MILONGA TANGO AMOR

16.00 – 17.00 Introduction to Argentinian tango.
17.00 – 20.00 Milonga open dance floor.
Milonga is a social dance meeting connected to Argentinian tango. Invite someone up with a suave “cabeceo” nod of the head, and lose yourself in the flow of the “la ronda” dance!
Argentinian tango developed in Buenos Aires at the end of the 19th century and became popular in Europe in the 1920s. In the last ten years, tango has enjoyed a fresh resurgence in popularity. Milonga opens with a one-hour introduction to tango for beginners under the guidance of Ernesto Garzón from Tango Amor. Throughout the evening, rhythmic Argentinian tango will be performed in classic dance arrangements.
Ticket price: 100 SEK. No pre-booking.
