MILONGA PASIONAL is a Tango School that hosts & promotes Argentinian Tango in Athens and other cities in Greece, since 2003. It is mostly known as the biggest open-air Milonga in Greece that takes place every Saturday during Summer on the terrace of Polis Art Café. Through dance classes, seminars, milongas & educational trips to Buenos Aires, we have become a site of attraction for many tango aficionados. We provide a teaching space for the development of the technique and dancing skills of our students. A place of diffusion of the culture that Argentinian tango represents. Mrs. Katerina Chatzidaki is the main teacher, event organiser and responsible for the dancing classes. She has been taught by Argentinian teachers in Greece & Buenos Aires. She loves to transmit the spirit & technique of tango as it is experienced traditionally in Argentina. Milonga Pasional also has valuable partners for the music, the teaching, the school & events organisation.
