Spokane Tango

MILONGAS

Monthly Milonga Schedule


Milonga's are dance parties where we socially dance Argentine Tango.  Music is in a "tanda" format with 4 tango's grouped together (3 for milonga, 3-4 for vals) followed by a "cortina" a short piece of non-tango music.  Traditionally you dance all 4 songs in a tanda with the same partner.  During the cortina there is NO dancing and you wait for the next tanda to begin and choose another partner to dance with.  You select a partner by using "cabaceo" an eye gesture which is accepted or denied with a glance or nod of the head.  3 types of musical tandas will be played: tango, vals, milonga.  The last song of every evening is La Cumparsita.
