11.22.18100th Milonga NUEVA ★ Dec 1st ★ DJ El Gallo

The next Milonga NUEVA will be the 100th Milonga NUEVA. Wow! It's been an unbelievable ride.

Many thanks to these four lovely ladies, to our venue hosts through the first 100, Vicky, William and Fernanda, to all the fabulous DJs, and to all of our volunteers throughout the years! Much love to you all!!!!

BIOGRAPHIES ::

Gabriel and Melanie have been the resident tango teachers at Montreal’s tango school \"Air de Tango\" since 2010.

02.06.15Milonga NUEVA ♥ Feb 6th ♥ DJ Burak ♥ Adam & Tilly

February is the month of LOVE, and what better way to celebrate than a steamy night of tango at Milonga NUEVA!? Deck yourself out in the colors of the season -- Red, Pink, Black & White -- and join us for a beautiful evening of dancing.

Also, Boston's very own, the lovely Tilly Kimm and her partner, the suave Adam Cornett are back from Buenos Aires and will be in town for a few weeks teaching at MIT and taking privates before they head off on their next adventure! We are very excited to announce they will be performing for us at Nueva this month!

And if that isn't quite enough, DJ Burak "El Turco" from Turkey via Montreal will be curating the music! Can you believe it!?

Also, you can expect some chocolatey goodness to top off the tango-trifecta!

01.02.15Milonga NUEVA • Jan 2nd • DJ Max Stasi • The Party Continues!

We start the new year on a very high note! I’m very excited and honored to have Max Stasi from Milan (yes, all the way from Italy!) DJing the first Milonga Nueva of 2015! For those who are not familiar with his work, Max regularly DJ's in festivals and milongas all around the world including Berlin NouTango, Hamburg 'TangoJam', Mattstedt Tango Marathon, Mannheim 'Maratango', San Francisco 'El Abrazo', New York 'TangoCafe', Switzerland 'Amitango', and Toronto ‘Tango Experience’. The backbone of his work is the music of the Golden age, with frequent detours towards the orchestras of the Guardia Vieja and of the early 1950s.
Oh, one more thing, he’s also a very good dancer and super nice guy! Please join me in welcoming him to Boston!

12.05.14Milonga NUEVA • Dec 5th • OST • DJ Adam

The next edition of Milonga Nueva might be the most unique one to date! Not only will Nueva be held at a different location for the first time ever, it will have new hosts (for one night only that is. Maria and I plan to return in January.  ). This month’s Nueva will be held at Dance Union (our temporary home until we find a new venue) and your hosts will be none other than (drum roll please)… Orquesta Sin Trabajo! Yes, OST will be back in Boston! They will not only be hosting the event, but they are also having a special concert before the milonga starting at 7:30 AND will do a live set during the milonga! Don’t miss it!
For more details regarding the concert, please visit their event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1597619257128601
Also a first is your DJ for the evening. Adam Cornett from Portland, Oregon will be the man playing that sweet, sweet music! Adam is an accomplished tango dancer and teacher who knows that what inspires dancers to dance all night long is irresistible music. When he DJs he extends his own love of tango music to the dancers by playing through the full spectrum of musical experience, giving limitless opportunity for expression. His sets are always fresh, with a well-mixed combination of beloved classics as well as the lesser-played gems. He has been honing his DJing skills for over a decade. With that kind of experience, I’m sure your evening will be divine!

Also, this month we're hosting a Tango Tag Sale, organized by Sheila Erimez - so please bring any tango shoes/clothes/accessories you'd like to sell, plus extra cash/your checkbook so you can buy stuff. :)

Here's how it works:

2) Put your items on display in the blue room (next to the main room). There will also be a spot for items you want to give away for free.
3) To buy an item, give the cash to Sheila, who will put it in an envelope marked with the seller's name.
4) At the end of the night, collect your envelope from Sheila, gather any of your unsold items, and enjoy your cold, hard cash!

As many of you already know, we have a new edition to the Nueva team! :P The lovely Maya Maxine has joined Maria and I, and will be making her debut as co-host at this upcoming Nueva! What an event it’s going to be!

For starters, it will be a themed event. We will travel back in time to the golden age of tango (1935-1955). I’ll be your DJ for the evening, providing some of the best music from that period! Men, put on your suits and accessorize with handkerchiefs, silk scarves, and fedoras*. Women, cocktail dresses with lots of accessories will do the trick (think Duchess of Windsor Wallis Simpson and her pearls). Bonus points for hair styling and hats*! Of course, proper dress is not required, but highly encouraged! :)

*Oh, by the way, if you decide to dance with a hat, just be mindful of your partner and others around you, alright? Thanks! ;)

In celebration of the Golden Age fashion, Seneeca Wilson of Seneeca Wilson E-Clas (Eclectic closing line and styling design group) will dazzle us with a fashion show: "Return of the female form", displaying her creations specifically made for tango dancers!

Also, we just want to remind everyone that Nueva is typically a category 5 milonga and is not to be underestimated. ;-) There will be plenty of water there (for drinking) and a few of you might get soaked (from dancing all night), but don’t worry, our team will make all the necessary preparations to ensure that you’re comfortable, safe, and having fun!

Sheila
