    • See Workshop details above for associated Friday & Saturday night Milongas.
    • 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, two dance areas - one for practice and one to follow the line of dance. Traditional tango music as well as alternative/fusion.
