Saturday Swango Practilonga Nueva.
What is SWANGO?
When Argentine Tango crossed it’s path with Waltz so many decades ago, the marriage created a new dance – a Tango Vals – that become a staple of Argentine Tango family on par with Milonga.
If only historically Argentine Tango had more time to interact with Swing, especially with its moody French Gypsy Swing cousin, Swango would have been another of the regular tandas we usually dance to.
As such encounter never came to pass, we decided to make up for the lost time and from previous unsuccessful attempts to marry Tango with West Coast Swing, bring SWANGO to it’s proper place.
SWANGO fits squarely between Argentine Tango, Tango Nuevo and Milonga on one, LindyHop and all of Retro Swing family including Foxtrot and Balboa on second, and Latin Fusion with Salsa, Cumbia, Kizomba Semba and Samba on the third side.
See you there!
