Saturday,  July 16, we meet again at Studio V, 4345 Spyres,  with Ed Loomis and Chooi Goh at the helm.

Ed, was for all practical purposes THE tango instructor and organizer in Sacramento.  There are those who will say that there is no one who knows more about Tango or has as many connections as Ed, and Chooi has managed to organize one of the most popular milongas in Sacramento, is a wonderful teacher and has placed with her then partner in the finals of the Argentine Tango USA championships.   

In the meantime join us Tuesday to chat, dance, socialize and enjoy a glass of wine.

Until later, Mary
