Holiday Milongas hosted by LexTango
The Performance Hall at Artsplace in downtown Lexington was once again transformed, with a lot of volunteer help. Our “stage hands” Dwight and Kelly barely had time to get home, change and come back as tango dancers! A special thanks to our out-of-towners who came to share this buttery smooth dance floor with us.
We snagged the Performance Hall for our annual Holiday milonga, and turned it in to a winter wonderland! Inside, warm embraces awaited those who braved the weather to come and celebrate the season with LexTango. Such terrible road conditions! Ice on the roads made for a treacherous drive. Thanks to all who helped with setup, teardown, and the yummy food!
Every year we explore a new venue for our annual Holiday Milonga. This year it was held at Safiya and Ken's beautiful studio off Broadway. Hosted for the 9th year in a row by Lu Ann and Kelly, special guest DJ Dave Crosley from Indianapolis kept us on our feet. A festive evening with great music and great energy! Judith out did herself setting up a beautiful spread of snacks. Lexington tango dancers were joined by dancers from Cincinnati, Louisville and Indianapolis. Ken some great photos of the evening. Check those out on Arabesque World Dance’s facebook album: https://www.facebook.com .
As usual, no 2nd Sunday in December. Instead we explored a new space for our Holiday milonga: Three O Studio, above Wines on Vines. Lots of new faces as well as our cherished "regulars"! White tablecloths, BYOB, festive snacks, and a super smooth dance floor. Thanks to the studio owners for being so easy to work with, and letting us in at 1:00 p.m. to start transforming the room into a dance salon. Here's an idea: make a new year's resolution to send Lu Ann some photos whenever they attend a milonga! Didn't get photos of dancers dancing, but here's a short video clip taken during a cortina:
More Holiday Milonga galleries coming soon…
