Everything Changes

Everything changes in the Tango World, the sub-culture I seek out in each city I visit. On my last visit to Buenos Aires in January of this year I saw this again. There were new milongas, and some I’d frequented the year before were now gone. One, Milonga Bicycleta, was tiny the year before; now it’s very popular indeed. Pepa and Chino’s Sunday milonga at Villa Malcolm has also exploded in popularity, due mainly to Pepa’s lead in soliciting a series of great dancers for the exhibition. The same changing scene can be observed and experienced in Portland, my local tango barrio. Here one can dance every day if one chooses at a milonga or practice in addition to many classes being offered. Tonight is the first Tuesday of the month and I may choose between a class from my favorite beloved teacher, Alex Krebs, a regular Tuesday practice with traditional music, and a new once-a-month totally alternative milonga located in a bike shop. The hunger for tango experiences is growing all over the world. Its a great time to be involved in tango. I only wish I could be in three places at once tonight, but since I cannot……..I think I’ll choose the bike shop venue and go exploring!

Pastor Bunny went on sabbatical leave to Argentina July 28-November 4, 2010, funded by a pastoral renewal grant from the Lily Foundation. It was her second visit to AR. Since then she's been back three more times and toured the country. She loves the Argentine people as much as the tango and calls Argentina her other home.
