At this supervised practice, work on all elements of tango from walking, balance, and partnership to adornments, boleos, and ganchos while dancing to a variety of tango, milonga, and vals.

  • Milongas
    • Saturday, November 18th, 7:00-10:00pm at Nexus, 3845 S. Higuera, SLO, Hosted by Linda Beekman.
      $15 cover.

    • Other Milongas are scheduled irregularly. Please subscribe to the eMail List and/or keep an eye on the Calendar.
    • We are looking for a nice location for a social dance about once a month. Preferably it would have the feel of a social, public place (like a coffee shop, club, bar, or restaurant) as apposed to a private party atmosphere. If you know of such a place, please contact Rich.

  • Social Dances -- Not a Milonga or a Practica
    Some people just want to dance -- that's cool -- no Milonga etiquette (tandas or cabeseos) no supervision or exercises.
    • Sundays, at The Oddfellows' Hall, 520 Dana St., SLO.
      7:00-9:00, Traditional tango music as well as alternative/fusion.
      $10 for the evening
