Dear Tango Community,
I am so humbled and excited to be hosting this Milonga in honor of Mr. Carlos Gavito, the one who inspired me to dance Tango along with Marcela Duran.
Milonga Gavito is a dream come true. It’s goal is to gather everyone at Casa Escobar Bar and Restaurnat in the heart of Malibu by the ocean across from the Malibu pier—to celebrate life as one community dacning under the stars.
We are thrilled to have the one and only living legend, Marcela Duran, to be our guest of honor and our “Godmother” to inaugurate our Milonga Gavito. Known as “The Woman of the Tango”she is an icon of the Tango scene around the world. Marcela Duran, Internationally acclaimed as a master teacher and iconic performer of the Broadway show Forever Tango, she has increased viewer’s interest in learning the tango through her presence and style, an influential mentor of many argentine tango teachers and social dancers worldwide. She and her partner Carlos Gavito developed a dramatically close tango embrace in which both dancers leaned forward against each other.
