We had a pretty full class on Saturday as we continued to work on "ochos".  Next Saturday we have Patrick Alessandri back. His classes are always fun, so come and enjoy. 

Our next milonga will also be the last one for the year.  Mark your calendar for  Friday, November 7, for an informal milonga which includes no guest artist or introductory lesson.  Just a chance to eat, drink, socialize, and of course, dance tango.

Here is a picture taken after our last milonga with the Redwood Tango Ensemble

Until later, Mary
