Modesto Tango Bulletin, Sept. 22, 2014

Eduardo Saucedo's , workshops were intense, dealing with absolute basics.  Most of us who attended have been given much material to work with.  We will be revisiting that work in our class on Saturday 27.  Saturday night's milonga was a lot of fun.


Among the attendees were some tangueros  from Great Britain, who have been on a bus tour of Northern California, and have made it their business to check out tango opportunities in every community they visit. 


Our next big event will be the appearance of the Redwood Tango Ensemble, live tango music for us to dance to.  This will be a first for Stanislaus, so mark your calendars forOctober 11.


Other opportunities to take lessons with Eduardo listed below.


Until later, Mary
