Milonga Fabian Salas and Lola Diaz
The Milonga has a very strong rhythmical influence, the pulsation of the music is closer together than that of Tango, therefore MILONGA has a very unique style of stepping on to the floor. Shorter staccato steps will help create a more relaxed embrace allowing flow and connection. There are a lot of figures from Tango that do not fit in Milonga, we will show you which ones. $45
