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.
