Woah! What an awesome milonga at Studio 1924 yesterday! Congratulations to Count and Melissa for their successes. The music, dancing, attendance, ambiance, and vibe were all great yesterday!
Here are some of my favorite things happening at Studio 1924’s Twilight Milonga:
-There’s a new sheriff in town and his name is Count Glover. Count has been active in maintaining the quality of dancing at Studio 1924 during the Twilight Milonga. How might you ask? Aside from his charm, that attracts some of the best dancers in the area, he politely asks those who are making things miserable for the rest of us (teaching on the floor/talking super loud/dancing crazy) to politely stop it. Thank you Count!
-Who doesn’t like to see themselves looking all sexy? Melissa takes your photo while dancing, posts it on fb, and tags you. And I know all that is super time consuming. Some of my favorite dancing pictures are from her. Slip her some bills and you might get some extra attention from her lens. Thank you Melissa!
-Smart, young, good looking, talented, and broke. Students are many things, but rich isn’t often one of them. Studio 1924 has been kind enough to offer one of the best milonga experiences at the lowest cost ($5) to students in all of the bay area. Thank you Studio 1924!
-“I’m gonna pop some tags, only got $20 in my pocket….” Can you say Twilight Boutique?! I love the fact that Studio 1924 has brought in Yumiko to the milonga. In a world where everyone is often just out for themselves, it makes it feel so collaborative! Gives me hope for mankind. Yumiko opens shop during the milonga for those itching to get a little retail therapy. It is an incredibly valuable service to those looking for shoes/dance wear at a discount. A student of mine (who’s a student) got his first pair of tango shoes for $50. He was so desperate for dance shoes he was about to get pumas! His tango shoes look good. Really good. Watch out ladies. Thank you Yumi!
-Varied DJ’s. Pretty much everyone I know feels strong about what the DJ is playing, except for me. People love the music, hate the music, love the tandas, hate the order, can’t stand the mixture…All I care about is that the DJ isn’t terrible and that they have a little variety. As an aside, I like Yuling DJing a lot… so… Thank you Yuling!
So there you have it! Some of my favorite things about Studio 1924’s Twilight Milonga. Keep it up everyone!
