What's New


Bulletin, Nov. 10, 2008

Patrick continued his rotation with serious work on ganchos. He plans to introduce  beginners to cross system Saturday.  Cross system, both partners using the same leg, is unique to tango; other social dances want partners to mirror each other. We hope to see more of you in class as the month progresses.


MONDAY - Tonight, Nov. 10 & 17, Social dancing and practica at Jacobs, 8 p.m., 2501 McHenry Avenue.  A good place to practice class material.  No fee, but you are urged to order food and/or drink off the menu.  Some go early to eat.
SATURDAY - Nov. 15 - Classes with Patrick Alessandri at Modesto Fitness and Racquet Club, 200 Norwegian Avenue.  11 a.m. Beginner level, noon intermediate level, 1-1:45 p.m. guided practica $12 per class.  Practica only $5. One time only introductory packages of nine beginner level lessons for $75 available.
