October 31 + November 1, 2023 at Las Puertas

Two intense days of tango and milonga interpretation await us! –
I was very lucky to be able to dance every week with
the best old milongueros in Buenos Aires. Dancing with
some of them was like feeling that the orchestra was inside them!!!

Different orchestras require different interpretations.
Take your dance to another level. I want to share with you
what I inherited from my dear milongueros!


 Tuesday October 31st: TANGO

6:00 pm – 7:20 pm: Dancing with the rhythmic music of
D’Arienzo, Biagi, Donato, Rodríguez.  

7:40 pm – 9:00 pm:  Dancing with the melodic music of
Di Sarli, Pugliese, Caló, Demare.


Wednesday November 1st: MILONGA 

6:00 pm – 7:20 pm: Are you dancing milonga with tango steps?
DON’T!!!  The milonga has specific steps, learn those!!

7:40 pm to 9:00 pm: Milonga lisa (flat milonga) and milonga with
traspié.  Combine times when dancing milonga and have fun
in each milonga tanda!

Weekend Workshop Concepts:

“Dancing with you is like driving a Ferrari, too bad we’re in rush hour”
A few years ago dancing in Cachirulo at 444 Maipu Street in Buenos Aires, a
milonguero said this to Monica.  Remembering these words has shaped her
idea for this wonderful weekend of workshops!

Friday 4/28/23
7:30 pm to 9:00 pm:  Let’s improve our performance with self-diagnosis!

Saturday 4/29/23
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm:  Maybe not a Ferrari, there are all types of wonderful rides!
3:00 pm to 4:30 pm:  Pilot and co-pilot: Really connect with your dance partner!
7:00 pm to 11:00 pm:  Milonga de las Puertas – DJ: Michelle McRuiz
Drop in Milonga $15 or included with Workshop Registration

Sunday 4/30/23
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm:  Is your car in optimal condition?  Master the ‘Wheel’ for the different ‘roads.’
3:00 pm to 4:30 pm:  Would you drive with snow chains in summer?  Lets drive the smooth and
melodic roads of Di Sarli, Calo, and Demare!
