After needing to cancel last week, Kenny Bell returns on Saturday with a couple of workshops, one for all levels at 11:00 a.m.and a second one at a continuation level at 12:30.  Kenny's classes are fun and informative.  He has become a sought after tango DJ as well as a popular instructor at many different festivals, here and abroad, so take advantage of the opportunity to work with him. 

Until later, Mary
