From Tango in New York to Belly Dancing in Detroit, this episode of the Fi2W podcast brings you our radio stories about dance in immigrant communities.
Tag: Tango in New York
While most of the city sleeps, a growing number of New Yorkers get together late at night to dance tango.
The tango parties are known as milongas, the Argentinean slang name for social tango dances born in Buenos Aires in the late 1800s. Two decades ago, only a couple of milongas existed in Queens. But today New York hosts up to five milongas any night of the week.
