East Rock Tango: Weekly Milonga

  • KELLY'S (BACKROOM) 196 Crown Street New Haven, CT 06510 (map)

Join us at the next "Back to Basics Milonga"!

The "East Rock Tango" community holds a FREE weekly milonga (a social event with Argentine tango dancing) every Wednesday. Argentine dancers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend, especially novices and beginners. If you are more experienced we can chat and share stories.

Social dancing from 8-11 PM. If you and a friend have time to dance only a few tandas, or if you prefer to practice before the first class, we are often ready at 7:30 PM.

We also offer two FREE 60 minute classes (at 8 and 9 PM; more details below) which will NOT interfere with the social dancer who expect a predictable line-of-dance. The instruction can be moved to the large spaces near the windows. This should prevent any problems caused by new dancers who have not mastered navigation.

Find us at Kelly's GastroPub (Crown & Temple; New Haven). We dance in the BACK room. If you enter through the front door do NOT pay the cover charge (for the salsa dancing). Or knock on the side entrance door (near the shoe repair shop). Look for the signs. Follow your heart.

Let us be your guide to this wonderful dance. Join us and listen to some inspiring music recorded in Buenos Aires from the "Golden Age of Tango" (plus some entertaining "cortinas"). Join us and simply watch people dance. Join us for some fun dancing.

Stay for as long as your want. A few minutes, a few hours, or a few years. Dancing the Argentine tango can change your life. We can help you find that often elusive connection with your dance partners. The Argentine tango is physical, emotional, and intellectual.
