Peter Baldridge's lesson  gave us much to work on.  He will be back on Oct. 19. In the meantime we will work on material he gave us.  If you came to one or both lessons, the cost of this week's class is covered.  The same applies on his next visit.  The fee - $15 for one, $25 for both lessons - also covers the subsequent week's follow-up. 

On another note, our guest artist for September, Eduardo Saucedo, is producing a show to be performed in October.

I trongly suggest buying tickets ASAP
To do so, go to:  http://www.rivertango.com/tafudeamoc181.html
Until later, Mary
