Announcement: Thursday 12 March 2020

With great reluctance we have decided to postpone our lovely TangoMac Community Practica for the time being in the light of the escalating coronavirus situation. Please share this news with tango friends who may not have heard. We will keep in touch to let you know when we are able to re-open.

Argentine Tango with a Bit of Glasgow Style

Tango Mac is Glasgow’s most popular weekly Argentine Tango event. The Práctica is hosted at Charles Rennie Mackintosh's, Ruchill Kelvinside Parish Church Hall, and offers dancers a concentrated three hours to practise and share tips. Tango Mac is a place to catch-up, blether, meet dancers from across Scotland and enjoy the ambience of the hall.

Pure dead tango!

When and Where?

Saturday afternoons, 2.00-5.00pm. Admission is £5.00 including refreshments and good music. Ruchill Kelvinside Parish Church Hall, 17 Shakespeare St, Glasgow, G20 8TH (please note, this is not the Queen's Cross Church: map at the bottom of the page).

A Community Práctica

This práctica is independent and run by the city's tango community with over 30 volunteers contributing their time. Each week, you will be welcomed by volunteer hosts and djs. They will greet you at the door, keep the tea flowing and lay down some classic tango while you concentrate on your moves. Tango Mac is not for profit and excess funds will be channelled back into the community. Some weeks are charity fund raisers with profits going to national and local worthwhile causes.

Tango Mac has attracted some of Scotland's best DJs, but we also encourage new DJs to put together small sets and try them out. If you are interested in DJ-ing, hosting, or both contact us at Tango Mac.

Dancers and DJs

At Tango Mac the emphasis is bound to be on the tango. Some weeks, however, will have a special focus on vals or milonga. This will give everyone a chance to concentrate on these other dances too. Many dancers come to socialise and that's fine. Nevertheless, Tango Mac is a práctica and for that reason we don't have cortinas: the tango just keeps coming without interruption.

When Tango Mac is Not Enough

Glasgow has a friendly and busy tango scene with a mix of classes, milongas and other prácticas throughout the week. Go to Tango In Glasgow for information about other Argentine tango events locally.
