Public milonga for Argentine Tango dancers in Gainesville, North and Central Florida, USA, surrounding areas and national and international visitors.
Last month we had about 35 excellent dancers with lots of new visitors from Jacksonville, Durham, Tampa, Ocala, Orlando, Atlanta. We had many compliments about the venue, seating, lighting, good wood floor, good a/c, good dance level and floor craft, great vibe, the superb music from famous DJ Angel Montero from Atlanta and the wonderful dancers he brought with him from Atlanta.
This month our Special Guest DJ is the fabulous DJ and teacher, Andrea Pham from Gainesville, FL. Andrea got seriously into Argentine Tango in 2001 during a trip to Buenos Aires where she has returned many times since then. She travels frequently to Europe (Paris, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Berlin, Nijmegen) and as far south as New Zealand to dance. She teaches at her own tango academy here in Gainesville, Tango Papirusa and has taught and DJ’d in the US, Canada, Vietnam and the Netherlands.
Most of the good dancers on the floor here at Milonga El Abrazo de Gainesville have studied with Andrea in her studio, Tango Papirusa.
Be sure to experience the Tango, “Andrea style” and hear her exquisite taste in music that will inspire you to dance passionately all night long.
We hope to see you all again at the next milonga on Saturday, DEC. 14, 2013 8:00 p.m. – midnight!
Cost: $10.00, BYO DRINKS, WATER and LOTS of SNACKS for 4 HOURS of hard dancing all night. No breaks or announcements, just continuous passionate dancing.
