Practica Every Wednesday
9 pm - 11 pm
After our classes, we leave the music on and have our weekly practica, Practica de Los Amigos.
A practica is where we leave the music on, no cortinas (no breaks) and in a less formal setting and etiquette, we practice our Argentine Tango.
Every Wednesday from 9 pm to 11 pm.
Milonga Every Last Wednesday
Next: June 27, 2018 9 pm - 12 am
Caminito Amigo holds a milonga on the last Wednesday of every month. Milonga de Los Amigos.
We play our favorite tandas and dance the night away with wine and munchies.
Don't Have Shoes?
While you can use your low heels and leather sole shoes to attend a class (no sneakers or platform shoes), we recommend for good beginner shoes at a reasonable price Fu-Hau Dance Wear. Ask for Judy. 703.508.3870. She recommends to call before going.

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.
