Milongas in La Tangueria

Oliver and Marisa started organising milongas in 1996. At first there were the memorable Saturday evenings in La Roseraie, then we added the Sunday afternoon balls in CC Ons Huis and GC De Markten.

Since 1996, our own venue La Tangueria hosts most of our tango events. Traditionally, our thé dansants on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month from 17h till 22h, are among Brussels best and most visited tango happenings.

Généralement le choix musical aux milongas de La Tangueria est plutôt traditionnel, mais occasionellement nous proposons aussi une une milonga où la musique est prioritairement – voir totalement – alternative.

Generally the musical choice at the milongas in La Tangueria is rather traditional, but occasionally we also propose a neolonga, a milonga where the music is primarily – or even totally – alternative.

A milonga in La Tangueria generally reunites about 100 till 150 tangueros of all levels and horizons, and it has the reputation of being the event where the best tangueros and tangueras of Belgium meet to dance together. Nevertheless, La Tangueria also warmly welcomes less experienced and beginning dancers, as well as visitors and observers. The milongas are open to all, only the workshops and coaching sessions before require previous reservation.

Practilongas in La Tangueria

For students and close friends of La Tangueria, about one Saturday night per month from 20h to midnight, we offer a more intimate and informal practilonga. This concept halfway between a practica and a milonga, aims to gather the friends of La Tangueria and make them dance, practice, analyze, discuss, change partners and roles, share a drink, order a pizza… with their tango friends.

At the practilongas we stimulate the dancers to take risks by inviting strangers and dancers of other levels. We encourage women to ask men and to try to lead, and men to try the experience to follow and to accept the invitations of ladies and other men.

Marisa & Oliver and the other teachers of La Tangueria are there to dance with the students, answer questions, help, discuss, talk about music, relationships, the social aspect of tango …

During practicilongas we often offer free animation for everyone, like an initiation to the chacarera or the rock ‘n roll, a demonstration, etc.

Neolongas in La Tangueria

Since October 2017, we organise a few times per year a Neolonga in La Tangueria. At these rather open-minded events, we dance mainly or exclusively to nuevo, neo or non-tango music, sometimes also in the dark. For more information click on the link below.
> Charter of the Neolonga & Nocturna.

Our milongas, practilongas and neolongas are often preceded by a workshop or coaching. All dates of the balls in La Tangueria are on our Facebook page and on the Agenda.

 A place to dance, socialise, try shoes….

The milongas in La Tangueria are also a perfect opportunity, while you take a drink in our cosy club space, to choose, try and buy new shoes or clothes from our permanent collection of Tangolera shoes and Rossa Spina tango clothes.

Rules and codes

The balls in La Tangueria are relaxed and open-minded. We don’t impose dress codes, all dancers (ladies also) may invite by mirada and cabeceo, as well as verbally.

Female leaders and male followers are encouraged. To gain space, we incite the close embrace, but a more open style is also practiced. Everybody is welcome. There is only one, very simple rule: please respect the other dancers. 😉

 Musical style and DJs

Our house DJ is Oliver Koch, but we regularly invite other renown Tango Disc Jockeys from Belgium and abroad as well. The music is played in tandas and cortinas, mainly traditional, but not exclusively. Every year, we propose one milonga with music played from original vinyls by Belgian’s most international DJ, Jens Ingo Brodesser.
