Hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving.  We return to our regular lesson schedule, although our Monday night practices are on hiatus until January.  Kenny & Choi  will   return again on December 13 and next week we will be working on the ocho cortado, which Kenny worked on two weeks ago,

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
