    Patrick conducted two fun classes last Saturday, and in keeping with his lesson we will be working on molinetes this coming week.

    Our next milonga will also be the last one for the year.  Mark your calendar for  Friday, November 7, for an informal milonga which includes no guest artist or introductory lesson.  Just a chance to eat, drink, socialize, and of course, dance tango.


    Until later, Mary

    Modesto Tango is a non-profit association of tango aficionados dedicated to sharing artistic, cultural and social aspects of Argentine tango.
