If you want to learn to dance tango, Buenos Aires offers several Milongas where to go, with professionals who will begin teaching you the basic steps of this passionate dance. You will find musicians and singers, who will be playing live for you and tables where you can sit and relax, take something to eat or drink after the class, while enjoying the show.
Something to bear in mind is that at the Milongas the dance floor is shared with many couples, so the ideal thing is to arrive early or leave late, to dance comfortably. Furthermore, there are a number of things that are recommended to take with you:
- Dancing shoes,
- other pair of shoes for the foot to rest, especially women should bring another pair of shoes with no heel,
- an extra shirt or jacket to change the dance or class,
- an extra pair of socks for after the dance,
- talcum powder for the soles of the shoes to slide on the floor with no problems,
- hair gel.
Among the various Milongas in the City, we can highlight “Porteño and Dancer”, which has two dance floors, professional teachers, singers, musicians and air conditioning. Classes are on Tuesdays at 21:00 pm and at 22:00 am starts the free dance, where you can practice all you have learned. Is also opens on Sundays from 19:00 pm. Located at Riobamba 345.
