Wed Aug 10 I'll be the traditional DJ at Tango Cafe 10pm-1:30am
You Should Be Dancing & Club 412, 412 Eighth Ave, (bet 31st & 32nd Sts) 4th Fl.
Stay tuned for more teaching and dj tango nights with Lexa. Below is a review written by an anonymous tango dancer who frequents the NY milongas. I was so happy to receive this and even happier as I know and respect the couple's dance. The writer comes from "the long line of Anonymous and needs to remain thus."
nos vemos en las milongas
Lexa Rosean is one of the best - a small, elite coterie - DJs in New York City, My partner and I prowl the afternoon and night milongas seeking inspiration for our dance. Often finding nonstop rhythmic marching music, we leave disappointed. Lexa never disappoints. Not only does she offer the broadest range of Argentine tango music, she is present with the dancers in the best sense. She constantly takes the pulse the room monitoring energy, tone, temp and raising and lowering it with her selections, as appropriate. She draws from a vast library, assembled over many years, plays exciting combinations, gorgeous old romantic orchestras and some contemporary pieces that are challenging for the dance. We are always thrilled to see her hame as the DJ, and will follow her wherever she plays. We know if Lexa is the DJ, our dance will touch the stars.

it's been awhile since I posted here. I've been busy with otra cosas. I wanted to thank everyone who has supported my milongas and classes through the years. I'm taking a break this year from organizing, hosting, and teaching group lessons. I'll still be dj'ing here and there and will continue to teach my private students. After 16 1/2 years, I really needed to step back and come back around to tango for pleasure - not for work. I'll see you on the dancefloor.
