Our next class at the studio  V will be Feb. 14 - Valentines Day, wear red or pink as we work on some of the material that Jean-pierre gave us.


Two weeks later we have Eva & Pablo back, practitioners of traditional close embrace milonguero style.  They will do a couple of workshops on Milonga, that snappy rhythm which can be so challenging, and yet so fun.  Take advantage of this opportunity to work on this old style so you don't have to sit out a milonga tanda at a milonga.



In March we have a return of the Redwood Tango Ensemble.    

So much to look forward to - stay tuned.


For those of you who have asked about where to find tango shoes, Mr. Tango is in the Bay Area, and will be in Castro Valley selling shoes. This may be your last opportunity to buy good tango shoes outside of Buenos Aires

Until later, Mary
