Sept. 20: “Walking Rhythmically and Musically for Leaders and Followers”
The tango “walk” is the most fundamental, yet most elusive part of the dance’s technique. Many dancers underestimate the power of the walk and thus miss an important key to musicality: how to express the time “in between” the beats to create a more intimate, more musical connection. Come join us and learn to “dance your walk” in a way that expresses all the music has to offer.

“El Pulpo” is a character in the world of tango. I’ve known him for 25 years,
and we studied together in those days. What I admire about him is his
perseverance and loyalty to his own style and form, his own tango. At the
moment he is having a hard time in life, he needs a liver transplant,
and he is calling out for help. With NETA, we are going to add our bit by
donating the proceeds of our milonga ARRABAL.
Hope to see you this
Friday to support this cause and also support the tango, as he also
contributed to the history of tango.
ARRABAL, hosted by Armando Orzuza & Nuria Martinez

Last Performance in Boston by Armando & Nuria before their tour in Italy.
Milonga Arrabal has gone though changes since we started a bit over a year now. Our goal has been and still is to provide a space to dance tango in the most authentic way, to make it closer to what a milonga in Buenos Aires would be.
More details to come…
Look forward to see you on the dance floor!
