Happy holidays.  With classes on hiatus until the new year, our Monday practica at Jacobs still offers a chance to dance.

Our next milonga and workshop will be Saturday, Jan. 7, with Marcelo Solis, our first guest instructor 10 years ago. He taught many years in the Bay Area.  A finalist in the 1994 national traditional stage championship and finalist in 2110 Buens Aires salon dance style in Buenos Aires 2010, he offers "Dancing from Buenos Aires".

He will partner Olga Mateeva, with a strong background in classic ballet, modern and ballroom dance.  She travels regularly to Buenos Aires to dance and continue studying, has worked with teachers Alicia Pons, Nestor La Vitola, Monica Paz, Enriqueta Kleinman  and Jorge Kero.
