Happy Holidays. from VivaTango. Below is a group photo from the Holiday Milonga. Seventy-one dancers enjoyed the Holiday Milonga. We know that the weather kept many more of you and some of our special guests from attending. If you were one of those, we missed you and have planned a mid-winter milonga on February 23rd to celebrate again with hopefully better weather. Special guests who were able to attend included: Guillermo Elkouss and Vittoria Natale who taught at VivaTango for many years at our beginning 11 years ago; Mariana Fresno and Husband Thomas (Tom) who are instructors with an outstanding resumes of experience teaching and performing in tango shows and movies and who are now living in the Princeton area; and Jackie Ericson Phan and husband Sean Ericson who were married this past summer and moved to Princeton area and are now the instructors for the Princeton Tango Club. We were also pleased to have several of the students from the Princeton Tango Club join the celebration as our special guests.
The Holiday Party was the last VivaTango event for 2022. No event is planned for December Thursdays 22 or 29. We kick off 2023 on January 5th. See details below.
