ON HIATUS Conversational Tango with Erika & Mark

Classes with a focus on cultivating musicality, sensitivity to your partner, and a strong dance foundation. We aim to dance tango as if it’s an egalitarian dialogue between leader and follower. Though we learn sequences to illustrate kinetic principles, we focus on building improvisational skills so that a surprising, humorous, and tender dance form emerges.

For all tango levels. No partner necessary. CURRENTLY ON BREAK.

There will be no milonga this Friday, May 16th or Friday, May 23. Please go out and supportĀ Rosalia and Alejandro in Richmond!

Milongas and Practicas

Every Friday night, Charlottesville Tango hosts our weekly milonga.

Occasionally we also have practicas, they are announced on the calendar, and home page of Charlottesville Tango. Stay tuned.

VERY IMPORTANT look at the Studio tab for Parking information

Milongas are social dances for Argentine tango. They are a great time to dance, try out what you learned in lessons, and meet the greater tango community! Milongas are sometimes preceded by a free lesson, beginning at 8:00 or 8:30. Check the calendar our our weekly announcements to confirm.

Guided Practicas are offered in the format that practicas are offered in Buenos Aires. It’s a time to dance, practice, try out new moves, and discuss what works – and what works better! The host, in addition to DJing, will share an idea, movement, or tool/exercise and will be available to answer questions and offer suggestions. Dancers can rotate partners or work with the same partner through multiple tandas. This is a great bridge for beginning dancers between classes and milongas, and is a great opportunity for more experienced dancers to share their tips and work on refining their skills.
