Tango in tiny spaces…

Posted on Updated on

Wood floor, lovely music, nice partner….but oops!

How do I adjust my dance to this tiny little floor space?

La piccola milongaWell, nothing beats an embrace that gets a little closer, steps a little smaller and of course more contra-body movement. Connect in a way that is even more intimate.
Breathe and flow with the music and dance creating small spirals as a group.
The milongas in Buenos Aires have this down to a science practically. Everyone dances in a counter-clockwise motion and ‘lanes’ are formed. The group breathes and moves together and an honour of a milonguero is to make sure his partner “never” touches anyone. Passing happens rarely and if it ever does it is from the left.

To see this mass moving together really is something beautiful and special.

Please join us Sunday June 2 at El Almacen and enjoy the beautiful tango music and embrace your own ‘small space dancing’ skills!
