Milonga 102 on 12 July 2014, by Scott Baldwin

After a brief revision of the musicality explained in Milonga 101, we will then dive deeper into some new and interesting elements, and learn how these elements work with the milonga rhythm. The bonus, however, is that I will show how many of these elements are just stolen and adapted from tango, and can be used in Tango, Milonga or Vals. The class will be structured as a 2 hour class, followed by a 1 hour practica.

From Scott:

Back in March I had the privilege of running my Milonga 101 workshop in  Newcastle. I was amazed by the awesome support shown to me by the Newcastle tango scene, and have been wanting to come back and run my follow up workshop, Milonga 102, ever since. So it is with great pleasure I bring you Milonga 102.


Looking forward to seeing you all again.”
