Event | Maria Pałasz

Warsaw, Poland



In a beautiful time of May
we would love to share common tango passion
in a sweet, delicious atmosphere

We do not create secrets,
they grow naturally,
like a gentle fragile plant
entangling us in one embrace.

Let’s join our secret garden at the end of May!

In this sort of meeting, some 100-200 people take part. It is often a sequence of several milongas with breaks, in the same location, taking place over a weekend.

Music is taken care of by the best DJs who specialise in playing at encuentros. People from all over the world take part, liking to spend their time in this fashion; cultivating good manners and sticking to pre-agreed customs.

Encuenteros are characterised by holding your partner extremely close, using the mirada/cabaceo code, and the aim is to create a friendly shared space between those dancing (a good connection between pairs and smooth movement on the dance floor). While dancing, we are humble, try to avoid showing off, no showboating. We meet in order to create a shared dance and space – not to be gawked at.

This sort of meeting is a very traditional milonga, arising out of the milonga atmosphere from Buenos Aires
