Saint Patrick’s Day Celebration Milonga!

VivaTango reached a milestone last week. Two hundred dancers have signed in at our events since the post Covid restart in July of 2021. Some of the dancers have been part of the 20-year pre Covid Thursday Tango dance community here in Princeton, but may of the names are new. VivaTango and the Tango community want to thank all 200 dancers for their support. 

The Irish are fun loving people and experts at celebrating. We join in that tradition and will party hard and celebrate this Thursday. Come join in the fun and dancing. It has been a long time since Saint Patrick’s Day landed on a Thursday. My big question is will we see any kilts on the dance floor again? Wear some green.

This week, Andres and Meredith’s lesson topic is Rhythmic Movements for D’Arienzo-style music.  They will teach how to change your movement style to better reflect the rhythmic cadences of D’Arienzo, and how to make better choices of material to embody this iconic music. Andres & Meredith are looking forward to exploring this topic with you on Thursday! Lesson starts at 7 PM and Milongas starts at 8:15. Lesson $15, Milonga $15, both $20. Proof of vaccination and masks are required.
