Practicas in Auckland

Practicas are training sessions, where you can improve your tango without worrying about dressing up or following the etiquette that comes with social milongas (though you may wish to practise your navigational skills, to make sure you are not crashing into anyone else or holding up the traffic). Dancers of all levels are welcome, and you may be able to get informal help or advice from others. It's a great opportunity to relax and chat with friends who share your common interest in tango.
