Yesterday and today at La T: history, our milongas, and our phylosophy.

A BIT OF HISTORY

La T was born as little sister of other main milonga in Malmö, Loftet, that run every sunday until its closing up at the end of 2012,  after ten years of great success by reuniting dancers not only from Skåne, south of Sweden, but from all country and even from abroad.

At the time of its creation, 25 August of 2009, La T was a practica named La Orillera, honouring "orillas" the borders between the city and the countryside in Buenos Aires at the starting of tango around 1850. 
Orillera means who exists  in the borders.
La Orillera was thought as a place with relaxed athmosphere, more like a social meeting point among friends. Meantime, its related week-end place, Loftet, was a real milonga.
La Orillera was growing slowly, and on 7 september of 2010 became a real milonga and changed its name to La T.

OUR PHYLOSOPHY:

Following the same spirit of Loftet, La T inherited the same open minded vision about tango, by sympathizing with all the dance styles, all periods and orchestras and tango nuevo music.
La T promotes the idea of integration,  because is part of a multicultural city as Malmö and  was created  by a non swedish tango dancer.
Our perspective of tango includes largerly its social and popular dimension.

In this friendly athmosphere everybody dances, the very young dancers and  those very old ones.
All are welcome, begginers as much as proffesionals.
Our philosophy values everyone´s passion for tango, and not hierarchies in any way, neither the level of dancing.

What it counts for us is if you love tango.
