Speakeasy Milonga #5 in Paterson NJ – Friday Dec. 2 EVENT LINK


Our events require showing proof of 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.


We urge dancers to bring their water bottle from home to cut down on single use bottles. There is also a chilled water fountain next to the bathroom to refill your water bottles with chilled water and a cold/hot water dispenser in the entry way to help keep you hydrated.


VivaTango continues to need help at the end of events to store chairs, tables, lights, and sound system. This task requires staying about 30 minuets after the end. You will be part of a team of 3 persons. This is a great way to get to know some of your fellow dancers.

Thanks for dancing at VivaTango. If you have any comments, questions or suggestions please email me at Dennis
