Armando & Nuria | September 2018
We loved having Armando Orzuza and Nuria Martinez this past weekend. The Master Class and Workshops were amazing. We look forward to their next visit.
Jesus Velazquez & Mariana Castro
It was an honor to host Jesus and Mariana this August 2018.
We had fun and learned a lot from them. Combined with his singing prowess and chacarera background, we had a beautiful show at CocoCabana and look forward to having them back.
El Flaco Dany's First Time in DC
Spending time with Dany this past July 2018 was to spend time with Argentine Tango history itself.
El Flaco Dany is a relic of Argentine history. He is one of the last few legendary Milongueros of the Argentine Tango Golden Era.
It was an honor to host him for the first time here in the DC metro area.

Every Wednesday from 9:15 pm to 11 pm.

We know style is important, but it's more important to have a well fitting shoe. Select your shoes by comfort.
Other Tango in DC Metro Area
For other Milongas in the DC Metro area, we recommend looking at the Capital Tangueros calendar.
Join our friendly community of Argentine Tango lovers for classes, milongas and Tango related events.
We hold beginner courses every 6 weeks, host Master Teachers from Argentina every month to expand our knowledge to the next level and hold asados (Argentine BBQ), milongas and other cultural events revolving around Argentine Tango.
Tango is a feeling, a "sentimiento" that you dance to.
When you start the dance, you do not start with a step, you start with a feeling.
