MonTango Events

FRIDAY:
The "CONNEXION TANGO" Practilonga

A guided/supervised all-levels tango-vals-milonga practice that segues into a laid-back milonga. 8 p.m.-12 a.m.

This is a great way to meet other dancers, to practise your steps, to try out the other role and to ask the teachers for help. Three-song tandas encourage partner changes. At 8:30 there is a mini-lesson for everyone, and at 9:30 p.m. the lights are dimmed and the dancing continues till midnight. (Once a month, the practilonga is replaced by our monthly "Connexion Tango" milonga.)

$8 members, $10 non-members

One Friday per month:
Monthly “CONNEXION TANGO” Milonga

Once a month instead of our Friday practilonga we hold a special thematic milonga.
