This Weekend in Tango, September 25-28, 2014

The last class in this month’s Advanced class  begins tonight at 6:30 PM, followed by the weekly práctica from 7:30-10:00 ($5). There are no milongas this weekend, so stop by TONIGHT to get your tango fix.

On Monday, we continue with our Beginners class at 7 PM. In the Intermediates class at 8:30 PM, we will continue working with those moves from the Oscar Casas workshop. We’ve got a few more classes and have enjoyed seeing your progress thus far.

As always, we encourage you to like Tango Utopia on Facebook for our latest updates and join the Triangle Tango Yahoo Group to keep pace with everything tango in the Triangle, including the Sunday guided práctica.

See you on the dance floor!
