You may have noticed that I haven’t got much to say about Tango these days. I think I have pretty much said it all, that and the fact that I haven’t been dancing much. That is what happens when one moves to a land of no Tango. My life has taken off on a different turn. That doesn’t mean that I don’t love Tango or keep up with events in London and abroad.
I am planning on taking a trip to Bruges at the end of May and would like to go to a Milonga there, if there is one. I need to Google it and find out. However, there is nothing like having a personal recommendation. When I went to Seville, I wrote about my experience there. I didn’t know what to expect, but I had a wonderful time, mainly because I didn’t expect anything and because I met some wonderful people. Although I never managed a Milonga in Berlin (due to the BA cock-up with luggage at Terminal 5 on the way out!), I had some lovely recommendations from friends who have danced there.
So, I was wondering if anyone was interested in writing a guest post about a Milonga that they went to in Europe or further afield? Obviously, the positive reviews will be the most encouraging, however anything seemingly negative is not necessarily a bad thing either. For example: A friend of mine went to some milongas while on holiday. They said that there were plenty of Milongas and good floors, but too few numbers.
To me, that is not a bad review. It is honest and would let people know what to expect. If you were travelling with your dance partner, then that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. If you were on your own, then it might be more challenging, but who is to really say that you wouldn’t have a good time.
If someone said that the hospitality was lacking and the music was rubbish, well, I think they would need to go into more detail. If you like traditional salon and everyone is dancing to modern Nuevo, well then you have a problem, but at least people would know what to expect.
So, what do you all think?
Send me a comment on this post if you are interested. And, if anyone knows anywhere nice to dance in Bruges, please let me know!
