What is a MILONGA?
Milonga is an Argentine Tango social dance. People come as individuals or with a partner. It gives you a great opportunity not only to practice your new moves, but also to meet some nice people.
Argentine Tango Basics
Argentine tango is an improvisational dance based on the four building blocks of walking, turning, stopping and embellishments. The dance is like a puzzle that gets put together differently each time. Women and men bring their own styles and embellishments to the dance which contribute significantly to the excitement and unpredictability of the experience.
Argentine Tango is not the same as Ballroom Tango- it is different from the ballroom tangos in its posture, embrace, improvisation, movement, balance, steps, and music. It's completely different from the top of your head to the bottom of the soles of the shoes you dance it with.
If you have a background in ballroom tango, just think of Argentine tango as a completely new dance-not as an enhancement of the one you already know.
Do I Need a Partner?
You do not need a partner to start learning to dance tango. There are always a variety of people taking classes and it's unusual for everyone to come with a partner. More people come without a partner than with. If a class has a gender imbalance, an instructor can ask people to rotate so everyone has a chance to learn. Don't let the lack of a partner stand in the way of learning.
