Tango Utopia will once again be teaming up with Triangle Tango to present our third annual New Years Eve milonga! So mark your calendars and be ready to enjoy full family style homemade dinner complete with wine and champagne toast at midnight. And of course 7 + hours of wonderful dancing!

Price for the event is unbelievably reasonable $20 per person. Please join and celebrate with us for ringing in the new year Tango Utopia style!

This Weekend in Tango, November 26-30, 2014

We hope that you have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving day with your family and loved ones. There will be no practica tomorrow, but we invite you to join us for the milonga at Brandywine Cellars on Friday, November 28th from 9 pm to 1 am. The $10 price gets you in the door, a glass of wine, and 4 hours to dance off those Thanksgiving calories.

On Monday, December 2nd, we start the new series of classes for Beginners (7 pm) and Intermediates (8:30 pm). Each series lasts for 6 weeks (though January 5, 2015), but feel free to drop-in at any time. You may also attend the FREE practica from 8-8:30 pm. All classes take place at Triangle Dance Studios (2603 S. Miami Blvd., Durham, NC 27703). Directions can be found here­.

Thank you so much for your support of Tango Utopia classes and events. We hope to see you on the dance floor!
