The Milonga in My Mind

I won't be dancing tonight due to the most gigantic pile of laundry in my room. Me 'n Ms. Wellspring are going to take Ney and Jennifer's workshops in Seattle over the weekend, so when I say I haven't a thing to wear, it's really the truth.

So I will just have to have a milonga in my mind today. I think I will dance to Caceres. I don't get enough of him.

In BA, I danced the best milonga in my life to this song. It was in a class taught by the Dinzel's, with a sweet young teaching assistant that all of us had a crush on. Every time I hear this song I think about how incredible that dance was. It was like flying.

El Flaco Dany y Silvina Valz...dancing to Juan Carlos Caceres' "Tango Negro"...

I had the thrill of dancing right behind (en la ronda) El Flaco at a milonga in BsAs...dancing a milonga...

And, I've had the pleasure of taking private lessons from Silvina...mmmm mmm mm...

What an awesome video! El Flaco & Silvina bring the song so completely to life I wanted to be there with everyone drinking it in.

Koolricky! I totally spaced on your question...I loved the Dinzels. I thought their classes were wonderful. And all of their teaching assistants were so generous and helpful, too. The studio is awesome.

Hi Caroline,

I agree. This is one to watch a lot.

Hi Mark,

I'm glad you enjoyed the video so much.
