What Tangueros Say?

This event totally blew me out of my tango limits. It was so charged with energy! I danced nearly non-stop and had memorable tandas. There was magic, intensity, and smiles all over. How you (Ilona) do this is beyond me. But I never like to find out how magicians ply their craft either. I just like being amazed! –   

My very first Milonga: the performance & the dance class were FANTASTIC!!! Really liked the beer & food, too. Thank you Ilona. And now because of these great photos you take, I have the actual proof that I was really there. Can’t wait for the next one.

Thanks for the amazing milonga LAX! It was my favorite ever. The combination of the passionate music, the spacious floor, and the wonderful dancers made it really wonderful. 

Thank you so much for the amazing evening! I had a great time and went home with songs and happiness in my head, heart and soul! Looking forward to your next Milonga LAX!

I had the best time at Milonga @ LAX last night. I am a beginner dancer and this is a new world opening up to me. Thank you, Ilona, for all your hard work and dedication. 
The musicians were great and the dancers amazing!
