As a short follow-up to my previous post, I would like to add a small list of Tango events for Milongueros who cherish dancing in a close embrace to traditional music.
There may be many more Festivals like these. But I just want to share those, that I have visited personally and that I can vouch for. I assure you, that the quality of embraces will be equal to those at the best traditional Milongas in Buenos Aires. These are the places, to where me and my friends from all over Europe go dancing just for fun - if we are not teaching there or organising the event. ;-)
Looking forward to meeting you at these occasions in 2011:
