First Sunday of every month. 6:30-10-30 pm.
Traditional music. Extraordinary fun.
1027 N Forest St, Bellingham, WA.
TangoLife Milonga began in May, 2010, as a way of bringing my tango-dancing friends from all over the Pacific Northwest into one grand celebration of happy embraces. The plan was to bring in the best regional traditional DJ’s to the most elegant venue, buy white tablecloths, get lots of wine and food, encourage cabeceo and good line of dance (literally with games and prizes in the beginning!), have a great sound system, and have all my Bellingham tango friends invite out of towners to come join us. Plus, I throw in a mixer tanda at half-time to welcome our visitors.
And there are themes, which are wonderful and silly and sometimes poignant, and bring us all together. And that’s the main reason I host this milonga. Lo and behold, it has all worked, and dancers of all levels drive over an hour repeatedly to our humble village to dance in the arms of friends, old and new. I hope you will join us, too!

DJ VINYL JIM DICKINSON of Bellingham
This year TangoLife is celebrating the world’s beautiful cultural diversity through our monthly themes. Continue the tour with us!
BRAZIL may be the most F-ing country we celebrate on the TangoLife tour this year. Every photo I find is filled with feathers, flora, fruit, fringe and fantasy*! And some very hot femme fatales! From Carmen Miranda to that Girl from Ipanema (not to mention those frilly fillies in the Rio de Janeiro Carnival parades!), this is a country that knows how to PARTY! While wearing a headdress! So grab some of those “* five F’s” as you rummage through your costume treasures, and adorn yourselves fabulously for a very colorful NIGHT IN RIO!
To add even more musical sparkle to our evening, DJ Jim Dickinson will be LITERALLY SPINNING traditional tandas from his extensive collection of restored vinyl tango RECORDS. Jim has been a guest DJ at the Valentango Festival in Portland for several years, and annually at TangoLife since 2010. The warm sound quality really is amazing! And Jim’s surprise Brazillian cortinas will have you singing “Chica Chica Boom Chic” all the way home.
