What happens to solo ladies without partners during the Buenos Aires tango lesson?  Are they left standing on the sidelines like wallflowers at a college mixer?  Just asking!

 No, the lesson is given by a couple and then the man and woman dance with several travelers. You can sit it out if you want to, but will have a chance to dance.

 Ours was similar. It was a group lesson where we all mimicked the leaders steps, then we broke up into twos to practice holding hands at arms length.  There was no dancing "cheek to cheek."  After our lesson, we watched the people who had come to the milonga to dance which was much more interesting than doing the lesson.  If you sit toward the back of the room, you can watch to your hearts content; but if you sit up front, you will probably be asked to dance by a local.  The milonga itself is worth exploring, its a 1920's building with two floors.  The dancing was on the second floor.  We were there just a few hours and the atmosphere was so nice, we wish we could have stayed longer!

Thanks, Luisa and Esther.  Is the milonga the place where you had your lesson?  What about the optional dinner and tango show?  Same place?  Different?  Worth doing?
