Michelle will return on Saturday to build on what she covered Feb. 1 - a good dose of technique. We expect her second class to be more challenging.  The fee will be as before, $15 for one class, $25 for both.  The first class is recommended for everyone.  For the second class one should probably have been in tango fat least six months. 

On Saturday, March 1, we welcome back Marcelo Molina & Carolina Vasquez, Argentine Tango USA stage champions for 2011 and 2013.  They will conduct two workshops in the afternoon and perform at a milonga that evening. The cost of those classes will be $25 for one, and $40 for both.

Until later, Mary
