Viva Tango Inc. would like to thank its loyal Tangueras and Tangueros (all 40+ of them) who defeated the cold, last Thursday, 1/8 and were rewarded with a lovely lesson, wonderful music both provided by Pablo and Iwona and great food provided by Viva’s chef, including as promised, a hot and delicious soup.

Thanks also to our baker Barker (as in Joan) who baked a sinful and delightful cake and Karl who brought amazingly tasteful cannolis.

What a great way to start the new year. Here are Iwona and Pablo watching over the tangueros during the lesson that covered an elegant Waltz move.

Our rule is simple; staying at home is great but we always regret NOT going (dance, gym etc.) and always happy when we did go.

E.g. if you wish to have an event on a certain holiday, just let us know. I.e. 12/31/2015 is, you guessed it; a Thursday. Well, we have a year to think about it.
and Second we will add Michael Nadtochi to our instructors and have more volunteers to take attend you better.

Have a Happy New Year and see you on
Thursday, January 8th, 8 PM for a practica with Pablo and Iwona.
