Weekly Milongas Resume March 3rd

Helen Wang will headline the first milonga on March 3rd. Helen, always lovely, always smiling will be instructing a lesson, DJing the milonga and dancing with you during the milonga.

Celebrate on March 3rd with Helen and your VivaTango Friends.

Beginner Tango Class Starting March 15th
The tango lessons preceding VivaTango milongas are for dancers with some basic Argentine Tango skills. These lessons keep the basic skills sharp and enrich the dancer’s vocabulary. The best way to obtain the basic tango skills is to take a series of classes that systematically introduce the basic skills. Pablo Garcia Gomez andIwona Ionescu will be starting such a class here on the dance floor used by VivaTango on Tuesdays from March 15th to April 19th. The classes are hosted by the Princeton Adult School. In these classes, participants will learn the fundamentals of Argentine Tango, the way it is danced, and its social significance in Argentina and around the world. Students will also explore the history of Tango and its various musical forms. Class size is limited so register soon.
