As part of Big Dance 2010, Nordic Nomad Productions and

that combines social dance, local history and a guided audio
walk. Couples will share an MP3 player via two headsets and
an adaptor, and will dance and walk - apparently in silence.
On the MP3 player will be a pre-loaded track with original
tango music and spoken word tracks. This format mimics the
Milonga format, where Tandas (dancing) are interspersed with
Cortinas (literally, 'curtains', breaks in dancing).
Participants will have the opportunity to take part in a
pre-walk Argentine Tango workshop, run by Tango South
London. This ensures that even people who have never danced
the tango before are able to take part. No reservations 
turn up at the hall by the adventure playground 10 minutes
before the start. Please pre-load the audio track from the
website before arrival if possible.
