music and stuffy milongas full of rules and regulations? TangoSynthesis X-Tango Neolongas are all about opening your tango to new and exciting musical influences, from modern electro-nuevo reworkings of favourite tango themes, to tracks of every possible genre from around the world.

With music from as wide a range as this, some of what we play will be perfectly suited to other dance styles as well as tango. But whilst some traditional venues would frown on you dancing blues or slow jive to one of their tracks, we actively encourage it. Just find a spot in the centre of the ronda (tango dancers tend to progress anti-clockwise around the edge of the room, so there is usually a gap in the middle) and dance however you like. All we ask is that you keep an eye on what is going on around you, as static dancers can sometimes forget that other dance styles involve movement around the floor.
