Our early-evening, all-alternative milonga is always a big hit.
Our opening milonga, which begins Thursday, October 27, 2016 at 9:00 p.m., will be at the extraordinary Milonga del las Puertas venue located at 1512 1st St. NW. This converted mid-century warehouse is chock-full of 19th-century architectural antiquities and has a perfect permanent dance floor and a great sound system. Last year people raved about this amazing space.
Regular milongas (two on Friday, one each on Saturday and Sunday) will be held at the Hotel Albuquerque Old Town in the 14,000 SF Alvarado Ballrrom. Our 3,000 SF main dance floor with a 1,500 SF overflow floor, world-class DJs, welcoming community, and array of fabulous dancers from all over the world will deliver you to tango nirvana at every milonga!
Live performance by QTANGO orchestra
Albuquerque’s much acclaimed, nationally touring, eminently danceable tango orchestra QTANGO will perform during the Saturday late night milonga. You’re in for a treat.
Cake at every milonga!
Our festival's signature touch, giant cusstom-baked, no-two-alike, cakes will again appear at every milonga.
Intermediate and advanced level classes with world-class master instructors are offered Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Two class tiers are offered each day, with three to four class options per tier available.
Thursday, October 27 - Sunday, October 30, 2016
