Polling has been reopened to give a fair chance to other milongas that were not listed earlier and to spread the message about the poll to those milongas further south. Re Milonga Corazon, which is moving to The Tango Room, please vote for all aspects possible when it was at Sophie’s. Polling will end Jan. 31, 2019. Please share this post with others. Thanks!
When I first started dancing
Now, there is somewhere to dance
We have so many choices and different milongas attract us for various reasons. Whether it is the location, the music, the food, the floor or where people we know gather, we tend to be drawn to certain ones.
What is it about a milonga that attracts us?
To find out, I thought it would be fun to conduct a poll to see what aspects of milongas in Los Angeles and nearby areas local tango dancers like best and for what reasons.
Please cast your votes for the best floor, the best music, the best food, decor, etcetera. Leave a comment below, if you have something further to add.Please cast your votes for the best floor, the best music, the best food, decor, and more at local milongas.#tango #milongas Click To Tweet
Some milongas are at the same studios, but choose the one you attend when voting for aspects such as “best dance floor”.
Also, some venues have closed in the past year, and I might have missed one or two, so please let me know and I’ll adjust the poll. If you think I should add other categories to the poll, let me know too. You can send me a message here.
Keep in mind, this is in no way an effort to cast a negative light on any milonga or host.
Organizing and hosting a milonga takes a great deal of work, which many people do not realize. You do not make much money from organizing a milonga, as I intimately know having hosted several in the past. Most tango organizers do it for the love of the dance and the community.
However, milongas organizers might glean some useful information from what people find important when going out to dance tango.
Please be constructive and considerate when you leave a comment.
Voting ends midnight Jan. 31, 2019 at noon for the first results.
