"We will show that there is also tango in Baku and it's good enough that our students will go with us, as well as dancing from other dance studios in the capital. This is not the first time that we visit milongas abroad. The tango in Baku is confidently moving forward, the number of dance schools is growing, and this shows the popularity of this kind of dance. It is very pleasant that we were invited to the festival," dancer said.
"I am glad that every tango studio in Baku started holding milongas in Baku. And a few times a week Azerbaijan's capital city hosts milongas at various venues, and all schools support each other. The experience, the skill of the children is growing, because the development takes place during the dancing evenings. And all the dancers besides the classes attend milongas and can represent tango from Azerbaijan in different countries of the world, " he added.
