Cambridge Milonguero Weekend
with Ricardo Viqueira
in Cambridge, by Tangueando
In our continuing devotion to enriching tango in Cambridge and bringing the Argentine tango culture to the East of England and especially the Cambridge tango scene, Tangueando arranged an exclusive visit in Cambridge of this well-known milonguero and tango teacher from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
In his second, exclusive visit to UK, Ricardo visited Cambridge where he gave a number of tango, milonga and vals workshops and a Tango seminar.
Have a look at his background and some of the videos we selected for you:
Ricardo is known for his ease, elegance, musicality and masterful footwork as well as for being a passionate and inspiring teacher. Ricardo will bring us closer to the reality of the Buenos Aires milongas and the milonguero culture.

Ricardo Viqueira is a "milonguero porteño" and his connection to tango has deep roots. In his teaching Ricardo emphasizes the close embrace style and the roles of the axis and connection. He teaches his students how to recognise opportunities to change direction, develop the ability to dance in small or crowded spaces, and to create their own personal dance.
Being a milonguero, Ricardo does not beat around the bush. His teaching is all about dancing in the milonga.
He is one of the most respected and sought-after teachers in Buenos Aires where he regularly teaches and in the rest of the world is well known exponent of the "milonguero" culture.
Ricardo is renowned for dancing Milonga with Traspié and Canyengue. He was the man behind the revival of the historic and well known Club Sin Rumbo in the neighbourhood of Villa Urquiza. He also organized the Cristal Tango in Avenida San Martin in Buenos Aires.
He has been invited to teach in Italy, France, Spain, Germany, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Switzerland, Brazil, the United States, Korea and China and this was his second, exclusive visit in the UK!
