Bulletin, September 7, 2009 -

We start autumn by resuming regular lessons at our new location, Juline's School of Dance, 144 Woodrow . Sean will open the year with the beginner class at 11 a.m. There will also be a half hour absolute beginners class at 10:15 for $5.  If you know anyone who has wondered if tango is their dance, steer them to the studio at 10 a.m.  Meanwhile we hope to see increased attendance. Tango in Modesto depends on that.  Also, unless you go out of town for tango, you must wait until Saturday. Jacobs will be closed for Labor Day.
