General Info re our milongas:The style we love to teach & dance is Tango de Salon (including the best of Villa Urquiza & fantasia). We welcome all styles, but we would like to emphasize that respecting the distance between couples, minimal overtaking, keeping the flow of the dance floor, and the use of cabeceo are important codes in our milongas.
‘Cabeceo’ or ‘nod of the head’, is how one invites and acknowledges a partner for a dance in the milongas of Buenos Aires. For dancing to have meaning it has to be desired by both the woman and the man. This method of asking a woman to dance gives her the ability to accept or decline with the minimum embaressment and social risk for all concerned. This ritual evolved over many years on the dance floors of Argentina, and although it is not without its pitfalls, I think it can be an elegant solution that also carries the charm of tradition.
