Upcoming MDC: 17 July 2010

We start to have Milonga del Corazón because our hearts are truly in tango. We'd like to offer a space where people in Hong Kong can experience the milongas in Buenos Aires - dancing in a cosy place with traditional tango music. We may not be able to offer grand and historical dance hall that like Salon Canning and Niño Bien, but we pay the greatest respect to the classical music like most milongas in Buenos Aires do. We carefully arrange and select the most danceable music in our milonga, as we believe that one of the keys to understand tango is to dance with the most sophisticated music in the tango history. We wish you enjoy dancing in our milonga, and experience the unique sensations that derived from embracing with the tango music from the golden era. 我們開始辨 Milonga del Corazón 是因為我們真的心愛探戈。我們希望在香港提供一個可以體驗布宜諾斯艾利斯milonga的地方﹣在有傳統探戈音樂的舒適氣氛下跳舞。我們或許不能提供像Salon Canning 或 Niño Bien那種有氣派有悠久歷史的舞池,但我們像布宜諾斯艾利斯大部份Milonga一樣十分尊重傳統的探戈音樂。我們精心安排和挑選最適合跳舞的音樂,因為我們深信要了解探戈其中之一的關鍵便是跟探戈歷史中最有深度的音樂跳舞。我們希望你喜歡在我們的Milonga跳舞,並體會到擁抱經典探戈音樂所帶來的奇妙感覺。 Emily and Coleman

Who are they? Hung-Yut (Leonel) grew up in Hong Kong but spent most of his adult life in the United States. He met Hwaiy (Florencia) in Korea in 2005, soon thereafter they began their partnership. Together they are very active in promoting Argentine Tango culture in Korea. They regularly teach, perform, and organize milongas in Seoul and other Korean cities. In May 2009 they started organizing the annual Seoul Tango Festival, which attracted over 200 Korean and 70 international dancers.For more information about them and their tango activities, please visit http://www.leoyflor.com/.

Hung-Yut and Hwayi understand the frustration of learning Argentine Tango. There are many great Argentinian masters, their dance is amazing, but they all tell us different things and sometimes they even contradict each other.
Hung-Yut and Hwayi understand because they went through the same process. They took classes from visiting teachers, they practiced in practicas, they watched videos and they stayed up late at night taking about tango with their friends. And like a good number of us, they learned Spanish and went to Buenos Aires multiple times.

Eventually they have arrived at a tango that they can comfortably enjoy with Argentinians and non-Argentinians alike. They have been sharing their experiences with the Korean tango community with success, and they would like to share the same with you.
