    The one big item this week is that there will be no Practica at Urbanos this Tuesdayas they are having a special after-show event for Los Angeles Azules who will be performing at the Gallo Center. So all go enjoy a Mardi Gras Event. Hope to see you all back at Urbanos on Tuesday, Feb. 20.

    We have Marcelo Molina returning to us on Feb. 24 to do a couple of workshops. He was well received last time he was here, and he so enjoyed our group that he wanted to come back. So save the date. He teach an all level workshop at 11 am, and one at a more intermediate level at 12:30. Cost of one class $25, both classes $40

    He was two time champion in the stage division of USA tango championship, and had also placed at the Tango World cup in Buenos Aires, representing Cordoba, Argentina.   You may want to enjoy some videos of Marcelo's dancing. Two videos in This Week's Video:

    Molina and Vazquez, 2011 Argentine Tango USA Championship, Stage Winners!


    Dancing in a style that might be suitable for the social dance floor, and: 

    Marcelo Molina Tango


    definitely more suited for the stage, many other videos available as well. 

    Until later, Mary
