Kenny Bell gave a couple of excellent lessons on Saturday. He worked some on Molinetes and forward ochos. We will continue work on those next Saturday as well as the step he gave us in the second class. Kenny returns to us again on October 21.

In November as we are planning a joint milonga with the folks in Sonora who have been working with Chooi, we will also be bringing back Tango Master Andrea Monti, who will be doing a couple of workshops for us and also performing with her partner Adrian Durso at the milonga, so mark your calendars for November 4.

The Wednesday class resumes. All systems go at this point


Until later, Mary

We will be starting off October with Kenny Bell returning to work a whole curriculum with us. Kenny continues to be one of most popular instructors who actually started out as a hip/hop dancer. He has been teaching and DJing at tango festivals all over the U.S. and brings a lot of energy with him.

In November as we are planning a joint milonga with the folks in Sonora who have been working with Chooi, we will also be bringing back Tango Master Andrea Monti, who will be doing a couple of workshops for us and also performing with her partner Adrian Durso at the milonga, so mark your calendars for November 4.

The Wednesday class for next week is cancelled as I will be away. Dennis will take over at the Tuesday practica.
