Tango sessions begin at 8 p.m. with a one-hour lesson and one-hour of supervised practice during which instructors correct techniques. At 10 p.m., the milonga conquers the floor with an energetic dance party until 2 a.m. in the the Eastern Market's historic North Hall. Each night at 11 p.m., renowned tango dancers will perform for students. In July, Cecilia Gonzalez teaches and dances with Jake Spatz, and in August, Chicho Frumboli and Juana Sepulveda set the floor aflame with their fiery moves.
Eastern Market Tango
Eastern Market Tango introduces locals to the art of tango with group dance parties and lessons conducted by a pair of in-house instructors. Jake Spatz combines his love for dance and DJ'ing in his nightly activities at Eastern Market, and Maximilliano Gluzman brings the skills he learned studying tango with renowned Argentine dancers and teaching at La Academia in Buenos Aires. Their tango lessons focus on correct posture, leading, and following to help couples communicate through body language and respectfully traverse the dance floor. They also work on improvisation, to help couples find enjoyable ways to dance together in crowded clubs or ATM vestibules where space may be limited.
During milongas—dynamic tango dance parties—advanced and beginning students strut their sultry skills on the dance floor until the wee hours. Three-tiered plates of fresh fruit and dark chocolate beckon resting dancers, as pairs work their way across the studio’s spacious hardwood floors.
