List of Tango events
This is quite an extensive list of Tango events in the City.
I personally attend these events:
Astoria Tango Club
DJ: Mariana Fresno
DJ: Michael Wen-Sen Su
Tango Lounge at DanceSport
DJ: Tine Herreman
The Tango Lounge event is a new one for me. Last Friday was packed because they had Alex Krebs drop by. I hear it's usually pretty low-key, though. From my first experience, however, I really enjoyed the music selection from the DJ. The setting is interesting, separating the dance floor with the lounge area. (Glass walls visually connects the lounge and milonga room but dampens the music enough to carry conversation fairly easy.)
I've attended the Wednesday practica fairly regularly since I started. Snacks and wine is always offered. And while it's small, it's a beautiful space. Mike is also, by far, my favourite DJ, at least so far. Last week's practica had so much good music it was actually a bit draining by the end of the event. Hah hah.
The Astoria Tango Club class/practica/milonga has the best space I've seen so far. It's in a big dance hall with tables, bottle service, food service, and a big dance floor. The floor, however, isn't quite as nicely kept as the studio floors, but there is a lot of room. My only qualm about this place is the lack of good dancers and sometimes the music selection isn't the greatest.
The group I'm usually with tell me that RoKo is a really good Milonga on Sundays. Supposedly a lot of really good dancers go there. I may have to build myself up a bit before stepping up to RoKo.
