Winter Milonga calendar for Halifax (tango social dance parties)!
Note: The word Milonga has two meanings: here it means the tango dance party, but the word also may refer to a type of music and dance in the tango genre of tango, vals, and milonga, such as when you see a class in Milonga listed – that is the dance form, not the social gathering. I don’t know the exact historical basis for the word acquiring two meanings. If you do, let me know. Very confusing for beginner dancers! At the milonga dance event, we play tangos, waltz and milonga music.
