Grande Milongas & Tango University with Horacio PBT Godoy
Probably every Tango dancer who visited Buenos Aires has memories of La Viruta – the legendary milonga located in the district of Palermo. This must-go-to Milonga is filled with Tango students till midnight and turns into the meeting point for international dancers & local milonguer@s alike. The special combination of endless nights spent dancing till 6am on the huge dancefloor, filled with hundreds of dancers, all embraced closely dancing to passionate Tango music, the famous last tanda and fresh media-lunas with „café con leche” after 4am – all this makes you fall in love with Tango again and again. This huge dark basement in the building of the Armenian Cultural Centre is also an important institution for popularizing Tango in Buenos Aires. La Viruta is known as an important school where hundreds of people join the tango classes for all levels. Mastermind and charismatic host of the milonga is Horacio „El Pebete“ Godoy – unique teacher, virtuoso dancer, passionate historian of Tango, music producer of and a fantastic DJ. The team of Intimacy Berlin invites him to bring the spirit of La Viruta Tango Club for the second time to Europe. In 4 fomaous venues in Berlin we will celebrate 4 nights with Horacio Godoy as co-host and main DJ. He will be supported by the Berlin-based DJs Guillermo Monty, Michael Rühl and Ala Malisa, added by Mona Isabelle for the Saturday night second Floor for Neo-Tango.
Like the original, La Viruta Tango Club Berlin offers seminars before the milongas by maestro Horacio Godoy and his partner Cecilia Berra. This intense Tango University with 8 Seminars in 4 Days is focused on musicality and history of Tango.
A special highlight will certainly be their main show of Cecilia and Horacio on Friday night in the amazing historical venue of Ballhaus Pankow. The Opening night will host the show of Berlin Maestras Mimi Hirsch and Özgur Arin. Saturday we present Celeste Medina and Andres Sautel. For the final night we have the first Festival-Show of the raising Tango-Stars of Berlin Dilara Ögretemen and Francesco Chiesi.
