    I had my first taste of traspie _ a short, sharp sub-set of milonga _ tonight.

    According to Luis Bruni, here's an explanation of traspie:

    Among the different ways of dancing milonga there is the « Traspie ». It is a milonga where the dancer plays with the beat of the music, finding the pure essence of the milonga : the base of its rhythm is the candombé, an African rhythm from the Rio de la Plata region.

    It was great fun and very interesting to play with, but apparently there are many, many different types of milonga.

    Has anyone here had any experience with the other types of milonga? Which is your favourite?
