All four days during the daytime, maestros will be teaching a series of progressive workshops, let’s take advantage and learn from some of the BEST in the World! At night we will be graced with inspirational and exquisite traditional, neotango and alternative music, as well as amazing performances.
For those of you who know us and who have been at Milonga Gavito, our love and passion for tango also translates into embracing and welcoming different tango genres, and we are very pleased to also include a second ballroom dedicated to the first ever Neotango LA Marathon, as a part of the Gavito Tango Festival. We will feature 3 days of afternoon and evening alternative music milongas, Friday through Sunday. The Neotango LA Marathon portion of the Gavito Festival will take place in the same venue but in a separate ballroom, featuring an excellent lineup of DJs, including Michael McCarrell and Alison Bradley of Los Angeles, and others.
We will be dancing on Jim Baker’s delightfully smooth, custom tango dance floor so enjoyed by dancers at the Tucson and San Diego Tango Festivals.
And of course, if you are interested in renewing your tango wardrobe, and adding more shoes to your collection, we will have the best vendors in the house:
- Shoes by Tango Splash (Yolanda Rossi)
- Shoes by Julia Bella (Julia Schiptsova)
