What is a practilonga?
A practilonga is a PRACTICA (practice) in a MILONGA (social dance) format. Practilongas help dancers transition from practicas to milongas.
The milonga is like a secret club with subtle rules (codigos). One rule is: No teaching at the milonga. That makes it tough for dancers to learn what happens at milongas and why. So, a practilonga is the place to learn about milongas and ask questions.
