BeTango Class October Announcement

October 27 @ 6:30 pm


Hello BeTango dancers,
We continue our good progress toward Beautiful Back Ochos Wednesday, Oct. 27. If you missed the first two classes, please come at 6 pm for a brief review of what we covered.  Then we will begin the new material with the whole class at the usual 6:30 pm. Full info below.

*A new Intermediate Close Embrace class series is forming (most) Thursday evenings at my home studio 7-8:30 pm. Dates are Oct 28, and Nov 11, 18.  We will explore and practice the differences in the salon and the milonguero approach, so that we may have happy dances with all partners.  One year minimum tango experience needed. Role balanced–Four “couples” maximum. $10 per person. Email to RSVP, or sign up Wednesday.  

*A book I have mentioned in class is this: “TANGO through the eyes of a dancing psychotherapist: Embrace Me” by Igor Zabuta and Emma Kologrivova.  Available on Amazon, paperback or Kindle.  I highly recommend this inner journey into tango. 
Hugs to all,  Rebecca
