Who is Ruben Milonga. A tango dancer, teacher, and historian from Buenos Aires. Ruben 'Milonga' was born and grew up dancing tango in the neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. Ruben is an ‘old guard' milonguero and respected historian of tango who brings a wealth of experience and information about tango styles, music and customs to his classes. He is widely-known as a very generous and precise teacher, and exciting dancer. His knowledge is vast, his embodiment of the tango deeply passionate and original. Ruben's classes focus on musicality, balance, connection, simplicity and economy of movement as needed on crowded dance floors.

Information, registration (and the author of this text): Igor Polk, 510-582-8711,, 510-610-8711. Ruben was dancing tango when I was not born yet. I have attended many Ruben's classes and I was always overwhelmed by quality and intensity of his teaching. Here is what I wrote about Ruben in 2005: " I took all of Ruben's lessons ..and I got complements from my partners right away - I dance better. His knowledge is very deep, very systematic. He builds perfect workshops packed with material and great performance. ..I was looking for such a teacher for years! "
