Milonga "El Encopao" | Wednesday | January 31, 2018
Our next fun milonga will be Milonga "El Encopao" on Wednesday, January 31, 2018.
We will serve hot apple cider made from scratch by Jose which we all loved in the Holiday Milonga, learn about the song "El Encopao" (and sing along), have many munchies, friends, wine and of course dance a good tanda or two. Feel free to bring something to share.

Learn Argentine Tango (Beg.)
February 7, 2018
Start out the New Year with an Argentine Tango journey. Starting Wednesday, February 7, 2018 at 7 pm, we will cover the techniques of walking and the embrace, along with dancing with feeling in this 6-week 1-hour course. At the end, you will be dancing a good beginner's tango.
Also great to give as a gift! Just enter your friend's name at Registration.
Tango Class Every Wednesday
Advanced Beginner classes are held every Wednesday at 8 pm at Caminito Amigo Studio. A 30-minute Practica follows each class to practice what we've learned.
Our goal is to teach our students to dance with the music and not just the steps, with a firm embrace and elegant walk, for a better connection and proper posture for better balance.
Learn what it means to be a good leader and a good follower.
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.

Other Tango in DC Metro Area
For other Milongas in the DC Metro area, we recommend looking at the Capital Tangueros calendar.
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.
Join our friendly community of Argentine Tango lovers for classes, milongas and Tango related events.
We hold beginner classes every Wednesday, host Master Teachers from Argentina on a regular basis to expand our knowledge to the next level and hold asados (Argentine BBQ), milongas and other cultural events revolving around Argentine Tango.
