Excellent Venue and floor

Opened in 1929 by the Duke of York, initially as public baths, York Hall is a beautiful neo-Georgian grade II listed building.

York Hall provides the biggest sprung oak floor without pillars in London.

The main hall alone provides over 550m2 of floorspace, with ample space for seating, socialising and dancing.

DJ: Marcelo Rojas La 2x4 logo

Marcelo Rojas is the DJ of «La 2x4», the Tango Radio of Buenos Aires and has over 20 years of experience. The dance floor will not be missing the "Fantastic 4": D'Arienzo, Di Sarli, Pugliese and Troilo.
Marcelo will be playing a selection of great tangos for about 3½ hours, before, between and after the 2 sets of the live concert.

High-end professional sound

We consider sound quality as perhaps the most important factor in such an event.

We have, therefore, employed the services of an industry leader in professional concert sound systems with experience in organising some of the biggest concerts in the country.

Intelligent sound management

The chosen high-end sound system is a state-of-the-art intelligent array using automated optimisation to deliver the high quality of sound on the dancefloor while at the site time delivering a clear, high quality sound at the balcony above, with minimum interference from the dancefloor below.

The sound system will be managed and continually reconfigured as necessary by professional sound engineers to ensure the highest possible sound quality.

The venue runs a fully-licensed bar which serves food, wine and spirits.

About the Event

This will be a unique experience for tango addicts who love dancing to the music of Juan D'Arienzo but also a new experience for the general audience, who will be immersed in an astounding audio and visual experience – seated at balcony level and able to enjoy the performance of the orchestra whilst also watching from above hundreds of dancers dancing the Argentine Tango in the dance floor below.

About the Orchestra

La Juan D'Arienzo Tango Orchestra comprises an exciting new generation of tango musicians and was formed in 2012 with the aim of keeping alive the unmistakable style of the composer Juan D'Arienzo.

It is also the only tango orchestra which owns the original scores of Juan D'Arienzo (through his grandson, the leader of Orquesta Tipica La Juan D'Arienzo) and which stays true to the Juan D'Arienzo style.

Organiser: Tangueando

About the Organiser

Tangueando is an Argentine Tango Dance School and events organiser based in Cambridge.

Our goal is to spread knowledge and understanding of Argentine Tango and the culture behind it, so that its rich cultural heritage can be better understood. In this way, through the music and dance of Tango, we hope to build a cultural bridge between the UK and Argentina and connect with each-other within the tango embrace.
