*The word Milonga has two meanings, often confusing for beginner dancers! 1) Milonga, as in a gathering/ tango dance party: an event where people are dancing tangos, vals or milongas. USE: I am going to the milonga tonight. 2) Milonga, as in a dance type = here milonga refers to a type of 2/4 musical rhythm and dance form in the tango genre (tango, vals, and milonga). Historically the milonga as a dance form pre-dates tango, and has more Afro- Caribbean roots. USE: Let’s take that milonga class so we can dance the milonga set at next Saturday’s milonga.
