The Magic Roundabout presents The SUNDAY SERVICE ✮ Grand Opening Milonga with DJ Mabel Gomez ✮ Tango class with Bärbel Rücker

The Magic Roundabout - The SundayService OPENING - DJ Mabel

The Magic Roundabout presents ‘The Sunday Service’ ~ Watney Hall, Lydney

The first of our new series of Sunday afternoon milongas begins on Sunday 20th September 2015 with special guest DJ Mabel Gomez.

Mabel’s deep appreciation for traditional tango music inspires and influences her choice of tandas from the Golden Age and from the Guardia Vieja when appropriate.

Her aim is to share with the dancers moments of enjoyable music that evokes an ardent feeling to dance and a pleasure to listen to.

It’s also the first Magic Roundabout at Watney Hall in Lydney, part of the newly refurbished 3 Hill Street, the old British Legion club.

The event space has a great dancefloor, while downstairs there is the main bar where you can order drinks and Sunday lunch (it is essential to book in advance for food!)


Between 12-1pm there will be a Argentine Tango class with Bärbel Rücker

If you are interested in Private Lessons with Bärbel Rücker | Tanzbar, there is the possibility of 45 min lessons between 1-3pm. More information on Private Lessons. Please email to arrange your private lesson(s).

The 1 hour workshop is designed for everyone who has taken their first tango steps (even a long time ago), and wants to feel more comfortable on a crowded dance floor. We will focus on our awareness, quality of dancing and adjusting the repertoire to a small space. Please bring thick socks or gym shoes! You don’t need a partner.
Teacher Bärbel Rücker has danced tango for 17 years and taught it for 15. Her approach is clear and direct. Check out what other people think about her teaching.
