|Hi Smokey & Bandits, today's speech
BLLAAATTTT “Hmmm, I need to practice this one.”
“POLLY, that is noisy!”
“It's a flugelhorn Zippy”
“I'm going to talk about DANCING”
“OK, I'll play a POLKA!”
Today I thought I'd start on Milongas since we just had one. I had wondered what MILONGA means, I found a definition at: http://dance.about.com/od/danceglossary/g/Milonga. htm
Definition: A tango dance party. Milongas originated in Buenos Aires. During a milonga, three to five songs are played in a row followed by a short musical break to give dancers a chance to find new partners. Dancers who attends milongas are called milongueros or milongueras.
The term milonga also refers to a distinct style of tango. Milonga is a faster-paced and less complex form of tango. Milonga can also refer to a musical genre.
Also Known As: Tango dance party
Which now makes sense to me, as the first milongas were all birds dancing or learning to dance the TANGO. The first ones exist on the page called Milonga de Mangita. I was unable to figure out the Mangita, which would be little Manga. (Those cartoon things???)
THIS MEANS THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A GREYT BALLROOM IN THE CASTLE.
After moving to the current Milonga page, the parties started having themes. Often these themes reflect the 'holiday' of the month, such as Jan. is New Year, Feb. Valentine's, March St. Patrick's, July US independence, Oct. Halloween, Nov. Thanksgiving, Dec. Christmas etc. If you would like I can give a list of the themes I found soon. (Let me know, cause it would just be a list)
Thank you so much for your continued support. Your votes are keeping me working, hehehe.
