Is often danced at tango dance parties and is also a fast paced dance form.  The steps of Milonga are similar to tango, but somewhat simplified because of the constant movement of the feet and lack of pauses as in Argentine tango Milonga, which is also the name given to tango dance parties. This double meaning of the word milonga can be confusing unless one knows the context in which the word "milonga" is used.
NOTE: Unlike the social version of ballroom tango which has been standardized and relatively fixed in its style for decades now, Argentine tango is a constantly evolving dance form.  Argentine tango evolves on a social and musical level, with continual innovation in Argentina and in major tango centers elsewhere in the world and thus needs constant brushing up.
These innovations may offend some traditionalists who often debate about what can still be considered tango. However these innovations ensure they maintain relevance to contemporary culture and society along with keeping the basic essence of the dance form intact. Some teachers trained in the ballroom style are now trying to standardize Argentine tango and even use ballroom terms like Gold, Silver, and Bronze when describing their course of study. Such an attempt to standardize Tango is offensive to those who value the evolving nature of Argentine tango. So, there is mixed emotion on the evolution of Tango, where traditionalists feel it needs to be standardized while liberalists vote against standardization of Tango. Tango dancers usually meet at Milongas, held in Buenos Aires and many other major cities worldwide.
