Last months Valentines Day Milonga was well attended with 36 dancers with visitors from Jacksonville, Orlando and Pennsylvania! Lots of people stayed late dancing until the end!
8:00 to 9:00 Beginners Milonga (Experienced dancers welcome! 30 minute beginners lesson + 15 minutes dancing rotating partners after every song + 15 minutes or two tandas of easy Tango with lights dimmed where we want to be sure to get all the beginners out on the floor with experienced dancers.)
9:00 to 12:00 Regular Tandas (Beginners encouraged to stay and dance and socialize and be exposed to the different orchestras and styles of Tango, Vals and Milonga music!)
What is a Beginners Milonga?
A 30 minute lesson followed by dancing for new tango dancers.
This is for people who have had at least one lesson already.
If you are taking beginner lessons in Argentine Tango, this is for you.
This is an opportunity to enjoy a real Argentine Tango Milonga (dance social). Put what you are learning to use in a welcoming atmosphere arranged to make new tango dancers feel comfortable.
Beginners are encouraged to stay after the Beginner’s Milonga to dance, hang out, watch and listen to music and meet new friends.
Experienced dancers are welcome at the Beginner’s Milonga.
Do not tell your partner what to do during the Beginner’s Milonga.
If you have trouble, ask the instructor for help, otherwise figure it out yourself.
Only ask your partner to do something if you are uncomfortable, not if you or they are confused.
