This Weekend in Tango, April 10-13, 2014

Jae is BACK! So start the weekend off right by coming to TONIGHT’s Advanced class at 6:30 PM, followed by the weekly práctica at 7:30 PM ($5). Let’s come out so Jae can share the tango techniques she’s brought back from Buenos Aires.

Of course, this weekend is also our favorite weekend in tango because we host Milonga Utopia on Saturday, April 12th from 9 PM to 2 AM ($10). This is our Spring Fling Milonga where we celebrate the warmer weather, blooming blossoms, dazzling dresses, and the birthday of Tango Utopia lady, Pamela. Our DJ for the evening is Cecil Ho who always brings the tandas that put a spring in our steps. We will have our usual yummy munchies and sparkling door prize, too.

Also, you still have time to sign up for our Monday tango classes for Beginners (7:00 PM) and Intermediates (8:30 PM).
