      Tango Partner Needed

      Buenos Aires May 8, 2015 at 3:45 AM

      I'm a middle aged female traveling solo at the end of next month and into the first week of July. I'd like to take classes to meet other advanced beginners and I'd, also like to take private lessons to hone the subtleties of the dance. Can I get info ahead of time so I can make the arrangements/ plans? It seems it would help me select the right section of the city to book accommodations. I'd also like to hire a dance partner so I can dance at milongos. From my reading, it sounds like locals normally dance only with locals. Thank you for your help!
      Truly,
      Shari

      where to stay

      Buenos Aires May 28, 2015 at 10:22 PM

      I'm a single, American female traveling solo to learn tango in Buenos Aires. I plan to go to milangos which means I'll be staying out late at night. I'm not sure about which salons I'll be going to, so I'm not sure which sections of the city I should look for lodging that would be safe to travel to and from late at night. I welcome any suggestions. Thank you!

      Hire a tango instructor

      Buenos Aires May 9, 2015 at 9:48 AM

      Is it possible to hire an English speaking tango teacher for private lessons/ classes that I can schedule ahead of a visit to Buenos Aires? From my reading on the tango scene, it sounds like foreigners aren't taken into the fold as dance partners, so I'd have to take classes to get to know potential other foreigners to dance with if I want to dance at milangos. Is this an accurate assessment? I'm trying to weigh the value of traveling or not to BA for the purpose of really learning to dance tango.
      Thanks so much!

      Looking for music heard in La Quiaca

      by kettravels Online Now Apr 6, 2008 at 6:35 PM

      I was on a bus in La Quiaca last month and they were playing this soulful music, almost like a chant, reminiscent of quranic recitations but with a female vocalists. Why I didn't inquire at the time is beyond me ... now I'm trying to find out who this artist, presumably singing in quechua or aymara, might be. Any ideas anyone??
