Get ready for a Special four-hour milonga. October’s grand finale features Live music by Emiliano Messiez and Leandro Ragusa. These two musicians are the pianist and bandoneonist of a quartet that that just released a new album in a performance in NYC. They are both master musicians – read about their accomplishments below.
In addition, Meredith Klein and Andres Amarilla will DJ between the sets of live music. AND to make the event even more memorable come dressed to impress. Wear your best Tango outfit, or, in the spirit of Halloween wear a costume.
Everyone will be wearing a covid grade mask, so use your imagination to use this to enhance your outfit. This will be another VivaTango Evening to Remember

Lesson with Iwona and Pablo + Milonga with DJ MayoK aka Urszula
Iwona and Pablo’s lesson title is “It Takes Three to Tango”. What is that third member of this threesome? They will show you that you, your partner, and … the floor are the important elements for maximizing the connection to the floor for beautiful tango figures and rhythmic milonga movements.
The milonga that follows the lesson at 8:15 will be DJed by the incomparable MayoK, also known as Urszula. She is just returning from Morocco. She will bring some of the mystic magic she experienced in Marrakesh. Thursday’s milonga will be the Marrakesh Milonga.
