    Polo returns on Saturday, March 28 to continue the work he began on walks to the rhythm.  In the second class he hopes to work on vals and milonga.  See the summary of last Saturday's lessons in This Week's Video


    Tonight our Monday night practica is held at Urbano on H Street, behind the Gallo Center.    As the floor is concrete, however, we recommend  avoid using suede bottom dance shoes, leather is best.

    Until later, Mary
