Happy Bastille day says the group from Buenos Aires. Last night we went to our first milonga of the tour, and who should be there but Roberto Riobo. We, here, will be doing a different milonga every night - in Modesto we will have to wait till September.
The Video of the Week shows Gato & Andrea, who will headline our next milonga.


MONDAY - Tonight, July 14 & 21, Practica at Jacobs, Social dancing resumes, 2501 McHenry Ave. An informal chance to work on moves learned in class and get floor time. No fee, but you're urged to order off the menu. We start about 8 p.m.; some come early to dine. We may dance until 9:30 p.m.Frankie & Rick have agreed to be there while so many of us are in Buenos Aires.

SATURDAY - (All of July) - NO July Modesto Fitness and Racquet Club classes. Classes resume in August, with Patrick teaching. This may be a good time to check out classes out of town, Sacramento and the Bay Area.
