This could be an adios, but we hope to turn it into a hasta pronto!
We have curated this event to create a beautiful and relaxed environment for people to enjoy Argentine culture in all its complexity
WHAT IS THE IDEA?
By having a free beginners' tango lesson followed by live tango music and dancing in an atmospheric restaurant, we successfully achieved to:
attract new people to dancing,
allow dancers to try the many teachers and dance schools available in Brisbane,
help teachers to attract more students,
unite the community in an environment made for socialisation not just dancing,
support musicians and provide a platform to learn and practice tango music in a continuously evolving manner,
support local businesses by bringing more people out to dine and experience the vibrant nightlife in Brisbane.
HOW IS IT FREE?
Evita's management has been generous in providing the venue and the musicians, allowing our community to enjoy this evening for FREE. Moonlight Tango's volunteers give their time to manage the event and promote the venue; we also provide support during the night, distribute flyers, manage teachers, curate the sound, and create media assets. A lot happens behind the scenes for this event to be successful and remain FREE to all.
Moving forward, Evita needs a larger contribution to this event which means more people coming and more people trying the delicious food and drinks.
We can only keep enjoying this beautiful evening with YOUR support
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
The event is free and no one should feel obliged to buy food and drinks to participate. A lot of what you experience at Tango Nights has sparked through passion and being free is a key feature of this series of events. However, the musicians and the venue still need to be paid. Buying food and drinks is the easiest way to support this event and keep it free. To facilitate you being able to find the right combo to compliment the night of dancing, Evita has designed a special 'tango' menu which is now available. You can also buy some entrees a la carte, wine and drinks. Please, consider contributing by purchasing what you can. Keep in mind that the ticket to a milonga without live music, high quality sound system and a bar is on average $15!
Tell your dancing & non-dancing friends to come along for dinner and to watch the dancing and appreciate the live music.
Spread the news about this beautiful event via social media, post photos and re-share our content with colleagues, friends and family.

Your help is needed NOW, so join us next Wednesday 02|11 at Evita with free beginners tango lesson starting at 17:30 and live music starting at 18:30. Make sure you book a table for dinner by contacting the venue.
WHAT HAVE WE ACHIEVED SO FAR?
All our efforts are already paying off with tens of new dancers joining us and musicians getting more and more involved in the community. By allowing this event to remain free, we are all contributing to promoting tango and boosting cultural diversity in Brisbane. Additionally, we can enjoy live music, dancing and great food like nowhere else!
THIS IS SUCCESS!
We are sure that Tango Nights have been a unique experience for the seasoned dancers, beginners and non-dancers as you can dine, drink and dance to live music in a format not available in any other Milonga in Brisbane. Help us to keep it going and it keep it free.
