Twilight Milonga (formerly Oasis tango)
Atlanta�s only mixed music milonga (tango dance)..
Beginner Friendly early evening (tango class at 8PM)..
I remember dancing being uncomfortable, but that was back when I
didn't have a clue what to do.. The uncomfortable feeling was replaced
by fun from my very first dance lesson.
Dancing is probably the best hobby we can have.. Have fun, get
exercise, and meet friends all in one go.. Learn to dance and you will
never think of going to a singles dances ever again..
We announce TWILIGHT TANGO on several lists, plus dancers from the
tango community show up.. We get 15-25 people.. This is not a crowded
or loud nightclub environment..
Typically guys lead, but we are a modern group, so any gender can lead
or follow by choice, rather than by gender dictation. Changing lead
and follow roles is always OK as a modern idea, just for fun, or to
improve your dancing. Everyone is welcome at Oasis tango..,
This not about spending years of hard work becoming a great dancer..
There will always be dancers just as bad.. or as good as you are on
the dance floor, and we all tend to become part of a circle of dance
friends before you know it.. This is actually about getting the dance
bug and having a good time at the dance socials, which is easy to do
because dancing is fun from the very first lesson..
Dancing is the quintessential perfect way to mingle.. The magic
happens when you (me, anyone) is havining a good time, because this is
when we are the most attractive to others, by being in our element,
and in the zone.
I suggest just showing up even if the meetup RSVP doesn't look so hot,
because most people who show up are tango dancers from the tango
community (and are not on meetup). Twilight milonga is a small dance
night of 20-30 dancers (I don't want anyone to expect more and be
disappointed).. $10 buys a tango lesson, the milonga, and light snacks..
EXAMPLE of modern tango dance: ,
All classes are beginner friendly, but all levels are welcome, and you
do not need a partner.. Practice on your own, or join our class. Shoes
should be able to pivot on the floor (not be too sticky).. Rotating
with the class is always optional, but recommended. ,

Decatur, Ga 30030
*** This is less than a mile from the Decatur square, with parking at
the door. Take College Ave (Dekalb Ave, same thing), towards Little 5
points.. Less than a mile down on the right (look for Thinking Man
Tavern, at a light, on your right).. Located in a parking lot behind
DECATUR FOOD REVIEW:
The last year or so I have sampled several restaurants around the
decatur square.. Here is my opinion.. Please share with the group if
you like a place around the square (email me)..
I have heard the Iberian pig and the thai place are both good (both
near CORE) (but havent been to either).. Sweet Melissas is good too
(hamburgers, etc, normal food at normal prices)..
*** Good and affordable.. I had the chicken teriyaki several times,
and it was great every time, and so was the soup and salad ($10.50)..
I had a iced green tea that was good too.. Location, next to CORE
studio on the square..
Everyone else loves it, I didnt.. Lots of beer.. Location, next to
PARK at the door.. This place has the best teriyaki IMHO.. More
expensive than sushi avenue: chicken and shrimp teriyaki was about
$15, plus $2 for the miso soup.. I usually go here because its damn
good.. However, I did have bad chicken one time (tasted funny)..
Located in the big parking lot behind the CVS (as you drive around the
FROYOLO is on the square near the gazebo..
And I was told yogurt-tap makes their own. Near java monkey coffee
(church and ponce).. Easier parking than the square..
