Milonga XO takes place from 9:30 to 1am (admission: $12 / $8 students)

Upcoming Topics

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.
