Start your weekend off right by joining us at TONIGHT’S weekly práctica at 7:30 PM ($5). Here students of all levels can practice what we learned this week in class. If you’re still new to tango, you can come to the Beginner lesson that starts at 6:30 PM.

There are no local milongas this week, but feel free to take your tango on the road. Tango Wilmington is hosting a weekend with the Tami Trio of Buenos Aires featuring live music and dancing on the UNC Wilmington campus. Visit their website for more information.

As always on Sunday, we rest up for the intermediate (exploring close embrace) and Advanced (petite boleos) classes on Monday.

This Weekend in Tango, September 12-15, 2013

This weekend in tango is our favorite weekend because we host Milonga Utopia on Saturday, September 14 from 9 PM to 2PM ($10). This month features the renown DJ, Rick Kim who brings an intoxicating mix of music to stimulate the connection of masculine and feminine in the dance. Rick Kim started in Charlotte and moved to the DC area, so he’s sure to bring a good crowd. We also have our usual yummy munchies and sparkling door prize.

You can brush up on the techniques you learned in class by attending the weekly práctica TONIGHT at 7:30 ($5), which begins immediately after the Beginner class. We’re only in class #2, so you still have time to start learning tango.

Intermediate and Advanced students will continue their lessons in close embrace and boleos on Monday.

You may sign up for these events at our Meetup site and like Tango Utopia on Facebook for the latest news.
