DC Tango

When I travel, I make a point to observe the local tango scene and attend at least one milonga, practica, or lesson. While in Washington DC, I attended the Tuesday milonga at the 18th Street Lounge. What a wonderful place! The entrace way is a bit hidden- next to a mattress store (in the image, it is behind the tree). You walk upstairs find the door to a space that feels like an art studio with high white walls and some paintings. The light was low and small lights lined the floor along the walls- very hip. The leaders were quite friendly, and I was asked to dance all night. The Washington DC tango leaders are a joy to dance with. I highly recommend attending this milonga, it is one of my favorites in the U.S.
