Polo & Diana finished out the month with their work on Tango Walks to different rhythms. A short video (This Week's Video) catches their summary demonstration.  

We are approaching Easter weekend, and the Tango Championship festival at the San Francisco Airport Marriot, so classes on April 4 are cancelled.  

The following week, on April 11, Mayumi Fujio  returns with two classes, one for all levels in which beginners are encouraged, at 11 a.m. and the other at a continuation level at 12:30.

For those of you looking to buy tango shoes, the Championship festival will be hosting shoe vendors that will offer opportunities to try on and buy shoes of many styles and colors. So, consider coming down to the SF Airport Marriot if only to look at Tango Shoes.

NEW: Monday night practica held at Urbano will now be held on TUESDAY.  Urbano is on H Street, behind the Gallo Center.    As the floor is concrete, however, we recommend  avoid using suede bottom dance shoes, leather is best. 

Until later, Mary

Modesto Tango is a non-profit association of tango aficionados dedicated to sharing artistic, cultural and social aspects of Argentine tango
