April Milonga & Special Lesson

Join Iowa Tango on April 13th for our “Tango Through Time” milonga transporting you to the vintage ballrooms of the 1920s-1950s.

At the historic DanceMor Ballroom in Swisher, IA, you’ll be immersed in a romantic bygone era as you tango across the original 1929 hardwood dance floor surrounded by nostalgic decor and classic tango music spanning the decades. Embrace the theme and dress in your tango-inspired vintage best!

We have an exceptionally special guest instructor this month – Matias Sotto, a renowned tango dancer and teacher hailing directly from the tango capital of Buenos Aires, Argentina. With two decades of professional experience, Matias was the first man to compete in the prestigious World Tango Championships in both lead and follow roles.

Matias will share his mastery focusing on the giro/molinete – the essential circular traveling movements that are the foundation for progressing to more advanced figures. Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to learn from one of the true Argentine tango masters!

Matias will also be offering private lessons in Cedar Rapids during the day on Saturday for those wanting more personalized coaching. His visit is timed perfectly to help promote his upcoming Tango Workshop in Fairfield, IA on April 20-21 (See the event posting for more details).

Our very own DJ Irina has curated a special vintage tango playlist spanning the golden era to set the perfect ambiance for this event. You’ll swoon to the sultry sounds of legendary orchestras like Donato, Troilo, Di Sarli and more!

You’re welcome to bring snacks or food to share. Please note that outside drinks are prohibited, but a variety of drinks are available for purchase at the bar.

Lesson plus Milonga Entry: $20
Milonga only: $10
