Open Eye Milonga – Sept. 19th

Join us at this cozy venue for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine or a piece of delicious dessert or a combination thereof and dance some tango while we’re at it. This month John Singletary will debut as the instructor and DJ at Open Eye Cafe and Nancy Acuna will be welcoming you enthusiastically with a wide smile and a warm hug. As usual, the lesson before the milonga is FREE so this is the perfect opportunity to introduce a friend or family member to the reason you’re always out late on the weekends. Come wind down your week with us and escape to Argentina for two and half hours at the Open Eye milonga.

  • Date: Friday, September 19th, 2014
  • Free Introductory Lesson : 8.00 – 9.00pm
  • Milonga: 9.00 – 11.30pm
  • Admission for Milonga: $5

Raleigh Outdoor Milonga – Sept. 20th


Triangle Tango is once again very excited to announce that with the generosity of Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts and our very own David Karasiewicz, there will be a FREE milonga in Raleigh this Saturday, September 20th. Please note that unlike the first time, this milonga will be held in the afternoon from 3.00pm – 6.00pm. Jae of Tango Utopia fame will be putting together some of our favorite tandas that will keep us on the dance floor provided by David Karasiewicz.

As this event is going to be held on the grounds of the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts they ask that we not bring outside food or drinks. Refreshments are available for purchase at the concession stand within the Fletcher lobby.


P/S: If it rains, we’re still dancing.

Sunday Practica is back – starting Aug. 3rd

“The Sunday Practica” is back! Regular weekly Sunday sessions, from 3:00 until 5:00
(or later, if enough people show up), in Studio 5 at TDS. John Singletary will host
a guided practica with traditional and alternative music, opportunities to work on
dance structure and techniques, positive feedback, beginner to advanced levels
welcome. Leaders come and work on form, intention, embrace, and “that something
extra” which will set you apart as a positive, solid, and comfortable leader. No
formal attire needed: this is a time to work on the inner tango light and let it
shine at milongas later! Yes… better your tango and cap off your weekend with
great music and a happy tango body.

When: Sundays 3 PM to 5 PM (6 PM if enough people can come)

Where: Studio 5 (the Lindy Lab)

Cost: $5.00 per person

Who: Open to everyone, all levels!

What: Guided practica.

Why: To afford those who want to better their dance another opportunity to practice
and have their questions answered in a structured learning environment

Thank you, hope to see you there!

John Singletary
