Kenny & Choi, returned on Saturday, Nov. 22  See a summary of the material covered in class in This Week's Video.  They will return again on December 13 - In  the meantime, next week's class is cancelled as it is the Thanksgiving Day weekend.  See you all back on December 6, when we work on material covered by Kenny and Choi.

Next year we have some exciting events early on.  In late February we have Eva & Pablo back, practitioners of traditional milonguero style.  In March we have a return of the Redwood Tango Ensemble, so much to look forward to - stay tuned.

Until later, Mary
