5/15/15 O&A Shall We Dance Friday: 5 Incredible Argentine Tango Performances

Shall We Dance


Lots can be said about performance tango but I am a lot more of a milonga kind-of-guy. Milongas are social dance parties at the dance halls that are less formal, less rigid, and much more nuanced by the small dance floors and relationships that form. Milongas are a place to find “under the radar” performance gems. Here are my top 5 picks of the best Argentine Tango performances at milongas in 2014 (new rankings based on viewers’ choice):

1. Chicho Frumboli & Juana Sepulveda Performing at Dance Manhattan (NYC)

2. Ismael Ludman & Maria Mondino at Timisoara Tango Story (Timisoara, Romania)

3. Michael Nadtochi & Eleanora Kalganova at Prischepov Milonga (Russia,Moscow)

4. Gustavo Naveira & Giselle Anne – The Great Milonga at Goldcoast Ballroom (Coconut Creek, FL)

5. Claudio Gonzalez & Melina Brufman – Milonga Apertura at Rosario Tango Festival (Rosario, Argentina)
