We urge dancers to bring their water bottle from home. We no longer have access to a refrigerator to cool water before events. There is a water fountain next to the bathroom to refill your water bottles with chilled. We will continue to provided bottled water for dancers, but it is room temperature.
Our events require showing proof of full vaccination. You only have to show proof on your first visit. We also remind dancers that they should not come if they have any symptoms or have been exposed to people who have Covid. Masks are recommended, but optional. For dancers who are not able to be vaccinated, they will be admitted if they have had a negative result from a PCR test in the past 72 hours or an antigen quick test in the past 24 hours.
Tango Partner App is a must have tool to find milongas and partners while traveling anywhere in the world.
Looking forward to seeing you Thursday! Dennis
