La Monita is Seattle’s Wednesday night practica held from 9:00pm-12:00am at the beautiful Om Culture studio. It is very spacious with an ambiance of warmth and absolute informality. La Monita is the place to practice, play and create tango or just chill and drink tea. We’ve got beautiful mirrors, snacks, teas, bean bags, couches, a stellar sound-system etc. From absolute beginners to future rockstars, all are welcome.
La Monita also organizes weekly all-level tango classes. Our curriculum is adopted from that of the 8th Style School of Tango, and aims to build a solid tango foundation and giving students the most effective tools to start dancing right away.
We also organize workshops with local and traveling instructors. Check the Workshop section or Home Page for more announcements.
But what is ‘La Monita’ ? We have heard several translations ranging from ‘sexy girl’ to ‘sweetheart’ to ‘the little monkey’ and we are cool with any of these. The name reflects the relaxed yet suave nature of our practica. Come join our team – Jason Meredith, Neeraj Korde and Sarah Huntting – in practicing our Tango and dancing in this warm, inviting and spacious location.
