Triangular dancing!

Here you have an old milonga summary of Jorge Torres workshop. I think he is one of the teachers who often had his baby around the workshop floor and on the videos. I wonder how the baby thinks about the dance today?

Here a more recent video and at earlier stages but still a sweet family picture. I wonder if Michelle and Joachim are going to have a new baby?

A Chicho interview

I came across this Chicho interview again and refreshed some information lost during the years! I remember that he has been working together with Naveira and Salas but in this interview he strongly states how important impact Naveira has had on him. He talks also about the base for his dance as well as the changing opinions about him!

Take a look! It is beautifull too

Here you have the Vimeo link!

Kalganova and Nadtochi to waltz - a beaaaauty!

There is today only a few couples who master waltz and clearly fewer who will do it with this skill!

Kalganova Eleonora and Michael Nadtochi are performing at a milonga in Denver, Colorado: Juan D'arienzo "Corazon De Artista.

Here you can read more about this couple, the stars on the Tango Salong sky!

Francesca and Giorgio at 3Esquinas in Stockholm

This time Giorgio has come together with Francesca for a workshop weekend in town. This video is from the Sunday milonga called 3Esquinas. The workshop starts usually at 3.30 PM and the milonga at 5PM. Then we have four hours to spend on the floor!

This performance was not the only specialty for this Sunday but the event was visited by Los Rivarolas - Carlos y Maria - appreciated traditional tango dancers! Can you find them in the crowd?


I usually don't like this type of music which reminds me about concert but this video made something with me. The combination of movements and the music has had impact on me and I am geting curious. What steps could I find from this music landscape?

I liked the very most the roughly done sandwiches following the roughness in music beautifully! Click here if you want to get there directly

I filmed the milonga too but the rest of the songs I just enjoyed! You find them on FB.

If you want to know some more about Los Rivarolas!

My dancing and training in end September

This autumn I will be training on Wednesday practica hosted by TangoNorte, the oldest tango community in Stockholm. Yes it looks empty but I was so busy all the evening so the fotos were taken when it was closed down . . . . 

On some Saturdays there is a Milonga Piccola for three hours dance (18-21). It is the most formal milonga here with role based seating (I am placed among the leaders). When you arrived one of the hosts will welcome you and suggest a seat available. (The Pictures: here we have the same situation - I was dancing all the time and the picture was taken in the very end of the event)

Sundays we have a matine milonga called 3Esquinas; usually 17-21PM. Maximo who is running the milonga organizes orchestra visits as well as teachers.

These and the restaurant Grammofon are the places I visit most often when at home!

Tuesdays at old Pele/ new Grammofon

The music starts at 7 PM on Tuesdays but it is not very crowded at the beginning so it is comfortable to test new figures before you throw them in to a steamy dance later in the evening! This is a restaurang so you can start the evening one hour earlier with a dinner for energy to get through the night!

This is how it looked som moments later!

Greetings from Stockholm, Sweden!

Roxana Suares and her playfulness!

Lucky me to hit this video from Brussels Tango Festival again and I was moved near to tears by the  Edith Piaf vals she and Fernando Sanchez were dancing that year! Nearly painfully enjoyable!

Her excellent technique is always visible but the playfulness and musicality came to glow this time!

The year after, 2016,  she danced with Chicho and proved the same!

Enjoy you too!
