…to start the new year. This is classic stage tango. Although three and a half million can’t be wrong I suppose. Witness Magdalena Valdez and Facundo Gallo dancing what they love to do to a wonderful orchestra.
Want to dance like that? Want to be held like that? Want to feel like that? We all started for the first time. Why not give it a try on Wednesday the 14th of September at 1920?
For those of you who were interested this is The Curse by Anges Obel. I tried it out as the part of our Nuevo/Alternative tanda. The fact that everyone danced to the one song meant that it will be repeated often.
Also to the nice people who turned up right at the end. The DJ calls it at the end of the milonga. He had called it as the last two tandas were fairly flat with not many people dancing so that was the last tango when you turned up. If our paths will cross again, across the sea, I will dance with you then!
There is a special offer for the month of September where you can pay for six classes for the price of 50 EUR if you are a new beginner. You can use these classes at any time but offer ends on the 30th of September!

Sebastian Arce & Mariana Montes on what constitutes the correct embrace. Why do you ask? Because there are many types of embrace. Milogeuro. Salon. Nuevo. You can check it out if you want but be warned there is an actual cost if you want to fully check it out. A similar event was done recently by them and can be seen below:
The next beginner class starts on the 1st of June for six weeks. It is important to realise that the ending of the classes is Wednesday the 27th of July… but that it starts all again on Wednesday 14th September in the Metropole Hotel at 1930!
The Sunday night milonga finishes on the 31st of July and they will resume again on Sunday the 11th of September at 2000.
Sssh. Don’t tell anyone this. This is a secret. Imagine telling a beginner man he has to learn to find the rhythm of the music, watch out for navigational hazards on the dance floor, develop a strategy on the spot for dealing with them choosing from a repertoire of movements he has learned, then lead the woman to move in the intended direction with the intended speed while maintaining the connection, and then… He has to follow the woman’s response to his lead to determine the next move (within a millisecond, after all, this is not chess), and take responsibility for whatever goes wrong. And we wonder why there aren’t enough men in tango? Yet the surviving men keep trying. It must be that the rewards of tango are greater than its obstacles.
