We all have  encountered more experienced dancers who took the time to dance with us. They let us make our mistakes, and thus learn. We have never forgotten them. They are intrinsic parts of our tango journey... Join these milonga nights to inspire others and extend your heart to newcomers. To those now regularly going out to dance, make the spirit of Tango Magdalena Studio shine stronger and radiate a friendly environment.
