Join us on Saturday, September 13, for our MILONGA with OSCAR MANDAGARAN and GEORGINA VARGAS! The fabulous Oscar & Georgina return for a weekend of workshops, and they will be performing at the milonga on the 13th! The dancing starts at 9:00 pm and goes until 1:00 am or so with DJ (to be announced)! Light refreshments are provided. Cost is $15.
We host our "Tango del Rio" Milongas (the social dance in Argentine Tango is called a "milonga") twice a month on the 2nd & 4th Saturday of every month. These milongas are a taste of Buenos Aires -- we play traditional tango music for the first three hours. At midnight, we switch to alternative music for a whole new feel to the tango. Come get a taste of Buenos Aires en el norte!
Cost is usually $10 (sometimes $15-30 when there is live music or a tango performance, etc.) and includes some light refreshments.
