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.
Get ready for every 4th or last Saturday of the month!

Where have we been?
When Covid 19 spoiled our plans for a second edition of our newly created “Milonga El Gato” in March of 2020, we didn’t anticipate it will be over 3 years before we get back into the rhythm.
But we made it and we are back ! And with an exciting new location to be placed on a Dancing Map of Toronto. 1800Sqf of hardwood floor has just become available for our Saturdays dance functions at the Parish Hall of St Olave’s Anglican Church on Windermere Ave. just south of Bloor St. W.
The place has been retrofitted with 2 new powerful AC units so we don’t need to worry about heat, and one of our long tested concert speakers systems will provide flawless sound for best dancing experience.
There are many ways to dance Argentine Tango. For more information about differences between various Tango styles you can check our posting “here”, please keep in mind however, those are just our observations, everybody has their own take on Tango.
Almost exactly 2 years after our last classes in 2020, we are happy to announce we will be restarting classes in March. We got a great schedule for all of you Tangueras and Tangueros starved for returning to the rhythm.
