Live a real night of pure Tango!!!!

icono Why real?

A lot of people from different parts of the world visit Buenos Aires looking for authentic experiences, and, not prepared for the average tourist.

Let’s start with the first major difference that separates the stage tango from the so called tango salon or traditional. The first is basically a choreographic tango, often consisting of several dance couples, prepared for a stage and accompanied by a live orchestras, lights and show costumes. The tango salon, also called traditional, is characterized as an improvised dance, where the man is the one that leads or proposes, and the woman follows or disposes. In this case, the dance does not develop on a stage, but in a ballroom also called “milonga”.

icono What is a Milonga?

The milonga is the place where locals and tango lovers from around the world go to dance Tango. Since this is a purely social dance, where the dance floor is shared, there are several codes or rules that should be respected.

icono What are the tips I should know by the time I go to the milonga?

  • You dance counterclockwise. The more advanced dancers dance near the tables that surround the dance floor, while the ones that have less experience, must remain at the center of the dance floor.
  • The tangos are divided in sets. Each set has 4 tangos of the same orchestra and should be danced from the beginning to the end with the same person. We recognize that a set has finished when we hear the “curtain” ,which is any rhythm or musical style different from the tango.
  • When a tango finishes or between set and set, people do not clap. Only applaud if there is an exhibition or show.
  • In the milonga it is more frequent that the gentleman invites the lady to dance. The most traditional and usual way, is with a “nod”. This occurs once eye contact between two people happened, the gentleman tilts his head toward the dance floor, if the lady accepts, she moves his head with a nod. Then awaits that the man approaches her table, to accompany her to the dance floor.
