Orquesta Z

Argentine Tango Orchestra, and

Founder of Empanada Milonga presenting live music and performances




Celebrating 9 Years at St. Clement's Berkeley


Our Favorite Guest Tango Teachers


Sun October 9, 2022, 1:00 - 6:00 PM

This month we feature a  1-hour pre-milonga workshop with our favorite teachers from 1 PM - 2 PM




One of the very favorite teachers from Buenos Aires comes once a year to the Bay Area, and we are so pleased to have them guest teach an all-level class from 1 PM - 2:00 PM and also to demonstrate for us at our milonga.  We've known Diego since he started visiting the Bay Area annually for the past 20 years, and consider him a great friend of ourselves and the tango community.  With his wife and partner Alejandra, they have created a powerfully unique and friendly identity as great tango teachers for all levels of dancers.  Don't miss them...they are here only for a few more weeks in America.

Our milonga runs from 2 PM - 6 PM, four hours of the best recorded Argentine Tango curated by one of the Bay Area's best DJ's, Don An, who is also the host of the famed Dance Boulevard in San Jose.  As always we have our famous complimentary refreshments and Argentine wine at the sweetest afternoon venue at St. Clement's Hall at 2838 Claremont Blvd, Berkeley.

Please join our milonga, started by the non-profit Orquesta Z in September 2013 as we celebrate our 9 year of presenting the best of Argentine Tango in the Bay Area every 2nd Sunday of the month.
