We are currently not hosting a milong at Paradise Tango. Check back for future events!

 

What exactly is a "Milonga" you may ask??

Milonga is a term for a place or an event where tango is danced. People who frequently go to milongas are sometimes called milongueros. The term "milonga" can also refer to a musical genre.

The music played is mainly tango, vals and milonga (as the musical genre). Most milongas are held on a regular basis (in our case monthly), and they often begin with dancing classes and sometimes demonstration dances. Usually, three to five songs of a kind are played in a row (this is called tanda) followed by a short musical break (called cortina) to clear the dancefloor and facilitate partner changes.
