Milonga Qilombo

Saturday, September 25

We are so thrilled to welcome back Guest DJ Craig Herrington from Cleveland. He’s an amazing DJ whose beautiful tandas I have enjoyed dancing to very, very much. Also, he was the DJ for our last huge pre-pandemic event: the milonga featuring La Juan D’Arienzo on February 29, 2020. After an extremely challenging year and a half for everyone, it feels really amazing to welcome Craig back to Philadelphia this month.

9 pm-1 am or later: Milonga Qilombo featuring DJ Craig Herrington

Class + Milonga: $25

The Long Table Weekend

October 16 & 17

Women, non-binary individuals and LGBTQIA+ are invited to join us for a weekend of discussions, movement experiences and social dancing aimed at re-imagining tango’s past, present and future to better represent the diversity of the people who dance it.

The weekend is conceived of and presented by Phi Lee Lam, in collaboration with the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School.

One of the main mechanisms for this exploration is The Long Table, a format for discussion, theatricality and public engagement created by Split Britches.

In addition to two Long Table discussions, the weekend features an experiential movement workshop and practica with live music by Heyni Solera (bandoneon) and Teagan Faran (violin).
