      Milonga Nights: «Milonga» is the name of both a kind of dance music and the event/place where people dance tango during the night. They are usually organized in bars, pubs, hotels, restaurants and also in some open air locals. Most of the people who come to a milonga try to dance with as many people as possible even though they don’t know each other. They generally dance at least 3-4 songs with each partner and they use the time between songs to chat and know the partner. In Madrid, there are more than 15 milonga nights each week. So, we’ll visit different milongas each time. (Starting from saturday-11th of October, we will go to a milonga each week in a different place and day).


·     Surprise «IE-Tango Club» shows: Before the summer holiday, we plan to perform in some special IE events, like we did last year in Global Village event! Performers will be the people joining to the classes during the year.   


·     SITGES TANGO FESTIVAL-July 2009:  Tango and the beach!!! One of the most famous tango festivals in Europe. Sitges is a small town near Barcelona where they organize this wonderful festival every summer.  It will be a nice opportunity for us to travel, dance and enjoy the summer!

The Gourmet Club organized on June 4th the third wine tasting in collaboration with Grupo Peñin and Bodegas Bretón. The tasting was dedicated to Rioja wine discovery and was driven by José Mª Ryan, Bodegas Bretón resident oenologist.

Bodegas Bretón

Founded in 1983 by local businessmen led by the Bretón Cata Bodegas Bretón Rioja 058.jpgfamily, its modern facilities can now be visited in Navarrete, where the «Loriñón» range is produced, alongside the top reds that gave the winery its good name, especially Dominio de Conté. The firm has a hundred hectares of its own vines located in Rioja Alta and currently manages 4 wine brands: Alba de Bretón, Pagos del Camino, Dominio de Conté and Loriñón.

The following wines were tasted:


1.- LORIÑÓN BLANCO FB 2007Cata Bodegas Bretón Rioja 011.jpg

2.- L5 DE LORIÑÓN 2005





Thanks to José Ryan’s explanations, the participants from 8 different nationalities had the opportunity to discover the differences between these wines of different maturity stages as well as from different terroirs and grape species. In addition, during the two hours, they were able to acquire the wine tasting techniques and were able to enjoy further more these magnificent wines. 

The Gourmet Club would like to thank Grupo Peñin, Bodegas Bretón and José Ryan to make this great event happen.


Salsa workshops, 6th of June

Escrito el 4 junio 2009 por Alumni en Affinity, Others

The IE Salsa Club, once again, proudly presents two new workshops:-


Saturday, 6th June, 4-6pm


Escuela de Baile Nacho


C/ Santa Isabel 9, Madrid, 28012<Metro> Anton Martin

Register Here Now

Workshop 1:  Intermediate «en linea»

Workshop 2:  Rueda Casino

We are moving it up a gear this time, so come and see how you manage!

We have chosen to get an instructor to give us a few pointers in «en linea».  This is a bit different to what you may be familiar with if you are from Latin America (except Puerto Rico) or are used to «Cuban-style».  It is the style that we find most danced here in Madrid and it will give you a chance to try something different.

The second workshop is in «Rueda Casino».  This a really fun form of salsa that is danced in a big group, where everyone dances the same steps, as called by the leader, and where everyone gets to change partners in time with the music.  It looks great!

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!!
