Music: Choice of music, smooth transitions, danceability
Ambience: Atmosphere, facilities (including dance floor), friendly organisers, sound quality
Getting a dance: Friendliness of dancers. Are there plenty of leaders offering dance invitations or is it a bit cliquish?
Are numbers right or are there usually more followers than leaders (or vice versa)?

    Something is seriously wrong when classes and a practica (Tango Garden) gets voted Best Milonga.

      Hi Chris, After the lessons there is a 3 hour dancing session promoted as an “informal milonga-like dance” where the cabeceo and cortinas are in use, there are dance floor rules and there is a large influx of experienced dancers. It feels and looks like a milonga and we think most dancers would regard it as one. There is a separate practice room for those who want to practice their moves.
