Encuentro. An Encuentro is a series of chained Milongas with breaks in between them over the course of a weekend, from Fri Night to Sunday afternoon. The Milongas or “Salons” usually last about 6 hours each with small breaks for refreshments and to refresh one’s clothing. The style of dance at these events could loosely be construed as ‘Milonguero’, or Close Embrace dancing where there are no Boleos, Ganchos, Volcadas, or Colgadas that take up space in the line and lane of dance. Lane and Line of dance are respected, and the Male Cabeceo is respected and encouraged. See Article link below.
