September 22nd Claudio Morsella plays live music for your dancing pleasure. He will be accompanied by vocalist Melissa Wrolstad. We heard glowing reviews of these musicians from DimOn the Tango DJ, who will play tandas between live sets. DimOn plays wonderful tandas that capture the smoothness and emotion of Tango.

ARGENTINE TANGO BASIS CLASS
This is a six-week class for beginners, dancers who want to improve their basic skills and dancers who want to learn the opposite role. It will be taught by Pablo Garcia Gomez and Iwona Ionescu on the same dance floor VivaTango uses. The classes are sponsored by the Princeton Adult School on Tuesdays.

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.
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 chilled water fountain next to the bathroom to refill your water bottles with chilled water. We will continue to provided bottled water for dancers, but it is room temperature.
Tango Partner App is a must have tool to find milongas and partners while traveling anywhere in the world.
