Michelle’s class was heavy on technique drills and work on connection - the base of tango.  No class next Saturday, the studio in use for  fitness teacher training.  


We return Saturday, March 1. for workshops with the champions, one at 2 p.m., the other at 3:30 at Jacobs, rather than the studio. Marcelo Molina & Carolina Vasquez, Argentine Tango USA stage champions for 2011 and 2013, will conduct two workshops in the afternoon and perform at a milonga that evening. The cost of those classes will be $25 for one, and $40 for both.









Wednesday class is moved from 2:30 to 2:45 p.m.  The extra 15 minutes will give a pre-class film time to finish.  The classes will still be an hour long. 


Until later, Mary

Modesto Tango is a non-profit association of tango aficionados dedicated to sharing artistic, cultural and social aspects of Argentine tango.
