Satur

day, March 1. classes will be at Jacobs Fine Dining, with a milonga that  evening.  Our guest artists are Argentine Tango USA stage category champions for 2011 & 2013.  Even though Marcelo Molina and Carolina Vazquez excel at stage tango, their classes are geared to social tango. The workshops will be at 2 and 3:30 at Jacobs, (rather than the studio) - $25 for one, $40 for both.




Marcelo & Carolina also will lead a pre-milonga introductory lesson at 7:30, followed by an 8:30 milonga   to go until midnight or until we give up the ghost, Dancing, however, will be interrupted at about 10:15 for a short  performance.  Any or all of this for $10.  It will also be possible to order food or beverage from the menu.


Until later, Mary

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