Taiji Tango Milonga

1st and 3rd Sundays

Have you ever played footsie with someone? Have you experienced a beautiful long hug? I’m sure you have taken a walk with someone hand in hand, right? Argentinian Tango can look like all of these.

Why Taiji? The goal of Tai Chi is relaxation and ease, in movement and mindset. Blending the concepts of tai chi and tango changes the perception of Tango: from hard to easy, from complicated to simple, from stressful to ease.

Taiji Tango Milonga is an alternative Argentinian Tango event.

It blends modern music with a traditional dance that evolved around 1880 in Buenos Aires. This event is your opportunity to taste this blend of worlds.

The evening will start with a beginners lesson at 6pm. Followed by a mini-practica.

Dancing starts around 7:15, and halfway through the evening we will have The Community Showcase. This allows all members of the community a chance to show us their skill and passion for the Tango!

To encourage empowered and caring dancers we have created some statements called, Self & Community Care. Look for the poster when you arrive.

Your host, teacher and DJ for this event is Eric Arthur. He found Tango in 2017, has been dJing other type of events since 2002, and uses his 22 years of experience in Tai chi to make Tango easy and approachable
