Negracha at Wild Court closes after 14 years – End of era for Tango in London
The era of Negracha at 4 Wild Court, Holborn, has finally come to an end. The local milonga has been the go-to place to dance tango in London on Friday nights for some 14 years, presenting performances by world renowned tango artists, orchestras and DJ’s until the early hours of the morning.
4 Wild Court has been the home of social dance nights, classes and other theatrical activities for many years and those who dance can easily say they took their first steps on those old worn-out floor boards dancing jive, swing, salsa and tango amongst others.
Rumour has it that the building will be torn down and replaced by a shiny new hotel… A pity for tango.. A pity for the dance community.. A pity for London..
Negracha will continue to run at different locations around the city until a more permanent home is found and we wish Ivan Arandia and the team all the best in finding a new address for London’s much-loved Friday night milonga.
Shall we take a final walk through the doors of Negracha at Wild Court? Thanks to Anthony Lee for the video memory!
