The All Night Milonga is an Argentine tango dance party at Stepping Out Studios in NoMad, Manhattan on the second and last Saturdays of the month.
A “Milonga” is an Argentine tango dance party. The All Night Milonga is one of America’s biggest and longest-running milongas (since 2001).
There is traditional tango in the main room and side room of alternative tango (club tango).
The party starts at 9:30 pm and goes until around 5am. There are usually performances at midnight. There is an Intermediate Tango Lesson at 9pm.
It’s $18 or $20 with the class. $15 for students with class (ID).
The All Night Milonga is NYC’s longest-running big Tango party
The NYC All Night Milonga was founded in 2001. It’s hosted by Sarah La Rocca.
It is one of the most successful milongas in the United States. It regularly hosts 200-300 dancers and is an important stop for visiting artists and DJs.
There are sort of two milongas. The main room is traditional and there is a smaller nuevo room. But the real difference is before and after midnight.
As in Buenos Aires, better dancers arrive late to take advantage of the more open floor.
The milonga stayed open until 4am on a recent visit. Dancers kept arriving through the night. Probably the best way to do the NYC All Night Milonga is all night.
