THE reigning champions of Argentine Tango are set to come to the city.

Alexandra Baldaque and Fernando Jorge will be coming to MK Tango workshops at Shenley Church End on Sunday, December 4.

The pair, who were finalists in the recent world Championships in Buenos Aires, will also perform a demonstration as part of the tango milonga (social dance) held at Ortaga, a tapas bar in the Theatre District.

MK Tange organiser Andy Allwood said: “MK Tango holds a milonga at Ortega every month but this one is special.

“This is an amazing opportunity for dancers in Milton Keynes to see two of Europe’s top performance artists. Dancers like this set the standard which TV shows like try to reach. If you like watching the professional dancers try Argentine Tango on Strictly Come Dancing you won’t want to miss it.”

ORTEGA manager Yohanna added: We love holding the milongas because authentic tango creates such a special atmosphere, but it means that there is only limited availability for the public because we have to take out half of our tables to create the dance floor.”

Availability on the night will be very limited so advance booking is essential. To book a table call Ortega on 01908 674322.
