MonTango Events

A milonga is a location or event where people dance tango socially. Dancing in the milongas is the goal of most tango dancers: This is the tango scene, the night life, where you get dressed up and go to mingle, socialize and, of course, dance. Dancers in a milonga are expected to be able to navigate the floor smoothly and to follow certain codes of conduct. (Read more here.) A crowded milonga full of expert tangueras and tangueros can be intimidating for new dancers.

A práctica (or practice) offers a more informal setting where dancers of any level can focus on practising their moves and improving their technique. Some prácticas, including ours, include teacher supervision. We suggest beginners start with the prácticas and move on to milongas after no less than 6-12 months of dancing.

*Connexion Tango membership: Membership with Connexion Tango gives you a discount on entrance to MonTango's Friday and Sunday milongas. Membership costs $30/year and includes one free entrance. We highly recommend purchasing a membership, which pays for itself if you attend just five milongas in the course of a year. (Note that current MonTango students pay the member price.)

TANGUERAFEST

Every March
Tanguerafest is the weekend that marks International Women's Day by celebrating the women of tango. Due to continued COVID-related restrictions and uncertainties, we have decided to cancel the 2022 edition. We'll be back with a great celebration in 2023!

TANGO SHOW: HISTORIAS DE TANGO 2023

The next show is planned for spring 2023 to celebrate MonTango's 15th anniversary!

We normally produce a big amateur-professional show on stage in a theatre every two years. The last one was in April 2019 and the next one – our 5th! – is planned for April 2023. We'll keep you posted!
