Milonga uses the same basic elements as Tango and requires a greater relaxation of legs and body. Movement is normally faster. It is rather a kind of rhythmic walking without complicated figures, with a much more "rustic" style than Tango.There are different styles of Milonga: "Milonga Lisa" (Simple Milonga), in which the dancer steps on every beat of the music; and "Milonga con TraspiƩ," in which the dancer uses TraspiƩs or contrapasos (changes of weight from one foot to the other and back again in double time or three steps in two beats) to interpret the music. Thus, dynamics may be danced without having to run fast or without the use of much space."

Special PRACTICA from 7pm - late at Avalon RSL Thursday 30th June. Please use this opportunity to put your tango into practice and DANCE! Only $10
