VivaTango Newsletter


What a week! Last Thursday we had to cancel VivaTango’s event because of the unprescedented storm. Hurricane Ida did major damage in Louisiana, and then as usual moved northeast bringing rain and winds in the early morning hours of Thursday. The rainfall flooded many roads isolating Princeton. The flooding was still persisting at noon on Thursday. Also, there was a report that a tornado touched down in the area of our dance venue. We learned later that a tornado did pass over our venue building, but it did not touch down. However our dance floor building was closed Thursday and  the AC thermostat could not be adjusted  for our dancing. At noon the decision was made to cancel the event on Facebook. Facebook messages were sent to everyone who had indicated they were going or interested, emails were sent to all who are on our newsletter list and our web page was updated triggering an email to those of you who follow us on the web page (just go to this web page and enter your email in the upper left corner where it says follow). We hope that our cancellation message reached all of you. We also hope you all were safe and were not affected by Ida’s rain and wind.

So it is time to have FUN this week. Meredith and Andres will be teaching “FUN turns with sacadas for the dance floor”.  No storms in the forecast, and cool weather has returned. See you Thursday.
