Milonga on the Hudson at Hudson Dance Studio in Edgewater, New Jersey is 2nd and 4th Friday Tango dance party.
The owners are German and there are many Russians in the neighborhood, so the milonga has a European feeling. There are regular groups of Argentines, Colombians, and other South Americans.
The room is large with beautiful chandeliers, nightclub lighting, and a lovely view of a yacht harbor. The floor is big so you can fly without causing any conflict. The floor tends to be a little on the slippery side, so bring shoes for that.
There is no “El Muro,” the wall were people sit when they want to dance. The action is in the corner next to the DJ booth and refreshments. The level is intermediate and beginner with a core of advanced and professional dancers.
The arrogance of the New York milongas is completely absent. It’s really a joy to dance at the Hudson Milonga.
Come whether you dance or not. We sit down together and laugh all night.
8.15-9.00pm: Pre-Milonga Class (All levels)
9.00pm-12.00am: Milonga party
