The DJ workshop will give you insights into the aspects of the DJ’s role in playing music for Argentine tango dancers in a traditional music milonga from a veteran DJ with over 20 years experience playing for partner dancers, 17 years experience playing for tango dancers and a graduate of the Broadcasting Institute of Maryland. Topics discussed will include sound quality and equipment needed for a milonga, DJ software, DAC sound cards, “golden age” orchestras and top music for social dancing, crafting coherent tandas for social dance, tanda selection for keeping the dance floor full and energized, DJ’ing “in the moment” versus using a playlist, cortinas & timing and ending the milonga. Questions will be encouraged throughout.
