Milongas

A tango community is an association of dancers of all levels who attend social dances called “milongas” and informal practice gatherings called “prácticas.” For a tango community to grow and survive, dancers must have enjoyable dance experiences in a friendly environment. We host five milongas and a free weekly práctica every month for alumni of the school and members of the tango community at large.

Our regular rotating DJs are Yulia Kriskovets, Anthony Lara, Gabriel El Huracan and Jaime Montemayor, but we often have guest DJs and our milongas sometimes feature live performances by musicians.

 

ESL MILONGA AT 18TH ST. LOUNGE
18th St. Lounge (ESL) is a restored town house mansion, and an enticing environment for dancers, with original hardwood flooring, high ceilings, and comfy antique couches and chairs all around. It has been legendary in DC nightlife for years—even the entrance is secret and unmarked! The door is to the left of the Little Beet Restaurant, enter and find your way up the purple carpet stairway. We are in the Gold Room, just off the main floor. Please note: Positive ID check at the door, attendees have to be over 21—no exceptions.
